A love card...literally!


Let's kick this Friday-Eve off in style:

Ready for a fab new CASE Study? I hope so! I'm sad that it's Jen Rzasa's last week with us as our muse :( Her creations have been a perfect source of inspiration and I love that we got to legitimately CASE 'em *tee hee*

So let's send Jen off in fabulous style and take this beauty of hers up for studying this week:

Check the original post of this card here!

*sigh* Sometimes it's the most simple ideas that I admire the most: I love Jen's use of twine on this card and use of white space. That's what I took from her gorgeous card to my crafty desk and got busy:


BTW: Inside this card I stamped 'YOU!' in the same font.

Instead of knots on my twine, I opted for hearts to continue the love theme. The hearts are actually a negative from a Martha Stewart Border punch. Now I'm gonna 'fess up and admit that those hearts were a tad tricky to adhere on top of the twine...the perfect medium ended up being Blu-Tack of all things (well, White-Tack in this case!)

I hope you can study along with us for Jen's final week as our muse! All levels of creative peeps are encourage to join in the fun; simply be inspired by Jen's card and go on a creative adventure :)

Every time I see someone use that impression plate, I think of you! The three little hearts under your sentiment draw me in. They actually remind me of the Legend of Zelda (the original game)...not sure if you have ever played it before. In the game you have a heart meter to show how much health you have left, and it looks just like the hearts on your card!

Sorry for going off on a tangent there. What I meant to say was "I love your card!"
