Sweet CAS in 5 or less :)

Hi there, sweets! Kristen here ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m here today to show you how to make a clean and simple card in just a few short steps. Here’s the card I’ll be showing you today.
I look for inspiration in many different places. This color palette came from The Play Date Cafe blog. Isn’t it just gorgeous!? Reminds me of being back home in the South ๐Ÿ™‚ Let’s get started!

ย It took me some time to come up with a layout for the card. I love banners so I decided, why not!? I knew I wanted a large sentiment or picture so I decided to use Eye Love.

I’ve never seen a set like this and I am in love with it. It may be my new fav!!

I cut and scored my card base from black cardstock and then hand cut a banner from white cardstock. If you have a simple heart border like this, it makes for a great scalloped edge. I personally do not have a scalloped border so this is a good supplement.ย 
After adhering the border and stamping the sentiment, I realized I didn’t get a good impression. No worries though! I brought in my Copic multiliner and fixed that little problem by darkening the letters. ๐Ÿ™‚
To help make the heart stand out, I hand cut a heart from a piece of coordinating cardstock, popped it up on a foam dot and covered it with glossy accents.ย 
For embellishments, I wanted to add some enamel dots but had no peach on hand. Not to worry, you can always make your own color using a Copic marker of your choice just by coloring over top.ย 
This set is amazing and so versatile. Make sure you stop by Sweet Stamp Shop to pick up a set if it’s not in your stash. Y’all will love it! Also, leave some sweet lovins on Facebookย if you haven’t already.
Stay sweet and see y’all next time ๐Ÿ™‚
Kristen
