CASology 131 - Birthday!
This week's CASology Cue Card is Birthday!
In fact this week is my husband's birthday, so this challenge is very timely! For this one-layer card, I chose an MFT image (do you ever buy whole sets because you're in love with one stamp? This was the stamp in this set!) and a Simon sentiment. They work together because they both have a heavy, solid, square-ish portion (the all-cap HAPPY and the gifts) and also a lighter, curvier portion (the script birthday and the ribbons). Keeping all 'the action' in the bottom one-third of the card preserves white space and makes the card feel very clean. I finished it off with tiny pops of colour by using enamel dots. They add a festive feeling!
Now it's your turn! Before you make your birthday card, make sure to check out the other DT members for more inspiration!
