Heart of hearts

Hello lovely people,

There's another weekend gone and I hope you all had a good one.

I decided to start making a few romantic cards with Valentine's Day in mind and first up I wanted to have a play with a lovely new die I bought.

I definitely find myself leaning towards CAS creations with this die as you can see...

Romantic card with lots of pink hearts

I used a pearlescent card behind the die and a darker pink heart covered with Wink of Stella popped back into one of the heart shaped holes.  I finished the hint of bling with a single tiny gem.

At least I remembered to stamp the sentiment before I got too far with the card design, just in case I messed it up!

I'm off to Bath for 2 study days this week and then I shall be beavering away with coursework as my deadline for part 2 of my course is looming on the horizon...2 weeks to go!

I wish you all a good week ahead :-)

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

This is very pretty Kat I have a similar die and gree that it does lend itself to lovely CAS cards - and well done on the sentiment! - I know to my cost how easy it is to ruin a card with a wrongly stamped sentiment x

A beautifully CAS design Kat.... and ooooh I do like that die!! The sentiment says it all... and well done you for getting it perfect! I've got a MISTI now which helps me place sentiments to perfection - and if it doesn't stamp properly you just pop the top down again and it corrects! Sooooooooo clever!

Big hugs

Ooh wow, another one. How did I miss 2 in a row?! LOVE that fabulous die, what a gorgeous effect with the pearlescent paper behind it and the darker pink heart finishes it so beautifully with that little touch of bling. Love the texture on the white paper too, it really is a gorgeous CAS card hun. Hope the study days went well and you're getting ahead with your coursework. Good luck! Hugs, Wends x
