~ In The Background ~

Hello Sweet N Sassy Friends!

Holly here :)  

Today I am going to share with you a CAS technique that I just love.   CAS (clean and simple) have always been a challenge to me, but I am starting to get the hang of it!

This technique, which I call "In the Background", is simply the use of the image as a watermark on the base cardstock, making the sentiment the stand out.

Here is my card:

I took the tiny hearts that are the negative on the heart border die and used them around the card.  I also used the new heart dies to carry the theme below the border.   Super simple and super fun!

Here are my details:

Together Silhouettes Clear Stamp Set

Very Vanilla and Kraft

Versamark and Chocolate


Heart Die Set

1" vanilla/red gingham ribbon
The Twinery brown/white twine
Label nesties

Thanks for stopping by today!
