CCC #10 - WHITE

This week at CASology our cue word is:


To me white means pure, innocence, serene, peace.  I knew I wanted to make a card that would comfort someone  who was going through a difficult time. So it started with the sentiment, with that I knew that I wanted a butterfly to be a part of this card.  I punched the butterfly out of white dotted vellum to add some interest to a card which was going to be rather plain.  To draw attention to the butterfly and focal point I die cut a circle opening in a top layer of white cardstock then I embossed the circle again drawing attention to the focal point.  I popped up this panel with foam dots not only to draw attention once again but to protect the butterfly which adds emphasis to the message the card conveys.




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.

This is just the absolute perfect sympathy card--or really for any occasion to show you care. I was admiring your butterfly--then happily remembered that I have that punch, too.

Good golly, this card is absolutely perfect for your sympathy sentiment (which, "in my creative opinion," is the hardest type of card to make given the gravity of the situation, you want the card to be perfect, which this one is.) Love it, Tracey!
