CAS-ual Fridays Stamps - Girl Friday card for February

Well, hello there everyone!! Wonderful to see you all and hope your week has gone fabulously so far. Its still been very hot here and my husband is telling me I'm starting to look like a raisin. There's only so much sunblock I can rub on each day so I think I need to get a very wide-brimmed hat!!

I'm up on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog today with a card that would be perfect for Valentines Day:

This was so much fun to make!! I heat embossed the Heart to Heart Background Stamps in white on a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth CS. I then set myself up with my Ipad, Altenew Artist Markers Set A and some chocolatey snacks and spent a few hours watching Netflix and colouring the hearts. Heaven!!

Once I was finished I fussy cut the panel out and laid it across the card front on an angle, so I could draw some pencil lines of what would be sitting on the card. I grabbed the Love Ya Fri-die and die-cut it from the middle of the panel, keeping all the pieces. I then die-cut it again from a dark red paint chip. A strip of white CS was added behind the panel and the words inlaid into it. This was then popped up on the card front with foam tape, with the overhang removed and some co-ordinating sequins from Neat and Tangled glued on for some sparkle!!

I hope I've given you some ideas on how to use your background stamps a little differently, and if your tempted to buy the products I used today don't forget to use my Girl Friday code to save yourself 15% on your purchase!!
