CASology : Journey

Hi there!

Time to announce this week's cue card at CASology !


                                                                 



We are all on a journey in life at any given time, so let's make the best of every moment, good or bad!


life is a journey card

A closer look:


life is a journey card


I designed my card in the Silhouette studio.

To go with the theme of journey, I tried to create a BG that look likes a road.

My road is the letter "S" from the font 'bauhaus 93' . I stretched it to fill the card from top to bottom and side to side. I then did an internal offset, and sliced the inner part using the knife function, removing alternative pieces to create negative space which represents the road markings.

I have 2 sentiments to share, please feel free to download and use it!

WOW!!! Silhouette folks seriously need to hire you!!!! This is amazing...as are all your ideas that you put to paper perfectly every time! I love the road - creates fabulous corner-to-corner movement! Love the bold shadow of green on "Life" and LOVE where you tucked the sentiment!

I never would have guessed that you started with an s. So clever! I've only used the knife tool a couple of times, but I know it has lots of potential in helping to create images. Thanks for sharing this creative card, and enjoy the rest of your week.

Very true that life is a journey and that we need to enjoy the ride. Haven't blogged or looked at blogs for awhile but see that you are still coming up with the most extraordinary ideas. Love this.

Love this Hannelie - your road adds so much movement to your card and it still feels CAS despite its boldness. Fab!

Love the way you shadowed the sentiment - it looks awesome! And your S road is genius. We actually have an S Hill here in Bermuda! :)
