CASology #32: Flame


Hello, friends!  It's time for our latest challenge at CASology, where the cue word this week is FLAME.  This one may be a little more challenging than last week's cue (RED), but I really look forward to seeing where this cue leads everyone!

My mom just celebrated a big milestone birthday on Valentine's Day, so my mind went to the flames of birthday candles (I wouldn't dare give away her age, but let's just say there were lots of them)!

Materials Used:
Stamp: Rubber Stampede "Make A Wish"
Inks: black, Scattered Straw distress ink, Copic markers, black fine Sharpie marker
Other: Cuttlebug "Rebecca" embossing folder, ultra-fine glitter

I kept this card clean and simple by using only one stamp and lots of open space...however, the dry embossed frame, the hand-drawn border, and the glitter on the flame add some interest.  I used warm distress inks and a deep orange card base to mimic the warmth of a flame.

Here is a close-up of the glittered flame...nothing like a little ultra-fine glitter to perk things up!


So, what does FLAME mean to you?  I can't wait to see!  Be sure to link up your card(s) by 4:00p.m.(CST) Sunday, and check out the cards by our design team and guest designer, too!
