Heartfelt Thanks

Hello. A CAS card to share today – which actually took a little longer to create than I initially thought it would:

I used a ragged looking heart die from the Concord & 9th ‘Geode’ die set – I have a few other heart dies but this jut spoke – me……..slightly uneven, and slightly ragged-looking.

Once the position on the rectangular panel was determined and then die-cut, I placed an alcohol ink background panel behind the opening, and then stamped the sentiment.

This was then layered onto a white card base using 3D foam.

Seems quite simple – but the position of the heart, the size of the alcohol ink panel – that took a few decisions and changes of decisions – goodness knows why – but it did…….maybe the hardest decisions on a CAS card is placement – it is for me, anyway.

A simple heartfelt thanks is what the message is with this card – another one for noteworthy friends for helping me the past few weeks…….

I shall be entering the following challenges:
