I've been trying to catch up with the assignments from the Clean and Simple Cardmaking 2 class.
They surprised us with a Bonus Day on Saturday, and it was all about using die-cutting with CAS cards. I remembered seeing this gorgeous card from Shari Carroll on the Hero Arts blog last Friday and wanted to CASE it the minute I saw it!
Here's my take.
Shari used a pattern on her card base with a white die-cut heart. I decided to do the opposite and leave my card base white and add a pattern to my heart.
I used a piece of watercolor paper, added soft colors by swiping a couple of different Distress Stains across it, then stamped over the colors with the Hero Arts, La Letter, in Vintage Photo Distress Ink, before die-cutting the heart. I added two smaller hearts, a tiny bow and some gems.
And since the theme of this card is love and I used a fun, different fold, I'm entering it into the Hero Arts February contest.
I've got today and tomorrow off from work and plan on catching up with class - still haven't looked at Day 6 yet.
Come on by early next week to see some photos of the floral department where I work - looks so pretty all set up for Valentine's Day! Hope everyone has a good week! :)
