CCC #94

Time for this week's Cue Card at CASology!

Scroll down if you are looking for my Countdown to Confetti post.




I created a masculine birthday card this week, actually more specifically a card for my hubby who had a birthday on the 5th.  He got his card a bit early as he left last Friday to head back to Edmonton for a couple of months. I focused my design on the embossing with just a clip and a sentiment in the corner.

1.  One main image--sentiment
2.  Lots of open space
3.  Limited layers & embellishments--clip
4.  Quick & easy to recreate

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.

Like what you did with that embossing folder. I always take it out, go hmmmmm, and put it back. What was I thinking!

Talk about CAS--this one takes the cake. Glad to hear that this card was hand delivered, since I was wondering how you'd get that clip into the mail. I'm sure James loved this card. I forgot all about that embossing folder--love that one, and it is so perfect for a masculine card.
