Cameo Valentine so very CAS

Hello Bloggers......a bit quiet around here but the boss and I are packing up and selling all the stuff we don't think we'll need anymore.  It's a big job but it feels quite liberating, 'stuff' weighs you down and we want to be able to just 'pack and go' when the mood takes us!

I do have a little card to share today though. I thought I should have one ready well in advance. It's another Cameo designed card, I have a few that I played with but this was just very CAS and made up in a spare few minutes :)

  • In the Studio Software I drew a rectangle with rounded corners sized to 5.25 x 4.00 inches.
  • Next I drew a heart shape with an outer dashed line and 
  • A rectangle with rounded corners sized to 5.25 x 4.00 inches  was added around the heart shape, making sure to centre the heart. 
  • I picked a font to sketch the word Sweetheart, sizing it to fit within the cut shape.  
  • I sent the sketch penned sentiment through the Cameo first then added my DP to the cutting mat to cut the heart.
  • I centred the sentiment behind the DP with double sided tape. Then popped up the piece over a plain white top fold card, using foam tape.
  • To complete the card I added a half pearl flourish.

I cut an envelope for this card too.  This design came from the SIL Store and I just cut a panel from the front to add a plain white addressing area.  How fabulous to be able to make matching envelopes for my that!  The DP is from a cheap 12 x 12 pad I bought in Aldi .....of all places.  It's the perfect weight for an envelope.

Thanks for calling past, now back to work for me :)

Beautiful Sue.
Have fun packing.
Thanks for the tip for the thin cardstock/paper - I have loads of thin cardstock now I have an idea on how to use it up!

I wish I could get into using a machine. This is amazing, Sue. Olga is right, the pearls are a perfect touch.
