Hello and happy Monday! Today I have a card that I CASE'd from the SCS gallery. I just fell in love with the simplicity of the card when I saw it; I knew I had to try and replicate it. I thought it was really classy and that it was easily adaptable to any occasion. I did tweak the card by changing the definition used, and I also used a different color of crystals for embellishment.

The definition was stamped on vellum. To avoid the appearance of glue behind the vellum, I left the edges a bit long and folded them over the white panel and adhered them into place before adhering it to the black panel. After adhering the black panel to the card, I placed a small amount of glue on the heart before sliding it into place. The crystals are Swarovski flatbacks in "Rose". I really love these; the have such a rich sparkle. I adhere them with either SU! Crystal Effects or Mono Multi (green lid). I know a lot of people prefer the crystals that come with sticky on them; what do you prefer?
