CASual Friday card-in reverse

The challenge this week at CASusal Fridays was a clean and simple card using a heart.  Well, it so happens I've had a partially finished card sitting on my desk for several weeks because I wasn't sure how I wanted to finish the inside which featured a heart which I wanted to look like it was encased in melting ice...  so here is the INSIDE of my card for this week's CASual Friday's heart challenge.

Once again, all products are from Close To My Heart.  I used the I Adore stamp set (A1123) and Tiny Typewriter alphabet (D1222) in Blush ink on Daisy White cardstock.  This was my first try really "painting" with Liquid Glass so I actually cut a piece of acetate to the size and shape I wanted by placing the stamp on the acetate and cutting around it, adding a drop or two of the Liquid Glass on the back of the acetate to hold it in place on the card, and then generously applied a coating of Liquid Glass to the acetate.  So I'm not sure how long it's going to take for such a thick coating to dry but I think when it does it will have the look I was hoping for.
By the way, this is the front of the card and the stamp used here was the Pair a Phrase set, and now I can say I have finished this special card at long last!

Happy crafting!



  1. Annette, those sentiments are hilarious! I love it! So glad you could finish up your card and play along with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  2. Oh the sentiment and design are perfect! Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  3. Deb & Lynn, thank you both so much for your kind words and encouragement. I'm so glad I found CASual Fridays! I feel like I'm learning so much, these challenges are helping me get back to basics and in doing so I think it will help me refine my own "style" not to mention all the inspiration I'm finding there!
