CASology 41 - Giggle!


Today's CASology Cue Card is Giggle!



I don't know about you, but to me, giggle is different from laugh. Or chuckle. It's a visual, 'bouncy' word. I have a 10 year old daughter and one of the things I love best about this age is that she still embraces fun enthusiastically (not so much, my 14 year old son, who is 'too cool' to enjoy anything). I love to hear Kate and her friends giggling away like no one's listening. I wanted to capture that feeling in this card, and I'm happy with the result.

Stamping dots all over a card is sure to create movement. Add in a fun little smiley face, and you have to giggle, right? That little face is from DeNami, and I just love the way you can place it differently on the circle to make the 'guys' look like they're giggling with each other. (ETA - at Becky's request, here's the link to the DeNami set of faces)

Yes, there are 3 layers here, but lots of air between the background panel dots and lots of white space on the front panel, and absolutely no embellishment (not even Stickles, gasp!) all help to keep it CAS.

Now it's your turn - before you go, here are links to the blogs of the other DT Members - stop by for a good giggle!

  2. Perfect card, Ardyth! I know exactly what you mean...I have a boy and a girl and she's a giggler...well, maybe more of a squealer, and he's... well...he's a boy!

  3. What a fun card! Which stamp(s)from DeNami did you use for the face? I have searched my stash and can't find anything close. I would love to make a similar card to send to some friends that really need a good giggle!
    Thanks for a wonderful blog.

  11. A lot of us who are under constant pressure tend to eat too much and do not take good care of their bodies.
    You have to find a way to take the tips you learn and make maximum use of them.
    If the answer is I''''''ll do whatever takes''''''''.

  12. You totally captured 'giggle' along with his/her friends! The colors, the varied positions of the smiles and the dots make for one sweet and happy, happy card! It's not often that we see three layers on an "Ardyth" card - love the change up!

  14. These are so much cuter than those old "smiley faces". Oh, I know, it's because they're giggly faces.
