CCC #4 (CASology Cue Card)

Time for another Cue Card at CASology. Moving on to week four and what a response the site has had with so many fantastic entries every week! This weeks cue card is:


I wanted to show you this week that a CAS card does not have to be white.  I didn't use any white on my card this week but I allowed my one layer focal panel to have lots of open space.  The card itself can be put together easily but for me it is the design process that is more time consuming.

The birds are from Melissa Bickford's Tweet Talk stamp set and the sentiment from Heart-2-Heart #3.  Both  can be found a Papertrey Ink.  Instead of using white I creating this clean and simple card using Ripe Avocado and Kraft.



Head on over to CASology today to learn what the `cue card`means to you, how you can play along and see the all the cards created by the Design Team to inspire you.

Don`t forget to visit the blogs of the other members of the Design Team:
Tracey McNeely (that`s me)


and this week's Guest Designer Lindsey (winner of CCC #2 - Happy)


I can't wait to see what BIRD means to you!


All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: Ripe Avocado, Kraft
Stamps: Tweet Talk, Heart-2-Heart #3
Ink:  Simply Chartreuse, Hibiscus Burst Aqua Mist, Summer Sunrise, True Black

Thats an unbelievably cute card! For some reason I always thought of CAS as _white_ spaces. Glad you changed my thinking with a kraft CAS card!

I'm a big fan of things stacked on top of each other ... they look great on kraft too! Good idea to use something other than white now and then.
