Happy Tuesday everyone!
A CASology cue word undoubtedly close to many of your hearts right now:
I expect there to be lots of amazing entries on this subject matter!
And on the topic of learning, I learnt three things while preparing my CASology Graduation card this week:
1. The mortarboard hat is actually named after the hawk tool that is used by bricklayers to hold mortar while they work. You probably already knew that, but it was a revelation to me. Here it is, compliments of Wikipedia:
Now, it all makes sense to me!
2. When you stamp Tuxedo Black ink onto pearlescent paper, you get this cool bronzy, silvery colour:
An unexpected, yet exciting discovery! No need for Wink of Stella this week!
3. A teeny, tiny sentiment stamp can make a fun CAS border, leaving lots and lots of clean, ‘white’ space!
Proof that you never stop learning!
Hope you have fun with this cue this week, and a hearty congratulations to all of you who have loved ones graduating this year. It’s undoubtedly a bittersweet time for all concerned.
Take a look at the amazing inspiration offered by the Design Team, and our wonderful Guest Designer this week, Sarah:
