This week's CASology Cue Card is Travel!
I know, I know, it's barely spring and here I am with a Christmas card! But as you know, one of my main projects for this year is to make cards for two church congregations - 300 cards all together. There's no way that I can wait until November to make them - having 300 cards to make in a short time is the fastest way to destroy Christmas spirit, for sure!
So during the year,when a challenge can be used to make a church Christmas card, I jump on the opportunity. Travel seemed like the perfect cue card to adapt for Christmas - the wise guys traveled A LOT to meet baby Jesus. (Just this year I learned that they're not actually mentioned in the bible. Interesting - I'll have to look into that one!) ETA - Clarification, they are in Matthew 2, it's just their names (Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar) that are not biblical.) Guess I have some reading to do! lol!
Another thing about making these 300 cards - I donate them to the churches. I'm happy to do it, but I do try to keep my costs down. One way is to limit layers. But on a very simply stamped card like this, I like to add a little something special. To create a frame on my white panel, I simply edged it with a Versamarker and then embossed it with the same embossing powder that I used for the star.
Now it's your turn to show us how far you'll go with our travel cue card! Don't forget to link up by the deadline on Sunday at 4:00 CST.
