CASology 145 - Shape


This week's CASology Cue Card is Shape!



Oh, my there are a lot of ways to interpret this Cue Card! I actually made this card by 'accident'.

I actually made it on purpose, but didn't realize until I looked at the photo of it that I had used so many shapes - square (the card), rectangle (the panel), circle (balloons), triangle (balloon tie up thingies). I cased this card from last week's challenge, by Mary Brown (aka Stampercamper).

So what makes this CAS? I used a white card base with nothing on it but my Papertrey sentiment. I didn't add any embellishments. The edges are clean with no distressing.

I love the look of the layered inks and the definition the tiny black strip gives. I used a Simon Says Stamp circle, a Clear and Simple Stamps triangle,  and the 'strings' are from a Simon Says Stamp sentiment set.

Now it's your turn to get in shape (just kidding, I love you just the way you are!)

Check out the rest of the DT for some more inspiration:

  6. You've 'shaped up' one heck of an awesome card! Honestly, at first glance I saw only the balloons....then I read your post!

    I really, REALLY like how the sentiment 'ties' in with the images (as in balloon strings!) even though it is one panel away!

  7. I love Mary's card too and this is an awesome CASE! And I'm so glad I finally know the name of those bits on the bottom of a balloon - "balloon tie up thingies"! :D

  9. What a wonderful card, and I do learn so much when you talk about your design process and your thinking. I am most impressed with the way you did your balloon strings. I am sure you thought all about where each curlicue belonged, and they look just perfect.
