Thinking About You

Inspiration

Here's my second design team project for Heartfelt Creations this week. I'm using the Old English Garden Collection stamps. I think the sentiments are really pretty, and I'm really enjoying creating cards with them. The other thing I did on this card that's new will just amaze anyone who knows me - I actually set up my sewing machine and stitched on the card!

Instructions

BASE CARD

Start with a piece of dark pink card stock measuring 5 1/2" x 11". Score it at 5 1/2", and fold. Use a corner rounder to round all 4 corners. Randomly stamp the flower swirl in dark pink ink all over the card front.

MAT

Cut a piece of light green card stock measuring 4" x 4 1/4". Randomly stamp the broken cinder block background in light green ink all over the green card stock. Cut a piece of adhesive fabric paper measuring 4 1/4" x 5". Adhere the green piece to the front of the fabric paper to hold it in place. Then sew a dark pink line around three sides of the mats. Remove the adhesive from the back of the fabric paper, and adhere it to the card front, leaving space at the top of the card for the button.

BUTTON

Tie a 3-loop bow using pink jute, leaving long ends. Glue the bow to the front of a dark pink button, then glue the button just above the edge of the fabric paper mat on the card front. Tape the two ends of the bow onto the green mat, so that they will look like the teacup image is hanging from them.

IMAGE

Stamp the medium teacup and handle on white card stock. Cut these out using the matching dies. Color with COPIC markers. I used these colors:

  • Leaves: YG93
  • Flowers: R56, R59, Y04
  • Cup: C0, R81

Cut/emboss a lacy circle using dark pink card stock. Mount the circle onto the green mat using foam squares, then add the teacup and handle onto the circle using foam squares.

SENTIMENT

Stamp the sentiment in dark pink ink on white card stock, then trim closely. Mount on the card front in the lower right corner.

Thanks for stopping by!
