So let's get started....
What I used:
· Love Bites patterned paper & elements sheet printed on cardstock
· Glue or tape runner
· Sequins and liquid adhesive
· Love bites patterned paper printed on Vellum
· Plain black cardstock
· A rectangle die (I used Lawn Fawn's stitched rectangles)
First, I started with 2 black card bases, measuring 5 3/4 x 9 inches folded in half.
One of my cards will be top folded and the other will be folded at the left.
I used the rectangle die to cut my patterned paper for the front panel of the card.
Then I attached it with my tape runner and began to decorate the front. I used a strip of vellum that I oriented on the right side of the card and adhered it using a small amount of tape runner at the top and bottom. This prevents the adhesive from being noticeably seen through the vellum.
I really love layering patterns with printed vellum, I love the muted look a plain piece of vellum gives. The Love Bites collection is quite versatile and it gives a lot of options for the look.
Next I applied the heart shaped suckers from the element sheet on top of the vellum and added some glitter with a wink of stella clear glitter pen. Then I layered black and white washi and added the sentiment, "sucker for love." I finished it off with sequins and it's done! It's a very simple card to assemble and looks really cute.
I plan on writing in mine with a white gel pen because I love the overall look. Otherwise, you can add a plain panel of white cardstock to the inside of the card and write with a black pen or stamp out your sentiment.
Here's the other card I created on the same premise. This card is folded at the left side for a vertical oriented card. I used the rectangle die to create the panel and I layered some paper and elements from the Love Bites element sheet. Both cards are very quick and simple to create.
That's all for now. Happy February 1st, everyone!
