Hi folks! I've got two more cards from the recent CAS-ual Fridays Stamps release. They both feature, in a more non-traditional way, the first border stamp on the left from the Lotsa Links set.
A subway map. Why not, right?! I have to admit that I'm not exactly sure what occasion I'm going to use this card for, but I got it in my head that the smaller links looked like stops on a subway map, and I wanted to see what it would look like. So I picked Boston, since we got to know the subway a little during a prior vacation. I added the stops in small, messy letters, so there wouldn't be a ton of focus trying to read them all. I just wanted the general idea that they are subway stops.
It's so fun getting all your stamps out and playing with them. While doing this for the release projects, I was so excited to find out two things:
1) the tiny trio of four-squares from Only You exactly fills the middle of the small square links; and
2) the keys from Tech Talk fills the middle of the large square links.
I started by making a tree shape, with the large squares for the trunk, and the small squares for the branches. Then filled the branches to make the leaves, and filled the trunk with the asterisk key (it was the most generic one). Shading in the tree branches helped it look a little less stark. The sentiment is also from Only You, except the ampersand which is from an old PSX wooden alpha set.
Thanks so much for looking!
