Tear Two Ways at CASology

CASology has some really creative ways to play with this week's cue card: TEAR.
I read it two ways, so I created a card using it two ways :)

I thought about tears of sadness first, then about the verb to tear, so I did both- a sympathy card and a matted image with a torn edge.

It's always good to have a few sympathy cards on hand for those unanticipated moments.
This is a classic example of a CAS card: black and white, lots of white space, 
focal image with a simple sentiment. The floral die is from Simon Says Stamp 
and the sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

Swing by the other DT member blogs to see how they interpreted the cue card.

  2. What a great take on "tear"....very nice contemporary style but still in keeping with the caring aspect of a sympathy card.

  3. Love the crisp black and white...very eyecatching!
