I'm trying to work ahead to Valentine's Day right now, so I made this CAS love card to feature this wonderful sentiment. However, after the school shooting in Connecticut last week, this card took on an entirely different significance for me. Now I see this card as a reminder to hold onto those we love and never take them for granted, because each moment with them is a gift.
I started with a base of black card stock and covered the front with patterned paper. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black on white card stock and adhered it to a piece of black card stock. I die cut a scalloped border from white card stock, then adhered the sentiment panel and border to the card front. I added some shimmer spray to the sentiment panel to soften the black ink a bit and add some sparkle. This card is quick and easy, but its message is powerful.
