CASology 42 - Care
This week's CASology Cue Care is CARE!
Well, who cares more than your mom? Or more than you do as a mom? I decided to make a Mother's Day card for this week's Cue Card. (although this one can't be for my mom, who does not care for hot pink! lol!)
Late last week, I received my new Silhouette Portrait (smaller than a Cameo) which I purchased from my 'local' (2 hrs away) scrapbooking store, Scrappingreatdeals, who is also this week's sponsor (see details on CASology). Fortunately, SGD also has a thriving online business, so while I always drop by when I am in town visiting my parents, for those 'in between' shopping times, shipping works, too!
I was playing around with my new Portrait and ended up with this MOM cut. The symmetry of the word makes for a very pleasing design.
When it landed on my desk, over top of a 4x4 square scrap, I thought - why not?
Because this card is 4.25x4.25, having the word hang over the edges will not prevent it from fitting into a standard envelope. And it's fun because it's different and unexpected. I kept the card clean and simple by not adding any texture or pattern to the colours (the Sour Apple cardstock is slightly textured - Bazzill, I think). Just some Stickles on the edges for sparkle!
Now it's your turn to show us what you care about. Don't forget to link up before the deadline on Sunday at 4:00 CST (5:00 Toronto time).
