Beyond Plaid Heart Punched CAS Valentine

Today’s CAS Valentine Card features my favorite pattern from the Beyond Plaid Stamp Set.  The other three patterned stamps are great, especially for masculine cards… but this one IMO is simply wonderful!1casvalentine5minutecardwithbeyondplaid I’ve paired the Beyond Plaid stamp set with a sentiment from the Delightful Dozen stamp set and a bit of vine street embossed primrose petals card stock.2beyondplaidheartpunchedandpoppedcbyuAfter stamping the woven ribbon patterned image from beyond plaid, it was punched using a large heart punch.  Isn’t this fun?  I love all the implied texture from the ribbon patterns don’t you? 

LOL… wouldn’t it be fun to use the rock ‘n roll technique or color directly on the stamp with markers to produce a pretty multicolored ribbon heart?3casvalentinedelightfuldozenandrhinestone“Be my Valentine” is a nicely scripted greeting from the Delightful Dozen stamp set.  I’ve added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel (medium sized) to the center of the stamped heart.  It appears gold in the photo… but it really is a pretty clear rhinestone!4profilecasvalentinecreatedbyjan2013slfVery USPS friendly, today’s card would easily slip into a standard A-2 envelope and require no additional postage.  The only dimension on today’s CAS Valentine is provided by the vine embossed card stock, popped/stamped heart punched motif and rhinestone.

I’ve been experimenting a bit with ink techniques… and just may have come up with something new for tomorrow’s Super Saturday Tutorial post.  Hope you’ll stop back by!

I’m looking forward to reading your comments!

Hugs,
