Today I have two cards to share with you, both based on CPS Sketch #250. If you frequent my blog at all, you will know that I love both CAS and extremely layered cards. I have used the sketch to create both types of cards, and I hope to do this on my blog more often in the future!! For my first card, I used lots of fun papers, diecuts and embellishments...here is what I created!
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (pink)
Paper/Diecuts: My Mind's Eye (Love Me 6x6 pad/diecut sheet)
Ink: Clearsnap (Donna Salazar Mixed Media: black, chiffon)
Metal Charms: Making Memories
Pins: Maya Road
Flower: EK Success
Seam Binding: The Ribbon Reel
Twine: May Arts
Bells/Jewels: Michael's brand
Corner Rounder: Creative Memories
Instructions: Make card from pink cardstock. Cut banner paper slightly smaller, and sand the edges. Cut four 1.75" squares from different papers, round the opposite corner on each one and sand the edges. Arrange and adhere to the middle of the banner paper block. Add three metal charms to the upper right side, and adhere the entire block to the card front. Cut two banners from patterned paper, and adhere to the top and bottom of the card. Add a fabric flower to the middle of the card, and accent the middle with a pearl ribbon charm. Tie a double bow from seam binding & twine, and tie together at the middle with two pink bells. Adhere the entire ribbon accent to the left side of the pearl ribbon charm. Adhere the sentiment flags to pins, and stick into the top of the flower. Stamp the word "4 EVER" right below the striped paper square. Add heart diecuts to the fussy cut banners, then stamp the pins to the top of each one. Accent the hearts with clear jewels to finish.

For my second card, I did a very clean & simple version for the same exact sketch. I bought these Valentine's diecuts on Tuesday, and I felt like they were just perfect for this card!! I really love how it turned out!

Letter Sticker: Glitz Design
Instructions: Make card from kraft cardstock, then ink the edges. Adhere the diecut tickets to the middle of the card, then accent the middle with a jewel. Stamp "today, tomorrow, forever" right below the ticket on the end. Cut a letter sticker "x" to size, and adhere inside the box next to the word "yes" to finish.
