CAS(E) this Sketch #205

Another one of my favorite card sketch challenge sites is CAS(E) this Sketch.  Their sketches always challenge me to try and think outside the box (which is a pretty difficult thing for me).

Here is their latest sketch…

and here’s what I came up with…

I started off with my favorite size card base–A2 4.25″ x 5.5″ made from kraft card stock.  I then cut my patterned paper from 2 different 6×6 My Mind’s Eye paper pads by eyeballing it.  I have to get better at being more precise when it comes to cutting paper 🙂

Using the Pierced Heart Stax dies from My Favorite Things, I cut the hearts out of the top kraft layer, the blue layer and the yellow layer, leaving the red layer alone.  I adhered all of the layers so that the hearts lined up.

After seeing it all put together, I thought it looked a little dull, so I added the black strips along the outside cut edge because I knew that my greeting was going to be black.  I triple cut the love greeting from the Simon Says Stamp Love die set and glued them together to give a little dimension to the greeting.  Even after that, it still looked a little plain, so I pulled out my newly acquired black Nuvo drops and added those above the heart and below the greeting.  I also added the small kraft heart in the center from the Pierced Heart Stax smallest die.

I hope you like it!
