CASology Week #62 - Arrow

This week's Cue Card is Arrow.  I just happened to receive "happy mail"  the other day and it included a background stamp from Hero Arts called Vertical Arrows.  I had watched a video by Jennifer McGuire where she stamped the background and cut the pieces apart and then inked them the colors she wanted.  Here is my version of that technique.  I stamped the background on white cardstock and cut the rows apart.  I inked each strip with two Distress ink colors.  I added three strips vertically to a white card base, and three strips horizontally.  I stamped my greeting on white cardstock that had been cut with a Spellbinders Standard Circle die.  I made another circle in a size larger with GKD Blue Raspberry cardstock and attached the two together.  I added the circles to the card base with 1/4" pop dots.  I made four red hearts with a Marvy heart punch and added them to the card.
