Patriotic Hello

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge: #86 – colors.

CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #86

And here is my take:

Patriotic Hello - by karen @ carefree creations

My nephew is at West Point for college. He has been there since the first week of July and isn’t allowed online or any outside interaction except mailed notes/cards. So this one is for him!

I was going to try to do some negative/positive die-cutting wizardry, but that didn’t work out so well, lol. Instead, I die cut the ‘hello’ from the circle, then I die cut ‘hello’ from both blue and cream. I layered the cream onto the blue and fit it into the circle. I did the layering because I wanted the tiny bit of shadow to help the letters outside of the circle stand out.

Make sure you check out the other design team members:

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

  1. Perfectly CAS and awesome! I love how you die cut the sentiment. I haven’t played with my dies that much to do that kind of fun stuff. You make it look and sound easy.

  2. Fabulous CAS card! Not quite sure I understand how you did it, but it sure looks great! The colour scheme works well for a masculine card, your nephew should love it
