Addicted to CAS - Challenge #45

Well, it's that time again.........another challenge at Addicted to CAS.  This week your hostess is the lovely Harriet from Alley Cat Cards and the word she has chosen is:

Geometry - the branch of mathematics concerned with the properties and relations of points, lines, surfaces, solids, and higher dimensional analogs.

Geometric - 1. of or relating to geometry, or according to its methods. 2. (of a design) characterized by or decorated with regular lines and shapes.

Hmm mm, I thought!!!  I was never very good at maths at school and didn't think I had anything to match this challenge, so went ahunting on the web and came up with the following fantastic image......can you guess who it is???? lol

I printed out the image on my laser printer and then gold foiled it.  I then used some hexagon dies to cut it out and layered it up.  The sentiment is computer generated and I used the smaller dies.  I've embossed the square card blank with Craft Concepts Stained Glass e/f and added a ribbon.  I took several photos of this but it seemed whichever way I took it, it either glared with the gold foiling or just looked dull, so I am afraid this was the best one.

Can't wait to see your creations.  Enjoy.

Happy crafting.


  1. This is a great image, Karen. How in the world did you add gold foil to it? Im not very clever and cant work it out lol lol. I love how you die cut the image. This card is stunning! xx

  2. It was worth hunting around to find this image - most unusual and certainly fits the geometric theme

  3. Wow, such an amazing Marilyn (I think!) image, Karen ... so cool and artsy ... looks as though it should be in a gallery! Hugs, Anita :)

  13. Amazing card Karen and i was convinced it was a stamp and was going to ask who made it until I read your post. Do you have the foiling machine ? I was thinking of getting one but then I have to buy a laser printer too. The detail is absolutely amazing. Hope you are enjoying your holiday.
