CASology #232: CUT

Hello, friends!  Welcome to a new week and a new cue card at CASology!

This week our sponsor is STAMPlorations, and they have a great selection of dies (CUTplorations thin metal dies).  They cut so cleanly!  I decided to play with a birthday word die since I seem to make more birthday cards than any other type throughout the year.

I paired a Hero Arts "Happy" sentiment with the STAMPlorations die cut "Birthday" and then lightly stenciled the blue and gray circles using the ARTplorations "Retro Circles" stencil.  A few sequins finished it off!

I'm also linking my card up to the current STAMPlorations January CAS Card Challenge -- where the optional color twist is silver or gray -- and to the Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge.  I used silver glitter paper and gray (and blue) distress inks on my stenciling.


Be sure to link up your CUT card by noon on Monday (Central time).  Check out the Design Team and Guest Designer blogs for more inspiration!
