It's time for another CASology challenge. This week's cue card word is:
I'll admit this is a tough one for me...as I am not particularly wild...so I really had to do some thinking about this cue word. I've come up with a couple cards that I hope will be considered as meeting the challenge of wild.
This card is my favorite (and the last one I made)...probably because it is the most CAS. The deer (Deer are wild...right?) die cuts are from MB and I've had them for quite a while but haven't used them. Shame on me!! For this card, I cut a white card base 5.25 x 4 inches and ran it through my xyron, then covered it with glamour dust. I cut two "snow" hills and did the same with each of them. I used a sponge and lightly inked the edges of the snow hills. The deer were cut from black card stock. The sentiment is from PTI (a stamp that I cut apart) and stamped in Archival Ink (over the top of the glitter). I layered all the white pieces together, adhered the deer and then added thin strips of black to the edges of the white background and adhered it to my card base. The description took longer to tell than the card did to make. LOL! I think this card also qualifies for the St. Luke's Charity Cards Challenge too!
This is the second card I made for the challenge. Used the deer die cut from MB. I can't remember where I got the tree stamps, but I do love them. I've used my "snow" embossing folder again (love that thing!!). I stamped the trees on a scrap of paper to get the shape of the hill I needed, then used the negative to mask off the sky and a circle to mask off the moon. I inked the sky, removed the mask for the moon, stamped the trees, and then embossed the panel with the snow EF. The front snow hill was a separate piece of paper and was also embossed with the EF. I added a touch of glitter and ink to the snow hills and to the trees. After I finished it, I decided it was probably not CAS enough for the challenge, but thought I'd post it anyway.
This is actually the first card I made for the challenge, and wasn't happy with it at all. I think it's probably because I couldn't figure out "WHY" I would send a card that says "wet and wild" to anyone...I guess I like for my cards to have a reason or purpose. The penguins were cut with the Cameo. I added googly eyes. The sentiment was also cut with the Cameo. I used the snow EF again....are you tired of it yet?
Guess that's it for me right now. Thanks a million for stopping by! I truly appreciate your comments, and hopefully, I'll be making the rounds to see all of your fab creations (if my crazy life slows down a bit!! Until next time....
