CASology #236: ROMANCE

Happy Valentine’s Day!

What better time to roll out the fun and mystery of love with this week’s CASology cue:

Given that it is Uniko Studio‘s 5th Anniversary this month,  I couldn’t go past Uniko’s Pure Florals: Cosmos for this Challenge.

I discovered that the humble cosmos, when given as a gift to a romantic partner, represents the notion of walking together hand in hand, or expresses the joys that love and life can bring. That felt suitably romantic to me, as did the use of the colour pink – the colour of unconditional love and romantic love.

This was very clean and simple to make. The petals of the cosmos have been paper-pieced using a paint-chip, which had three colour graduations on it. Easy way to create a monochrome card! The idea for the layout came from CASE this Sketch #60  – a while back!

And that’s my take on this week’s cue. Please pay a visit my team-mates and our Guest Designer Skye and take a look at their romantic creations:

This week, I am also linking this card to:

Time Out Challenge #76: ‘Friends are connected heart to heart, distance and time can’t break them apart’

 Gone with a CAS style, inspired by the floral imagery and the monochrome colour scheme.

  1. I adore that you’ve taught us about the Cosmos, Hazel! I had never known that, but not surprised as they are the most darling little flower – for this most darling little card! Happy Valentine’s Day sweet friend! xx hugs and love…

  2. Brilliant to paper-piece using a paint chip! Perfect way to get a gradient of colors! Lovely stamp, too…thanks for the info about the flower, I had no idea. Such a meaningful card!

  3. This is gorgeous, Haze! Brilliant idea to use the paint chips and I love how you’ve framed the flowers. Also thanks for the flower lesson – I had no idea there was a flower called a cosmos much less what it represents.

  4. So sweet and delightful Hazel. Coloured perfectly and a gorgeous showcase of this Uniko set. Thanks for linking up at our challenge this month. Sarah x
