Glittering Three Ingredient CAS Cards

The word "glitter" is usually NOT part of the Clean and Simple style, but CutCardStock Glitter papers made these CAS cards possible.  What would you use these notecards for?  I'm thinking Thank You notes, but an encouraging Thinking-Of-You would be just as appropriate, or even a super simple Mother's Day card. 

These cards use three basic ingredients:
1.  white cardstock, cut to the size of card you want.  ANY color cardstock would be great--if you have wedding or graduation thank you notes in mind, these could easily coordinate with your wedding or school colors. 

2.  gold hearts cut from CutCardStock's Gold Glitter text weight paper, which was perfect to shoot through my Cricut to make multiple hearts, but hand cut hearts would be just as fine.

3.  various vintage text papers, like pages from a dictionary, for the trim--you could use papers from an unwanted book or sheet music, or ribbons or patterned paper.

To facilitate making several cards at once, I like to pre-cut everything, and have it all ready to go.  Double sided tape runner makes assembling these cards even easier!
This gold paper has a fine, no-flake, no mess finish to it, almost like a fabric finish, and it's a beautiful vintage-ish color.  When I tell you "no mess," I mean it--I TRIED to get glitter on my hands, and it all stayed on the paper.  That was pretty amazing to me!
