CASology #91: Ransom NOTE

Today marks the beginning of a brand new cue word week over at CASology!  Like many of the cue words, this week’s word can be interpreted more than one way!

I took off in a direction that will give away the fact that I’m a big mystery novel lover.  Oh, and I have a thing for chocolate too…

Sweet Stamp Shop is sponsoring CASology this week, so I used one of their many fantastic stamp sets on my card, Alpha Tabs.  I added a few chocolate looking ink smudges for good measure and then had this crazy idea that I should crumple the ransom note a bit because, after all, isn’t that the official way to make it look like I mean business?!  I preserved white space by using small letters to create both dimension and interest.  The message is the focal point of the card!

Please be sure and go take a look at the Sweet Stamp Shop’s new release that is kicking off today!  You’ll want to take advantage of the discount code over at CASology for 10% off (today only) in the Sweet Shop on the new release sets!

Also, go say hello to the CASology design team members and this week’s guest designer on their personal blogs!  They work so hard each week to provide inspiration for you and they would love to hear from you!


Be sure and link up your own NOTE creation on the challenge blog by Monday at NOON (CDT) for your chance to win this week’s Sweet prize!
