Clean & Simple Card Making Class Week 1

At times, the CAS card making style is difficult for me.  I usually make my cards complicated with lots of layers and embellishments.  I love this style though and so I decided to take this class on line.  It's wonderful!  I'm getting lots of ideas and inspiration. 

I finally got some time to make a card and be pleased with it.  I finally finished it last night at 10PM!  I have another one in the works......see it's supposed to simple, yet it takes time to complete a card that I like!  You are not the only one struggling with designs, colors, layouts, etc!

Jennifer McGuire showed us how to make these cards on Day 3.

And here is my take on it...........

It was fun cutting out the die cuts; I used Cheery Lynn's Two Hearts (DL128),  a Marvy punch for the smallest one and a Spellbinders heart for the middle size heart.
What you do is cut several hearts and layer them to give them dimension.  Cool idea, right?

Here you can see a side view of the card and see the layering of the die cuts.

All in all, I'm very pleased with the result, though I think you can see that I had to add bling to mine! I felt it needed something and so the Swarovski crystals did the trick.  It makes the whole card sparkle!

Come back soon, as I'll post more of my CAS creations or you can join us for a class and make some yourself!  Check the calendar for the dates.

Thanks for stopping by,
