For the first card, I used the most basic CAS layout ever, but made the focal point an orange library card. *squeal* I love library cards. I miss library cards. A whole generation is growning up never having signed a library card, not even knowing what a library card IS! How totally sad is that?
But this card isn't sad. It's very, very happy and would love to accompany a birthday gift of a book, don't you think?
A paper clip with ribbon! Ohmygosh, this card makes me totally happy!
The second card borrows its layout from Papercrafts Go-To Sketches. I would never in a million years come up with this, which is the whole point of using sketches...to do new things and learn stuff.
This layout uses the design idea that angles love curves. All the right angles on this card are offset by the round flower and card. The contrast increases the visual interest. Pretty cool, huh?
Please note that I used a giant prima...so outside my box...with a giant rhinestone...so inside my box. And the box is round this time, which sort of makes me feel like I'm in a foreign country and don't speak the language.
You want to know my favorite part of this card? Can you guess? It's those little squares. I love them irrationally and will be using them again. For sure.
If you'd like to play along with CAS64, upload your birthday card using orange to SCS using the keyword CAS64. And please tell Jen happy birthday because she's amazing.
