Week 301: THRILL

We're thrilled about this week's new cue word and we're pretty sure you'll feel the same!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)
Let's take a look at what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!

Guest Designer:  Mugdha
design defined:
Black & white with a little pop of color is classic CAS.

design defined:
Layer your image and sentiment to preserve white space.

design defined:
Use the Rule of Three and foam tape for dimension.

design defined: 
Don't be afraid to fill half of your card with designs and keep the other half totally blank!

design defined:
Using diagonal lines adds interest to a CAS design.

design defined:
Highlight your image and sentiment by putting them on a tag.

If you don't have a die cut for your sentiment, just fussy cut it yourself.

Use the sentiment to ground your scene.

design defined:
Add a little shadowing under your image to ground it and keep it from "floating."
