Ying and Yang for CAS Challenge #152

By | November 30, 2015

I have a quirky little card for you today to enter into the CAS Challenge 152.

This week was a sketch challenge and we were asked to use the sketch below as inspiration.


It reminded me of Ying and Yang so that led my initial interpretation as I decided to invert the colours. I originally wanted to use something else, but had lent the pivotal product to a customer who is waiting on her own order to arrive. Then the Greetings Thinlits popped into my head –  I tried them out and am quite pleased with the result.

Stampin Up Greetings Thinlits CAS #152-001

I’ve inlaid the words into the gaps left by the thinlits and used a little bit of metallic thread behind my ovals. I quite enjoyed making something other than a Christmas card though I couldn’t stray too far from the shiny stuff!

I hope you like it too and would love to know your thoughts so do leave a comment,

    I love this card! The color scheme gives timeless elegance to your card, and the shiny silver cardstock and metallic thread add a fun touch. I really like the simple design of the embossing folder and the inlaid sentiment. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful card with us at CC&S, and best of luck to you in our DT call!
