CFC85--Round of Applause


Hooray!  We made it to the end of the week!  LOL!  I'm looking forward to some fun activities with my family this weekend.  What do you have planned?

After taking a break last week, I'm back for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge.  Our theme is Round of Applause:  include at least one circle in your clean and simple design celebrating an accomplishment.


CAS-ual Fridays Stamps is sponsoring our challenge this week, so we're giving you a little preview of some of the goodies you have to look forward to in the next release.  :)

I decided to make a card for a male teen, which called for a graphic design, complementary colors of teal and orange, and a simple sentiment.  I'm guessing there are many teenage boys who would find the words "congratulations" or "way to go" totally uncool, but "epic" seemed appropriate.  :)

In case you can't tell, the circles with the open arrows are popped up on foam dots, while the last circle is punched in the teal panel with the orange arrows and sentiment stamped in the negative space.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Island Indigo)
Stamps:  CAS-ual Fridays Stamps
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip)
Tools:  EK Success (circle punch), Papertrey Ink (Linen & Canvas impression plate)

We'll be sharing more sneak peeks of the new CFS sets starting January 14th!  In the meantime, visit the rest of the Girl Fridays to see what they have up their sleeves, then enter your creation in the gallery for a chance to win a fantastic prize from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!

This is truly a perfect card for a teenaged boy. The combination of colors, graphics, textures, and layers all work perfectly well together.

Just perfect for a teen boy, Christina! The orange and blue, the graphic pattern, the clean design, and of course if all that wasn't enough, the "epic" will surely resonate! Teen boy and sympathy cards are the most difficult to make, for sure. Great job on this one : )
