Week 37: HOPE

Hopeful.  That's what spring makes us feel!  Is there anything more refreshing than that kind of feeling?  A new start.  A clean slate.  A sunny outlook.  What does HOPE mean to you?

We HOPE you don't mind us providing this little reminder...

Now let's see what this word made the design team think of this week!

design defined:
Use die cuts to make a unique and subtle background for your CAS card.

design defined:
Some dimension can still work on a clean and simple card.  The key is to include lots of white space!
design defined:
Lots of open space with limited layers & embellishments creates an eye-pleasing CAS design.

design defined:
Using a simple image with a simple layout keeps things CAS.

design defined:
Adding some foam dimension behind the focal panel still allows the design to remain CAS.

design defined:
Don't forget that white space doesn't have to be white!

design defined:
Remember the sweet spots when placing a single image.

design defined:
One main image with subtle layering and minimal embellishments follows the definition of CAS.

Now go have fun and don't forget to link up your HOPE creations by Sunday at 4:00 p.m. (CDT)!
