CAS Valentine's Day Card


I tripped across this sketch over at Lucy's Cards and had to play along, especially since I need to make a few Valentine's Day cards and this one makes itself :)  Extra bonus - it's CAS!

Finally got to use the smallest die in my heart nesties, popped up the third one and added some bling to it, used Dawn's fabulous Signature Greetings from PTI for the sentiment, and rounded the bottom corners to sync with the curves on the hearts.  I struggled for a long time as to whether I should add the bling by the sentiment or not and ended up going with it but am still undecided as to whether I like it or not.  wondering if it takes too much away from the bling on the heart.  What do you think?

Short and sweet today as I have lots to do.  Have a fabulous weekend!





What's In It?
Stamps:  (PTI) Signature Greetings
Paper:  Real Red, White
Ink:  Black
Accessories:  Heart Nesties, Bling, Dimensionals

I love this gorgeous, heart-filled CAS Valentine creation, Marisa! I really like the bling by the sentiment--looks like little bubbles to me. "I love you so much it makes me fizzy" is what that says to me!!!

PS I just noticed that you use "What's In It?" as the label for your card recipe at the end of your posts. LOVE that!! How unique. :)

Love the popped up heart with the bling - this card compared to the sketch did make itself - aren't those fun~ Bling by the sentiment works -- Great CAS card!

I'm leaning toward CAS more often in my card-making, and this one is GREAT! I love the bling exactly the way it is!

Oh, reading how you had a lot to do for the weekend just reminded me, that is one more reason I'm behind. I went away for the weekend.

I love your sweet CAS and I do like the bling with your sentiment. Just gives it a little pizzaz.
