Casology : Pretty

Hi there!

The cue card this week is actually so easy, because we all make pretty cards!

How will you interpret this week's challenge ?

See... pretty easy!!!
               
                                                       


My take on the challenge:


And a second take...


For my first card, I stamped the sentiment from the "Truth is" stamp set by Casual Fridays 4 times to create a background for my smaller focal point.

For the second card, I used a larger cropped version of the same silhouette, but to keep it CAS, I toned down the sentiment by stamping it once only in the upper left corner.

2 cards to show the effect of scale on a CAS card. Do you have a favorite? I would love to hear your opinion!

Both are beautiful CAS designs, Hannelie! Love both, but the background out of sentiments on the first one is a little bit more attractive to me:).Have a great day!

Of course both are 'pretty' and beautiful but I like the first one slightly better as I like how you've stamped the sentiment a few times and I think that's clever. The pink girl on top sets it off your card beautifully..gorgeous x

This card made me start singing "I feel pretty"! Such a clever idea!

These are both fantastic. Love the first one a smidge more--mainly because of the clever way you used all those sentiments.

Heel gaaf gedaan. Erg mooi met de tekst op de achtergrond!

Melissa said...

Two pretty designs and so well done!!! Love how you used the silhouette and the collage of a single sentiment is such a great idea on that first card!

I love both of these cards but if I had to choose a favorite, it would be the first!

Geri said...

They are both fabulous....love the pink silhouette! No surprise to you that I'd be lovin' the first card and all the yummy white space and really cool word collage!

Karren said...

Reading through the comments so far, it seems the consensus is that the first is the favourite by a smidge. And I would agree - I think the arrangement of the text behind the silhouette is appealing. Two fabulous cards!

Kara Lynne said...

These are wonderful! The first one catches my eye a little more. I like the composition. They are both so pretty!

Cornelia (fun stamping) said...

Pure genius once again! Your first card leaves me speechless!

Wonderful cards! I have to say, I like the larger silhouette. It has great impact! Love that you cut it out of pink CS.

Gerrina said...

Wat een mooi silhouet! En hoe je de tekst op je 1e kaart hebt verwerkt is echt super! Groetjes, Gerrina

Fabulous cards Hannelie! Both are perfectly graphic and CAS. I love the bright pink!

Barb Ghig said...

I've said it before, and I'll say it again...You are so clever, Hannelie! Your 'girl' really is pretty, and I love how you played with the sentiment on both cards!

Aileen (mum) said...

Both cards are brilliant. Make me pick a favourite, I would have to say the first catches my eye just that bit more but I feel both work perfectly.

Hello Hannelie: Both this cards are beautiful in their own way.
The first one looks amazing with the fabulous sentiment background behind the pink silhouette.
The second one is bolder with the larger profile also in pink and the smaller sentiment.
You have a great eye for design.
Thank you for sharing.
Hugs,
Maria.

Fabulous layouts - an amazing use of sentiments and a single unadorned die cut.

These are both deliciously pretty, Hannelie ... I'm particularly taken with the lovely collage of sentiments forming the background behind the smaller silhouette! Hugs, Anita :)
