CCC #60

Are you ready for this week's new CASology cue card?
Perfectly fitting for this time of the year.  The new cue card is:




I stamped my focal image and sentiment on my card base but wanted to accent it with some patterned paper. I created a frame using two stitched mats. When you have a smaller focal image and/or sentiment using a frame grounds it so that your elements are not lost on the page.

This is fabulous. I never thought of using patterned paper that way, and I love the look. You are right in how it really makes your focal point stand out.
