CAS/CASED Valentines Card

 Welcome

I saw a card on Instagram, that gave me the inspiration for this card, but unfortunately I now don't recall who designed it to be able to give them credit.  If any one recognises it, I would love to acknowledge them. 


My daughter and her husband are not 'fussy' people when it comes to cards, so I immediately thought of them.  If I recall correctly the original card had stamped hearts and lines,  I used die cuts and embossed the lines using a metal stitch die, and also flipped the layout. 


To fit with the Less is More challenge, I stamped and embossed the word love on the heart. 


The  heart die cuts were cute from a retired set by Whimsy stamps, once I had adhered them onto the card, I layered Glossy Accents over them


I am really happy with how this turned out.

It is a super design Maxine, the embossing really draws the eye to the placement of the flowing hearts, Instagrame can really be a great source of inspiration.

Beautiful CASE, Maxine! I havent' seen the original on IG but yours sure is cute! Very LOVEly!

Quillish said...

Wow.. what a lovely CAS card, I have my Seen many CAS from you... you rock at them. Oh this Instagram I tell you, it happens to me too. You see a card, it creates an impression, but you don't remember whose it was. I was new at cardmaking and I did a card which was as CASE, I forgot who made. When I was later more familiar with the cool artists, I follow - I saw, I had Cased Francine Vuilleme!

Oh I love this card Maxine!!! Such a cool idea for a simple, CAS valentine! I hate when I find a card that inspires me and then I can't remember or find it again to give credit. I love your embossed lines, they look like they are stitched, is it an embossing folder or did you make the lines yourself? Love the "love" heart too, so cute with the other heart cut out of it. It is a perfect match to the sketch! Hugs, Brenda

Great interpretation of the sketch, CAS and very creative. Really love the embossed lines and wonder if the technique was a die cut that was a stitch die, and then you embossed by scoring the lines...really interested and would like you to share your technique. The scatter of the red hearts and glitter added to your focal point just enough embellishment for your CAS card. Don't forget Double Trouble is a partner with The Paper Girls this challenge and the requirement has been met. We would love you to enter in our challenge too and can find the link to our challenge on The Paper Girls challenge post.

What a great idea to emboss the stitch lines for the shape Maxine and the hearts go beautifully over the top. A very pretty and clever design! x

This looks great! Love the stylish, crisp color combo of red and white. The hearts really pop from the card base, I love the dimension. Great idea to use those lines as base, very CAS!! Thanks for joining us at Less Is More!

This is such a lovely CAS card! The red just jumps off that white background, especially with the glossy accents. Thank you so much for joining us Paper Girls in our Sparkle and Shine challenge!
