CASology : Congratulations

Hi there!

It's CASology time!

The new card is:

                                                            

I was thinking of all kinds of words and ways to congratulate someone, and came up with this card:


High five CAS card

A closer look:

High five CAS card


We are sponsored this week by Stamplorations, and I was so lucky to receive the Artsy-Border-Maker from Shery to make my card this week!

I stamped one of the border stamps several times with Picked Raspberry distress ink to create the BG for my Silhouette cut sentiment.

While I was trying to come up with an interesting way to congratulate someone, I typed the 2 words high five with the two "i's" lining up, and it just didn't look right. So I decided to remove the one "i" and stretch the remaining "i" to fill the space of both "i's" !

I think the tall "i" plays with the feeling of 'high' ... or well, that's just the way I think!

I saved it in printable form, and you are welcome to download and use it on your projects!





My teammates also created wonderful cards to inspire you:




Thanks for visiting me today!

Hope to see you play along this week!
Hugs
Hannelie

I have just found your blog. Thank you for your generosity in sharing your sentiments. Many of them are thoughts I've wanted to use in my card making, but I have no talent in creating my own. You really made my day! (And many more days to come.) I also pinned several of your cards - lovely, inspiring work. Thanks again.

I noticed the tall, single "i" right away, and loved it immediately. What a great idea, and love that striped background you set your sentiment on. Fantastic card. Bev

Such a cool design, Hannelie! I love how you extended the "i" on your sentiment, and the Artsy Border in the background really makes it pop! Thanks so much for sharing your sentiment with us!

A fine, FINE example of your creative cleverness!

S-t-r-e-t-c-h-I-n-g the letter "i" between the two words absolutely blows my mind! How do you come up with all these amazing ideas???

Thanks for sharing the sentiment. Soooooo versatile and gender neutral!
