Love in Miniature

My cards are often not A2 size as I just cut what looks good--sometimes a problem to mail--LOL!  When I saw CAS-ual Fridays challenge to make a card with 1 short side & 1 long side, figured it was a good one for me.  It's been awhile since I played along with PDCC, so I'm using those colors: plum, mustard, rose. My stamps are old ones by Hero Arts, so this is another entry for A Blog Named Hero's current challenge. Just for fun, I decided to make a miniature card--5x2.  The heart branch is stamped in Versafine Toffee after wiping the ink off the hearts.  Then the hearts were colored with 2 Memento markers & I stamped again using my positioner.  I punched 2 tiny circles, colored them with the same markers, attached clear Rain Dots & glued them for the embellishments.  Stickles Star Dust is added to the hearts & 3 scored lines finish it off.  I think this will go to the Card Drive, as a kid might get a kick out of the unusual size.  So glad you took time to come by.  I always look forward to reading your comments.  Have a wonderful week.

Hello Greta
Well it appears to me that you are going through a CAS phase, as you are creating these types of cards thick and fast at present. You certainly have the technique all sorted that is for sure, as this card is so long-ingly beautiful... sorry I meant lovingly. Ha
