A CAS MASTERPIECE!!

Happy Valentines Day!! Does this card look a bit familiar?? Hey, I loved this CAS layout so much the first time I did it I did it again with different focal point! (If you look back two entries ago you will see a very similar card with Bordering on Romance stamp instead of the heart embosslits) I am equally quick to say when I don't like something I made so it's all good. When I make something clean and simple I get pretty excited because I think it's the greatest thing in stamping, and the hardest thing to do, and it does NOT come natural to me!! So if I come up with a CAS design, I milk it for ALL it's WORTH!! This challenge for the SUO team was to make a Valentine using only two colors and a neutral....so here you have it! ;) I made this card by making a striped ef underpiece for the main card body and then putting an overlay embossed with the filial ef...on a separate piece and put it over the striped piece like a pinafore.....so cute! Okay, I sound pretty obnoxious here, tooting my own horn, but it takes me a year or so to make a CAS creation I actually am proud of, so I won't brag like this for at least another year! Meanwhile, what else could I put along that border to milk this great idea even more??? Until next time, Karen

I LOVE your card. Clean and simple is my style, but it's not as easy as one might think...how to get from too plain to simply elegant is a real challenge...you nailed it!!!! It's so perfect and you have given me inspiration. thanks for sharing your talent.

Thanks for the great layout. I'm thinking an Easter egg border would be the next to try.

You know what they say, if you find a pair of shoes you like, buy them in every color. You just happened to find a layout that you like. It is just as beautiful on this card as it was on the first one you made.
