CASology 188 - Laugh


This week's CASology Cue Card is Laugh!



I don't have a lot of joke (or even punny) stamps, so I decided to go with a famous laugh.

When you look closely, this card really has quite a lot going on - die cut panel. Die cut & coloured image. Plus another solid, dark image/sentiment which grounds Santa. By limiting the colour palette to (mostly) red, white and black, and preserving white space, the card still feels clean and simple.

I used:
-MFT Jingle All the Way
-Simon Says Stamp Circles for the Holidays
-Avery Elle Double-pierced squares
-Copics
-Stardust Stickles

And now it's your turn! We can't wait to see what you come up with! Be sure to drop by the rest of the DT for more inspiration:

So clever and not to mention another Christmas card under your belt! :) Gorgeous shading on the jolly old guy and I love his green gloves.

I can always help you out when it comes to funny/punny stamps, Ardyth. ;) But this Santa with his white on black sentiment does the trick, too! Total fun.
