Casology : Sprout

Hi there!

Time for a new cue card at CASology !

                                                       

I hope my card will inspire you to join us this week!

A sharper angle to show off the foiling on the leaves:

My 'sprout' is a cutting file from the silhouette online store. I printed it in black with a laser printer and added the beautiful green with the laminator foiling technique.

The background was stamped in Versafine black with a background stamp from Great Impressions South-Africa.
The sentiment is my own and I will share it at the end of the post.

That foiling is AMAZING! I'm glad you caught the light on it to show it off. Lovely sentiment also~

Beautiful, Hannelie. Especially love how you foiled those leaves--and I couldn't see that until you showed the close up, so I'm glad you did. They just pop.

Geri said...

Wow - the foiling is stunning! Such a beautiful, subtle way to add some shimmer and shine! Another FABULOUS sentiment - thanks pal!

Is there anything you cannot do with your printer?!?!? This is fabulous - that font is gorgeous and the touch of design behind your sentiment totally reminds me of dry ground the sprout has just pushed through.

Such a very clever idea and fabulous take on the cue card. Those foil leaves are stunning!

Barb Ghig said...

Stunning design, and I love that you chose foiling for your 'Sprout'! Beautiful subtle pattern behind your sentiment, too! Thank you so much for sharing another fabulous sentiment with us...I love the font!

The foiled sprout looks fabulous Hannelie and your background looks just like the earth is sprouted out of!

I love your foiled sprout. You've inspired me so much with your foiling, that I've actually been looking at laminators online. I keep watching for a really (REALLY) good deal on one.

Erg mooi Hannelie! Leuk, jij bent ook bezig met Fab Foil, ik heb het laatst ook gekocht. Ik zag bij Time Out challenge dat je een honourable mention kreeg voor het casen van mijn kaart, die post van jou miste ik. Heb alsnog een comment gegeven, want je hebt het prachtig gedaan!

So, I already loved this crisp leaf sprig against the bold black sentiment and delicate background after looking at the first photo, Hannelie ... then I saw that the sprig was foiled ... oh my, what impact ... it's a stunner ... I LOVE it! Hugs, Anita :)

TaeEun said...

Wow, the foiled sprout looks stunning! Great idea of you to use that background stamp to give the sprout its ground!
