Valentine's card 2014

I'm not sure whether I've bent the rules too much with this card or not!

Less Is More's challenge this week is an "anything goes" one layer card. Well this doesn't look like one layer, but it IS. I cut the heart out of the kraft card and then cut another one out of red card. I embossed both, and fitted the red part into the kraft part - still one layer. Well OK, there may be a bit of tape on the back holding them together, but that doesn't count, does it? Pretty please?!

I also hope that it is not too busy for a CAS card. I think it still counts as clean and simple even though it it covered, because the embossing and inking is quite subtle and plain. Actually this photo makes the inking stand out more than it does in the cold, grey, miserable half-light of a flooded British February afternoon.

On that hope, I'm entering it into CASology's "bold" challenge for the bright red, Cute Card Thursday's "clever cutting", and Simon Says Stamp's "kraft", and Papertake Weekly's "heart" challenges.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
