CASology : Foliage

Hi there!

Tuesday is CASology day!

This week we invite you to play along with the FOLIAGE cue card!


I hope my card will inspire you to play along!

A closer look:

I used a Monstera leaf cutting file from APEX Cuttables. If you are looking for beautiful cutting files.....................and daily freebies.......................... go click the link ⬆ 😃

I started off by sizing the leaf just a bit bigger than my card's dimensions, then cropped it to fit my card front.

I used white card with splatters which I created with Artmate spray paint I bought at a local stationery shop.
To finish off the card I added a sentiment which was partially cut with my silhouette and the rest printed and layered over gold sparkly washi tape and vellum.

I created a digi stamp sentiment... as always you are welcome to download and use on your projects :)

Fonts used:
Catandra Script
Dream orphans

Looking for more inspiration?
