CASology #244: STRONG

Hello, friends!  It's that time again...a new cue card is up at CASology!

This week our sponsor is Kitty Bee Designs and we were given two images to pay with; one is called "Emily the Elephant" and the other is "Kite Fun Panda."  Both depict our cue word well -- strong winds and a strong animal!

I had some fun with both images, and I paired them with a pretty sentiment designed by my CASology Design Teammate, Hannelie.  I printed both images and sentiments directly onto one piece of heavy card stock, then cut in half and scored to make my cards.

First up, this cute kite-flying panda.  I know you need some STRONG winds to keep a kite flying up in the air!

I used a Cuttlebug border embossing folder to add interest to the bottom half of the card, maintaining white space.  I added white dots on the kite and the panda's cheeks with a white gel pen...I think it adds a lot of interest to a very CAS design.

Next up is Emily the Elephant.  She is a STRONG animal, but definitely cute, too! My printed image and sentiment were not perfectly centered on the card, so I balanced them by adding a strip of washi tape down the side of the card.

Again, I love the effect of the white gel pen dots on the eyes and cheeks! The little red flower gem is a fun extra touch.

I can't wait to see how you interpret the STRONG cue card this week!  Be sure to link up your card by noon on Monday (Central time). You will also be inspired by the many ways our Design Team and Guest Designer interpreted the cue this week...be sure to check out their blogs, too!
