Clean and Simple Hearts

I'm still trying to learn Clean and Simple cardmaking. My last one needed more white space, so I'm taking the challenges at I Brake for Challenges to make a "clean and simple"card and at CAS-ual Fridays to do the same plus chipboard. I used a stylus to emboss two lines between which I stamped and heat embossed the heart border. By impressing the two lines first, I can keep my hearts going across the page without slanting since I had to stamp the border twice and couldn't see the Versamark that well. I tied a simple strip of red gingham above the embossed line and attached a chipboard heart that was pre-embossed. I simply rubbed it on my CTMH Holiday Red inkpad and wiped excess ink off of the design with a kleenex. Talk about simple! Quick, too!

Happy red and white gingham ribbon and a parade of equally happy little hearts make for an adorable CAS card! Great job! The chipboard heart is elegant!
