Now, let me side-track you for a minute or three to share my clean and simple Valentine’s Day card featuring Classic Crest Solar White cardstock along with Pop-Tone Razzleberry cardstock and a few rolls of washi tape! This is a super simple design that came together pretty quickly!

I paired some new Valentine washi tape with some older washi tape that I had in my stash to create the diagonal panel on this card, and used Pop-Tone Razzleberry cardstock for the die cut and punched hearts.

Here is a quick tutorial showing you my process for making this awesome CAS card. I started by cutting a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock. I also cut an angled panel for the front (wide enough for four strips of washi tape), an inside panel and a narrow strip (wide enough for one strip of washi tape) for the inside panel, all from Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock. And I die cut two hearts from Pop-Tone Razzleberry cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment in pink ink in the lower right corner of the card base, adhered the angled panel, and then adhered the die cut hearts to the angled panel. I punched six tiny hearts from a scrap of the Pop-Tone Razzleberry cardstock and colored three of them with a pink alcohol marker to make them just a tad darker than the cardstock. I adhered a tiny punched heart to the center of the two die cut hearts and randomly placed three in the background.

For the inside, I adhered the washi tape strip to the narrow strip of cardstock, stamped the sentiment in pink ink and adhered two tiny punched hearts.
