Hi everyone. With so many enabling sales this past holiday season, it’s no surprise that I have accumulated a lot of new goodies to play with. 😂😂🎉 This year, I resolute to use everything I buy at least once. I started already with my New Year’s card posted on New Year’s Day where I used the Time Flies stamp set. Today I am using my new Heartstrings dies to create this super CAS card.
I first die cut the string heart twice to stack them for dimension. I cut one from Silver Foil sheets and the other from a scrap of white cardstock. I did the same for the little heart, except I die cut three from white cardstock for even more dimension.
I adhered the stacked hearts to an A2 size stitched rectangle white shimmer cardstock panel, offsetting it to the left. The sentiment was heat embossed with silver glitter embossing powder on a strip of the same white shimmer cardstock. For dimension again, I backed it on to a slightly larger strip of white shimmer cardstock and then mounted the whole strip with foam tape.
The panel was attached to a top folding white card base and a few clear sequins were added to finish. With the shimmer cardstock, silver foil and silver glitter embossing, this card is shiny and sparkly IRL.

I used the negative diecut piece as a guide to place the pieces in the correct position. And with so many other great sentiments in the Many Everyday Messages stamp set, I decided to use a generic sentiment on this one.
I am entering in the following challenges:
