CASology ‘Pearl’

20180609_100322

So here it – my guest designer spot for CASology. Here is the cue card:

Week 304 - Pearl.jpg

I was initially going with a wedding anniversary card for hubby, as it is our Pearl anniversary at the beginning of July. 30 years married – I obviously got married very, very young. 🙂

However, I was looking at something to colour in a pearly kinda way, but came across these couple of dies from Stampin Up. I thought the sentiment would be great for a clean and simple card. I did think about colouring the star in a pearl colour, but I decided to go with adding some pearls to it instead. Even though there are quite a few pearls, I still think it gives a clean and simple look, a symmetrical look for the pearls, and as the card is only in two colours – except the pearls – it remains quite clean.

I also used  a Catherine Pooler die from a previous Stamp Of Approval for the postage stamp layer to add some more simple detail.

I hope you are able to join this challenge with us, and I look forward to seeing what you create. I always enjoy seeing how these cue cards ate interpreted by other people, from the more traditional to the more quirky.

  1. Hi Lynda! What an excellent take on the Cue word Pearl. Love how you have used different sizes of pearls to embellish the die cut. The striking combination of colors makes your card eye catchy. Thank you for guest designing with us at CASology. Happy Crafting. Hugs- Bharati
