Neon Thanks

I've been wanting to try an idea I had that was inspired by another lesson in the Online Card Classes Holiday Card Workshop. When I saw this week's CAS{E} This Sketch! challenge, I decided to use my idea for the sketch. Here's my card, then I'll explain:

The lesson we had was how to make a multi-colored word grouping for mass production. I just wanted to execute ONE. Some of the words are a bit wonky, but it's my first one, so I'm still pretty pumped at how it came out.

I used Hero Arts' neon inks for the words, and a new Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder, because, well, you know: the white space.

Tip One: Don't have neon paper? Make it with direct-to-paper using the neon inks.
Tip Two: You know those teeny tiny dies that come with the Spellbinders Nestabilities? Not good for much, right? Wrong. I used one here for the shapes under the sentiment strip so they weren't boring half-circles.

Oh, and here's the sketch:

I'm kinda liking these CAS cards, though I'm not using up my s-crap nearly as fast. I think I need to go see what else I can stir up in the craft room. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. The slight wonkiness of the words makes it more fun than it already is.

  2. At last, a use for this itty bitty dies - and that is a good look for them,too.

  3. Hey, a use for the teeny-tiny ones...nice! Knew there HAD to be one, somehow. I think this is the perfect use of neon - against the white is just the right pop :)

  4. Love this crisp clean bright look! So glad you played along with us in this week's CAS(E) this Sketch!

  5. Great way to showcase a sentiment! Love the neon colors and this crisp white :) Thanks for playing this week at CAS(E) this Sketch!


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
