Aperture Card with Self Laminating Pouches

Hi everyone, Christine here today.  Recently my parents celebrated their wedding anniversary and they both definitely deserved a handmade card. I am featuring the Self-Laminating Pouches – Card Small to give the card an interesting twist.

I went through some old photographs and found one when they were in their teens together in the 1950’s.  To preserve the photo I decided one of the Self-Laminating Pouches – Card Small would be perfect and also use it as an aperture for my window card.

To create the aperture I die cut a square ensuring my Self-Laminating Pouches – Card Small would fit neatly behind. It is possible to cut an additional piece of card to create a double mount.

To affix the laminating pouch I selected E-Z Squares Refillable Dispenser.  NOTE: dispenser is refillable to match ANY of the other E-Z adhesive refills  – they are all interchangeable. LOVE!  To conceal the reverse of the laminating pouch inside your card affix into place another piece of card.

I gathered together some additional die cuts to decorate the card front and affixed the heart with 3D Foam Squares, White – Regular.

I kept the color scheme white with just a touch of silver.
