Hi everyone, Gaby here with a CAS card using some dies I like, layering, and markers.  I wanted to challenge myself to make some nice cards without using stamps.  I started by die cutting the hearts out of two pieces of cardstock, one pink and one white.  Then I ran a coordinating piece of cardstock, one in white and one in kraft and ran them through my Xyron to use for layers.  Then I placed the leftover piece from the die cut onto the sticky side of each layer and replaced the die cuts into the opposite color paper, like an inlay.  Once that was done, I cut the paper at an angle and then adhered it to a pink piece of 4.25" x 5.5" with foam tape.  I had some additional die cut words that I covered with Glossy Accents and let them dry.  Once I attached those, I added some Nuvo Glitter Drops and some faux stitching with a Copic Multiliner and a white gel pen.  Once that was all dry, I colored the inside of the hearts using a Spectrum Noir Glitter pen.

The heart die is from Simon Says Stamp and the words are die cuts from the Lawn Fawn heart envelope die.  I will be posting more cards like this in addition to my regular projects that use stamps, stencils, inks, embossing powder, and the kitchen sink! I just think it's nice sometimes to use some of your supplies that you might forget about because of all the new products. Until next time, happy crafting!
