Today I have a card to share with you. I made this using a piece of cardstock which I cut to be 6 inches x 12 inches. I scored it at the 2 inch, and 4 inch mark. The last 8 inches I folded in half. The card stands up and folds out, I cut up strips of my favorite Graphic 45 Print Papers. The collection I used is there New Olde Curiosity shoppe. I made two tags which hang of the card. One is on each of the 4 inch pieces. I am loving my MyStik Permanent Strips Dispenser
The MyStik Permanent Strips Dispenser makes quick work of any project. I wanted to use photo corners on my project. They are one of my favorite products. Although I mostly use black one, I wanted to use blue ones on my card. I love the fact that the Scrapbook Adhesives make theirs out of paper ones. The Photo Corners-Classic Style, White are perfect for inking. The fact that they are white means I can ink them blue, it wasn’t quite the shaded I wanted, so I inked them again lightly with a black ink pad, then over the top again with the blue. The inks blended beautiful on the paper corners.
I chose some paper flowers to match my print papers and layered them together. The DODZ Medium are great to use for this. Glue can be messy to work with, it can get every where and soak through the paper flowers. Using a glue dot means no glue where you don’t want it to be and no dark stains. I wanted to have a glitter center for my flower. I used a DODZ and just tipped the glitter onto it and lightly blew the excess off.
I used a chipboard frame from Imaginarium Designs, which I backed with a piece of print paper, added my flower and place the finished piece on the front of my card using 3D Foam Squares-Black Variety Pack. These squares are perfect for when you want to raise up an embellishment and very easy to use. I love the fact that you get both sizes in one pack. The small ones are my favorite.
For the back of the card I used a chipboard phase from Imaginarium Designs inked black.
The card is big enough to include a photo or special message, you could add more tags and turn it into a mini book.
thanks for Looking
