CAS Heart


It's been a l-o-n-g time since I dragged out my alphabet stamps - but that's what I did when I first started creating this card!  I always forget about having them - and usually there's one of two letters missing from the set!  Ah.....what can I say!  They just have a way of vanishing!  I'm SURE it couldn't have anything to do with me! 

I started off with a piece of white textured card stock and layered it on black.  The heart is from SU and was punched out.  The "i" is from a very old alphabet stamp set (CTMH) and the "you" from part of a sentiment (SSS Kit of the Month).  I added some glossy accents to that one little solid red heart but you really can't see that in the photo. 

Anyway, a quick "I love you" card!

I used the sketch from CASE this Sketch and will enter it in their challenge.
Thanks for stopping by.........
Lynn

Oh I love it. I was thinking of doing the challenge also this morning. These are my favorite types of card, CAS and Love all wrapped up in one. Enjoy your day, Lynn.

Hi Lynn, this is so refreshing for me as I am just making Christmas or Diwali cards most of the time.
I like this big heart with tiny hearts inside and the feel of it all. Lots of white space to breathe. Perfect for a Less is More challenge. Lol.
Love,
M

Lynn, this is sure a gorgeous CAS card and I do love that type card.

I was just on someone else's blog and they said the pixie was taking things from their craft room. Had an item one minute and the next gone. Maybe you have one, too. Ha

Ah, you're back in your CAS element with this one! So very pretty, and even though I couldn't see your G.A. on the solid, that was a nifty touch. The solid drew the eye right in on the heart. Really loved this one...Great card. TFS & Hugs

I love all the white space and that bit of black really sets it off! Such a pretty heart! Such a pretty card!

NanaConnie said...

Wonderfully creative use of that sketch, Lynn! Love the idea of the Glossy Accents on the little red heart. I can solve the missing alphabet stamps mystery. When they are hidden away & unused for too long, one or two of them fall in love and elope, never to be seen again. :-D

You ever notice it's never the X or something that gets lost either...for me it's usually the E or L, something I use all the time *facepalm*
This is so perfectly CAS. I love it :)

Fabulous CAS card! Had to chuckle at the lost letters! One of my favorite alpha sets is missing four letters...and I have absolutely NO idea where they could have gone!
