Today, I've put a twist on Katina's Kiss CAS from yesterday's 14 Days of Love #7.

Use a Blushing Bride A2 card base.
Cut your background DSP 4 x 5-1/4

Cut a frame and a full mat from Blushing Bride using frame #1 and #2. You can position both in place to cut the frame or choose to cut the mat from #1 then center #2 die in place and run it through your diecutting machine again. 

Cut a #1 mat from Whisper White. 

Stamp the floral heart image with Blushing Bride in the center of the white mat. Then layer your shaker box. 

With your open frame FACE DOWN on your work surface, apply Snail Adhesive (104332 - $7.00) around the perimeter of the frame. You can also use Tear & Tape. 

Cut a piece of acetate a smidge smaller (1/16th of an inch) than your mat and place it on top of the mat. Cut strips of Foam Adhesive Strips (141825 - $8.00) and adhere them around the edge of the acetate base to form a frame. IMPORTANT: Make sure everything butts up against each other at the corners. You need a tight seal so you don't lose any of the goodies we're going to add.

With the paper backing still in place on the foam strip, us a fine paint brush, brush the inside edges of the foam strips. This will cover any tackiness from the inside so that your goodies don't stick. 

Next, add in sparkly, bling, beads, confetti. I chose some blush-toned micro beads, tiny pink heart and red lip confetti from my stash. BONUS! The Red Heart Lips will be included in my January Promo!

At this point, I recommend cutting a piece of cardstock a tad smaller than your opening and place it on top BEFORE removing the adhesive backing. Static cling will have some of your micro beads jumping up onto the adhesive and may prevent your backing from making a good seal.

Once all the adhesive backing is off, remove your paper card from the box and add the solid Blushing Bride mat.

Cut a grill-work heart from Real Red. 
Cut a Whisper White mat - 3/4" x 2-1/2"
Stamp your sentiment and place the two items in the bottom right corner of the card.
