CASology : Soft

Hi there!

Time for a new cue card at CASology !


Soft... where will the cue take you this week?

I incorporated the following elements to achieve a softer look:

  • A vellum feather (which looks more like a leaf when I look at it now 😲)
  • Soft partial embossing
  • Soft colors, browns/cream instead of my go to B&W

A closer look :

The sentiment is from the Silhouette online store Design ID #159823. I used the gradient fill option to print it.

The feather was a free file, but I am so sorry I don't have a link to share.

Thanks so much for visiting me today!

Hope to see you cards in the CASology gallery!

Soft as a feather they say and so this is perfect for the challenge, Hannelie. Making it from vellum gives it an even softer look.

Love, love the partial embossing! For me, a 'rule follower,' I am amazed how many times I could have 'broken the rules!' Thanks so much for inspiring us!!
