CASology Week 29: GAME



A close up of the letters






Just returned from a fabulous vacation and realized that there was still 22 minutes left to play along with  this week's CASology's challenge and I had the perfect card for it!

I know you have seen this card in a previous post, but I didn't know how to edit it so that it would show up at the top of my blog posts ????


Card details copied from the previous post:
I happened to find a scrap of light colored wood grain paper in my stash that is similar to the tiles of a Scrabble game - Yay!  I computer printed the letters on the wood grain paper,  then die cut each letter individually using the smallest Nestability square die.

I wanted the tiles to look authentic so I die cut squares from some chipboard type product (reclaimed packaging ?), glued two pieces together, then glued the printed tile on top. 18 tiles x 3 layers = 54 passes through the Big Shot!

I created the "board" graph on the computer, glued the tiles to the board, added some bling and popped up the panel on some SU Tangerine Tango paper.

At this point, I would tell you to hop on over to CASology and 'get in the game' but by the time you read this, the current challenge will have ended!

  14. OK, just stopping here to congratulate you on your Moxie Fabber spotlight, and I see that this card came about after 54 cranks on the Big Shot. Hmmm, 175 french knots, 54 cranks ... I'd say you're a numbers gal, just sayin'! Love looking through your posts. Congrats again!
