Have a Heart - 3 Ways


The Simon Says Wednesday challenge this week is "Have a heart" - create something for someone you love. I'm using a SSS large heart doily in black, woven with some narrow white ribbon and tied into a little bow. I added a Valentine sentiment, and that's all this card needed


Here's the red version....


And here's another version without the ribbon. I seldom do CAS cards because I find them more difficult to do than lots of layers, but these were quick and easy and that pretty heart die makes a beautiful statement!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful weekend!

All three are gorgeous. You make difficult look very easy and beautiful. Stay warm and dry. We have about 3.5 inches right now maybe another 1 or so to come.

These are all so adorable! Like you, I have a difficult time with CAS cards too. I think I need to practice with that....

All fabulous CAS Carol!! The lace in the heart give a look very different and so beautiful!! Love the first one so much, it's very elegant!!
I think it's difficult make CAS,it needs to have a very precise idea before beginning and must be very accurate, the design must be very simple but impressive, with a clear focal point...
You succeed very well in this!

Beautiful all three, but my famous is the black! And what great idea to woven with ribbon. Love this!

Oh my goodness Carol, these cards are stunning! My favorite is the black. Not a typical Valentine color, but it's gorgeous on this card. Love all, but I'd do it in black!
Hugs,
Judy

Quick and easy cards for sure. I really like these. I have a hard time with CAS myself but then lately surprise myself how often I find myself making them.

I like the blue one best - I think the non-traditional Valentines are getting my attention this year - I need to make one. Pretty cards! Hugz

You are right Carol, this beautiful heart is all the card needed along with a sentiment! That heart always makes a beautiful sentiment and I love it both ways-with or without the ribbon! Now I need to get mine out and get to using it as it will be a NBUS for me. lol Hugs, Brenda

Sorry, hectic day yesterday. I came in and peeked at these lovely hearts, then forgot to come back to comment. I do love that heart die so much. Each style looks fantastic!
