Week 123: EAT


This week contains a holiday full of food and family for many people.  We only thought it appropriate to have a cue word to go along with it.  Thankfully, card making is calorie free (most of the time)!


We have one of our regular sponsors returning this week.  Add a Little Dazzle is sponsoring us again and is offering our winner a $25 gift certificate to their online store!

Now let's take a look at what this week's guest designer and the design team cooked up to inspire you!

Guest Designer:  Coni

Balance the busy-ness of your focal point with simple sentiment fonts & lots of white space.

Use a different coloured card base and layer a CAS border.

Sticking to one or two colours helps to make a design CAS.

A busy and colorful border works if it is surrounded by enough white space.


design defined:
Adding small areas of patterned paper can add interest to a CAS card.


design defined:
Using a monochromatic palette simplifies the design.



design defined: 
Sometimes a smaller card size works best with a smaller image.

Ground your main image with a simple masked line.
