CCC #6 - School

Time for another cue word at CASology!  It's that time of the year again when the kids go back to school a year older and a year wiser.  Parents as much as we love having them home we can't wait for then to go back to school.  This week CASology cue word is


For my CAS inspiration this week I created a card for my daughter who is going into grade 10 this fall. I have always made cards to encourage her when she returns to school.  With her being 15 I needed to make a card that was cool, not babyish and that gives her gentle persuasion to keep working hard to maintain her grades.

I decided to go with an all white card.  I limited the number of items I placed on the focal panel to:
  • a white die cut, clear embossed apple popped with a foam dot for the COOL
  • a red stamped A+ for the gentle encouragement to keep up her grades and add some interest and pop to the design
  • a simple computer generated sentiment


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:

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