Thank you stopping by!
Cathy of http://cathyplus5.blogspot.com/ had this amazing card on her facebook account.
|Here's how I made my version of this card:|
|I cut out both sides on the pencil line. I used the cut piece to make the pocket for the apron. I swiped lagoon ink over the piece and then aded the zip strip from the top of the skyline paper. Pictured above the card is what the piece looked like before I colored it with lagoon. Then I put bronze shimmer tape down the middle to cover the fold and I glue around the edge of the piece to make a pocket and cut the sides even. I stamped the heart from the Sweet and Lovely stamp set that comes with Artbooking Cricut collection. |
I punched two holes in the top and tied a knot at the end of both sides of the cocoa ribbon in the back of the card. I also
scotch taped the ends down on the back so it would hold up better in the mail.
Here's the card in better lighting:
After I finished the card, I thought it needed something else. I added a pearl to the heart and then sentiment pulls out of the apron pocket. The edges were inked with a spongewith lagoon ink and so were the edges of the zip strip before glueing to pocket.
Here is the card with the sentiment hidden:
