CCC #18 - ORANGE



Ready for another cue card from CASology?  This week's CASology Cue Card is:


Sadly we are getting into the winter cold season again and I always like to have some get well cards on hand to cheer someone back to health.  My take this week on the colour orange is orange juice!  Out came my 'Make Lemonade' Lawn Fawn mini stamp set and my Copics.

I used some orange patterned paper as my background and then stamped my image and sentiment on white.  After I coloured the image using two shades of orange I scored lines above and below the sentiment and then used partial embossing to emboss only the top portion of the card.  Finally I added Stickles to the ice cube for interest.



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 Jean (winner of CCC #16 - WILD)

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