CASology #98: SHINE


It’s time to let your CAS design skills shine over at CASology this week!  We’re fast approaching the 100th challenge mark and we’re getting pretty excited!

“Shine” reminded me of warm sunshine, so I went with it, using an abundance of yellow!

Stamps:  Sweet Stamp Shop (sentiment)
Dies:  Taylored Expressions, Memory Box (birds)

I cute the sun rays piece with the Ray of Sunshine cutting plate from Taylored Expressions.  I then glued the entire piece to the yellow card base.  I happened to have some silver (SU Brushed Silver cardstock) die cut birds leftover from a baby shower project and used three of them on this design.  I decided to use a simple sentiment.

Do you notice how the lines from the sun and the placement of the birds and sentiment guide your eyes around the card?  Use of clean lines helps the main elements stand out on a CAS design more easily.
