CASology : Education

Hi there!

It's that time of the year (in the northern hemisphere) ... the start of a new school year !

With this in mind ,  CASology bring you the following cue card this week :


... but remember... the cue is always open to your take on it... so show us your interpretation!

Here's mine:

A closer look:

 ... and the supplies:

Cutting file from :  Apex Cuttables.

For Silhouette users, I have this useful tip:

When using a cutting file which wasn't necessarily designed to be used on the small scale like that of a card, you have to make some changes. In this case I selected the parts that were too small to cut, selected the black fill option, and printed it instead of cutting it.

For this reason, I printed the sentiment, the glasses, string of the teabag, and the mouth of the teacup.

After that you are ready to  assemble your card, and add the finishing touches.

I used distress inks to add color to my die cuts, because everything were cut from white card stock.

After applying the distress ink, I added interest to the books by tone on tone stamping using background stamps from Kaisercraft & Stamperia.

Googly eyes for the fun!

If that isn't the cutest cup every with his google eyes and glasses - a real studious look. And of course there's the punny sentiment.
