CAS Hello

Kids had another snow day earlier this week so here is my CAS card (I prefer to craft alone and in peace).  You could say that my snowflake embossed background was inspired!  :)  I wanted to make a card to a friend near Valentine's Day so I used some Pucker Me Pink craft sheet from Add A Little Dazzle.  I just think pink is friendlier than red.  The hearts were two of the smaller dies from ODBD Ornate Hearts Dies and the Simon Says Stamps hello word die was cut from metallic silver card stock.

I had mentioned earlier that cutting the craft metal sheets were so much easier if I glued them onto card stock first.  I had run out of my Crystal Effects and had purchased some Tombow Mono Aqua Glue a while back.  I LOVE my Tombow glue runners and buy them in bulk (www.Officesupply.com is the cheapest I've found) but I was really disappointed with this liquid glue.  After I had die cut the heart, the craft metal sheet just popped right off the card stock - which now had a shiny sheen of dry glue on there.  The Scor-tape, Crystal Effects, and glue runner all worked much better.  Just thought I'd share my experience!
