CCC #24 - STAR



It's Tuesday today and we are bringing you the last CASology Cue Word  before Christmas.
This week's word is:


For my card today I stamped each line of the sentiment in a different colour.  On the word joy I left out the 'o' by masking the stamp with scotch tape and stamped a star in it's place which I embossed with clear embossing powder.  The sentiment is very simple leaving lots of white space so I added some twine and adhered the white panel with foam tape to add 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 Marlou (winner of CCC #21 - TIME )

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

Stamps: Peace, Love & Joy CL469 (Hero Arts)

I love this! The star in place of the o in Joy is perfect for this cue word...I am going to have a hard time not stealing this card idea!

Love this, Tracey! Using that star for the "o" is such a great idea!!! Love the colors you used and all that white space is just dreamy! :)

So clever to use the star that way. I love the font on these sentiments, and they can totally stand alone. The twine is such a nice touch.
