CAS-ual Fridays Challenge: Over the Edge




Just what do we mean by that?
CFC127: Create a Clean And Simple project with some sort of element that extends past the edge.
Sound like fun? The challenge will remain open until noon on Wednesday Feb 12th.

I have been starting to sell some of my cards in a local floral shop and I need to replenish my supply there especially with Valenine's Day coming fast.  Valentine's Day is one of the biggest days to send flowers.....and you need a card, right?  :)

I've used a fantastic NEW cling stamp called Drawn Heart Background from the Simon Says Stamp Valentine Release.  You can find all the new goodies HERE.  I started by swiping my stamp with Lipstick Red Ink (from Simon Says) and laying a piece of Lipstick Red Cardstock over the stamp to allow the ink to transfer.  I didn't care if it was perfect or had great coverage.....that's the beauty of it!  I added this panel slightly left of center leaving a small white strip on the right.  Now for my "over the edge" element.  A speech bubble was die cut using the Talk Bubble Dies and then stamped using a coordinating stamp from the set called For the Record.  The sentiment was stamped using Black Ink and a small enamel heart was layered over the top of the stamped heart for some dimension!

My element does not make my card bigger than a traditional A2 size........I've just started with a smaller card base!

This week's winner will receive the stamp or Fri-Die set of their choice from.......


Thanks so much for sharing a part of your day with me!!
