The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays this week is Sweets & Treats:
I have made two cards for this challenge - one of which is a logical outcome given the challenge topic, the other one is me thinking outside of the box a little. I blame it on my degree days! I quite like taking an idea and going in a less obvious direction with it, but that's just me!
For my first entry:
I couldn't resist a little bit of Calligraphy on this one :) (I have gotten lazy with it lately - stamping sentiments is sooooo much quicker! Sometimes you just don't have the right one though) This font style is called 'Valentine's Day' (book: Calligraphy Alphabets Made Easy by Margaret Shepherd - it is a bible for any Calligrapher!) I thought it was very fitting given the little love hearts on the letters - it's almost sweeter than the sweets!
The sweets are two circles of cardstock covered in tissue paper and then a twisted piece of corresponding tissue placed between them with some dimensional adhesive.
Now.....are you ready for the next one? Check my next post!
Well, I hope you like it. If you do, or you don't, then I'd love to know :)
Thanks for stopping by and thank you again if you read all my ramblings!
