CAS(e) this sketch #209

Hi there!

A last Valentine's day card for CAS(e) this sketch this week!

My card, a one layer take on the sketch:

For my card I used the inlaid die technique for the hearts and simply stamped my sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black across, using my Misti.

Really super quick and easy!
The hearts are from Miss Kate cuttables, cut with my Silhouette.
Sentiment from Happy Little Stampers : Everyday Sentiments. 

Adding my link to the following challenges:

Less is more ~ One layer : Opposites attract

  • Up/down
  • Big/ small
  • Fonts: Bold Cursive/ Simple smaller sans serif. (BTW... according to typography experts this is the  rule in combining fonts... opposites attract, but steer clear from conflict )
PS... I know red and pink are not really opposites, but I've grown up learning that you can never wear pink and red together 😄. Anybody else that was taught that way too? But these days I guess anything goes!

CAS-ual Fridays ~ Pink red and white

Just us girls  ~ Hearts

Happy little stampers ~ Anything goes with dies



Thanks for looking!

Hannelie this is so simple and so gorgeous!

Stylish perfection! And you've squeezed in so many opposites, I'm impressed! I agree about wearing red and pink as I remember hearing the same thing too. I love the bold "happy" over the hearts. MISTIs are a fab tool, aren't they?! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

Cool card! I love the inlaid die-cut technique. I was taught that you couldn't wear pink and red together, too, but now I love that combination!

I Love all your opposites attract elements in your pretty clean and crisp CAS hearts design, Hannelie. No one wore red and pink together when I grew up either! Now I love that combination for many designs. TFS my friend. Hugs...

Crisp, CAS, elegant and so so sophisticated Hannelie. I love your take on the opposites challenge and you always produce such inspirational and eye-popping cards. Just perfect. You could enter it over at Anything Goes with HLS stamps too as it looks like you've used some of their goodies here! Have a good day and thanks for playing with us at Less is More. Sarah

Rooi en pienk ...verseker het die twee nie bymekaar gehoort nie, ne!!!!! LOL!!!! So het die oumense geglo (definitief my ma inkluis!!!) Gelukkig kan mens dit wonderlik saam laat werk soos jy hier gedoen het op jou lieflike kaartjie!!!! O, dis so mooi, vrou!!!! Wat ek die meeste van hou is die oulike swart kolletjies wat jy bygesit het!!! Wanneer ek hier kom kuier weet ek, ek is in vir 'n fees van lieflikheid!!! Vandag het ek jou nie gelos vir poeding nie - ek het natuurlik hierdie skepping by CTS gesien en was haastig om te kom vertel hoe baie ek daarvan hou!!!! Pragtig en baie oorspronklik gedoen!!!

Yet another gorgeous creation, Hannelie. Love the opposites you've used here, the different directions of the hearts looks fantastic. I never used to put pink and red together but loving it whenever I see it now.
Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x

You're a fountain of knowledge, Hannelie. The list of opposites and the clue about fonts is great. The 'do not wear pink with red' brought back memories but now I do it anyway. ;) Your pink and red, many different opposites card is a pure CAS one-layer beauty.
