Hi, Connie here with an “I Love Us” wedding card using pattern paper by Simple Stories and my favorite product, Crafty Foam Tape. I use it on everything I create. I love to adhere to the card front when attaching to the card base. It leaves such a clean look with some dimension.
As you can tell I put a little “messy” on it. You can keep it clean or distress it, either way, you will come away with a great-looking card.
I started this card project by laying out products that I wanted to create with. Most of the time that is my starting place. I do all the prep work like trimming the tags, punching tag holes, and sizing paper. I am then ready to design.
Assembling the Card
- 1. I used a stamp border to add a faux stitch line around the card front. The lines were masked off to get a clean stitch line, no over stamping.
2. I then added the Crafty Foam Tape 108′ to the back of the card front and adhered to the card base.
3. I used the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser to adhere the brown tag and then overlapped the grey tag using the Crafty Foam Tape 108′ to add dimension to the card front.
4. The E-Z Runner Hearts Refillable Dispenser was used with Perfect Pearls to create a small heart above the sticker. The embellishments were added using 3D Foam Squares White Mix and 3D Foam Strips White (another favorite adhesive of mine) to the card front. I distressed the edges using acrylic beige and black paint.
I hope you enjoy making cards and giving them to friends and family!
