Be Still My Beating Heart...


My heart goes a little faster occasionally when I'm creating, especially if a challenge sparks the perfect combinations of colours and stamps, today's little project was one of them moments...

This ensemble above of a card & matching tag came about after seeing the last challenge at Do You Stack Up (DYSU) challenge HERE and seen below...

Kraft & Twine is a combination I haven't used for some time and the pop of red and white in the photo above sparked my creation! 

I started with the card and began by stamping the chevron Washi stamp from Wonderful Washi on a piece of white CS so that the design went over the edges of the CS. I then mounted it onto some Real Red CS before adhering to my Kraft card base. 

I then created the 'Thank You' label using stamps from Label Love: Thank you and adhered it to the PTI die cut with foam adhesive. Before I adhered it to the card with more foam adhesive I wrapped some linen thread around the centre of the chevron 3 times. Here's a close up of the detail...

I thoroughly enjoyed making this CAS card that I had to go on and make the matching tag! It's been ages since I've made a matching tag too! 

The process of making the card was the same as the card except for making the chevron stripe smaller in width. Though I missed the deadline for the challenge it really sparked my creative juices!

That's all from me today. I'll be back again tomorrow with a trio of CAS cards to share, until then, thanks for stopping by.
