CASology 175 - Pie


This week's CASology Cue Card is Pie!



I have been reorganizing all my dies lately - I had stored them by theme, but now want to store them by manufacturer, so when I came across these pie chart dies from MFT (sorry, retired), I knew I would use them for this challenge. I wanted to have a heart fitting in as the final piece, but didn't have one the right size. I used the smallest MFT Heart Stax die and cut it out of the final piece instead. But then it was tricky finding a sentiment. I was thinking "you complete me", but found this Ellen Hutson sentiment in the 12 Days Companion Greetings which works perfectly to make a fun valentine or wedding or anniversary card.

That's a big focal image and there's quite a lot going on, so I kept it simple by limiting the colour palette to neutrals with one pop of "copic-wink-of stella-glossy-accents" red. That is a seriously cool technique for getting a sparkly shine!

Now it's your turn! Don't forget to drop by the rest of the DT Blogs for more inspiration:

Girl...you are so clever! This is so cute - love the red sparkle on the heart. I have yet to try Stella's winking colors (other than clear) but I sure like what I see!
