I "heart" paper

Yesterday I stopped by a local "treasure" shop.  They had an ad in the local free paper that they had scrapbook supplies left from the store that closed several years ago.  I probably have more paper than I need but who could resist a deal - 3 for $1.  I picked up 42 sheets of a variety of things that I'm looking forward to using. 

Since I love printed paper so much, it's sometimes difficult for me to make cards for CAS blogs such as CAS-ual Fridays.  I love the look but since I'm not a stamper, it can be difficult to make things truly clean.  This week's challenge is

 
 
I knew right away what I could do.


I embosssed white cardstock with my hearts folder and trimmed it to 4" by 5 1/4".  I wrapped it with ribbon I bought on clearance after Valentine's Day last year.  The little tag is made from a die set and stamp from My Craft Spot.  The tag is attached with a brad and then the entire piece glued to a white base card.  Truly simple.
