I (heart) you - CAS Card

I sometimes forget to make a Clean and Simple Card 
and am glad for challenges like the one at
Card Makin' Mamas this week (A Simple Little Challenge) (

It's really hard to stop right here when
 I know I can add
 swirls, bells, whistles, ribbons, glitter and glam.
This card, however, can be made up literally in minutes. 
 Great for those times you've GOT to have something to 
get in the mail right NOW!

The card base and 2 alternating layers were 1/8" increments
(according to my Scor-Pal - 

 The sentiment and heart were stamped
 (the stamps were my daughter's from years ago)
 and embossed with Ranger Red Embossing Tinsel (

  This is a new product I got from Blitsy recently and I really like it.  
I bought it with the intention of using alot of it on my Valentine's cards.

Some Dollar Tree double sided satin ribbon and 
3 whole "gems" and this 
turns out to be a pretty good card.

I die cut the sentiment layers with the Spellbinders
 Grand Calibur - Nestabilities Card Creator A2 Matting Basics B.
 This set makes card making so easy! 
 I can't wait to find the Basics A on sale somewhere - or better yet win it 
(and you know I'm practicing the power of positive thinking because

I've already labelled all of these for my "B" set).
