CASology Guest Designer!

Hi guys

Today, I'm excited and delighted to be joining the fabulous CASology team as Guest Designer for Challenge #122.  To work alongside these super-talented ladies this week is an absolute honour!

So, without keeping you waiting, here is this week's cue card...

I had a few ideas flying around in my brain for the word 'flag' but after a little thought, and two attempts that ended up in the bin (I'm sure that happens to all of us!) this is what I created...

I hardly ever make sport theme cards and always struggle with masculine cards so I really set myself a challenge with this one!  For my disasters that ended up in the bin I was trying to create a golf course scene with masking and ink blending but it just wasn't happening so I decided to grab some dies and textured cardstock instead.  I cut some scraps of the cardstock and used a snow drift die to cut each colour.  After layering these up I adhered them together and then ran them through my Big Shot with a stitch oval die.  I used a small piece of twine to create the flag pole which I secured under the front 'hill' and used a folded over piece of textured red paper from my scraps to create the flag, adhered on the back with a small glue dot.  I placed the oval on my card base which I used as a guide to position my snow drift die.  I then used an embossing mat to create the debossed impressions on the card base, following the curve of the hills previously created.  The sentiment was computer generated and I used a tag die to cut this out before adhering to the card with 3D foam pads.

Materials used:

  • Cardstock: Papermania - Premium Textured Cardstock
  • Dies: MFT Die-namics - Snow Drifts; Lil' Inkers - Stitched Ovals; Clearly Besotted - Tag Along
  • Twine: Hemptique - Earthy

I can't wait to see what the rest of the Design Team have created this week, why not take a look here to grab some inspiration.

I want to say a huge thank you to the CASology team for having me this week and I hope you'll find the time to play along.
