Welcome to Week 2! Wow, we have been just completely blown away by the response to CASology - we had 86 entries and we're already over 100 followers! Melissa really had a great idea with this one!
This week's cue card:
For this week's card, I went ultra-CAS. Four little stamps - the Inkadinkado sentiment (I masked the rest of it - it says "You make me smile all over my face"), the large solid circle (probably a Papertrey stamp (when they're clear, it's sometimes hard to remember which stamp came from where!)) and the smiley face from The Stamps of Life (Smiles2Stamp). Crisp black frames for drama and definition and I'm done.
When I'm making a card with so few elements, I often use embossing to add some texture, shine and interest to an otherwise pretty flat card.
An important CAS element (sometimes one of the most frustrating) is placement. If you're off, even slightly, on a card like this, you see it right away. CAS can be very unforgiving, and precision is a necessity (but as always, there's exceptions to that rule, which I'll talk about another time).
