Something CAS for a change

Hello! :) Can you believe we are in the last days on January?? Where did this month go?! O.o 

You know what comes with Fabruary, right? Valentine's day! :) A day on which you can eat lots of chocolate without feeling guilty (I mean, it would be just rude not to eat that yummy chocolate you get from your hubby/bf, right?). He he. My sweetie loves chocolate and that's why I'm giving him (one of) his favourite chocolate bars for Valentine's this year. He will get his chocolate neatly packed in a decorated paper bag that I just made. It's a very simple one (faaaar from my usual style), but you can't really decorate men's gift with lots of flowers and butterflies etc., can you?

So, here's what I made ...


See, I told you it's very, very CAS. I wanted the sentiment to be in the center of attention on this bag. The sentiment "love" is a new die from Whimsy stamps - you can buy it here. I die cut the sentiment from the white cardstock which I then embossed and glued on top of the red cardstock. I made sure I didn't lose any of the small parts of the die cut sentiment so I could spell the word love as it's supposed to look. Then I just added two small heart shaped crystals and some  heart ribbon from Crafty riboons to decorate the front.


This is how the back looks like. As you can see I kept that very simple as well. I just used used 2 brads and some twine to make a closure and ome corner die cuts that I cut with Whimy corner dies set. The decorative border was made with my border punch.

Have you started working on your Valentine's day projects yet?

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs! xx

    1. Oh my girl, I think I am still faaaar from mastering the CAS. lol It's definitely a style I have most problems with and which I don't do often. You are totally right - it WAS killing me to leave all that space blank. I think I'll stay with my "fully loaded" cards/projects in the future. ;)
      Hugs! xx

  6. Čudovita embalaža in res si se potrudila za dragega - napram drugim tvojim bogato okrašenim izdelkom je to res CAS verzija :). Všečno, zelo všečno!

    1. A verjameš, da sem imela s tem veliko več dela kot s tistimi bogato okrašenimi stvarmi? Kar ni in ni mi šlo skupaj, da bi pustila tako prazno.
