Week 389: DEAR

 


Dear CASology participants,

You are the best!  Thank you for your continued support and for playing along with us each challenge!

Sincerely,

The CASology Design Team


"Dear" can take on a lot of meanings, so let's see what you create when you think about this word!

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 our guest designer created for inspriation!

Guest Designer:  Tenia

Puns & texture are fun ways to spice up an CAS card.
