Hello crafty friends! My card today, You’re My Type, is perfect for Valentine’s Day and also works for an anniversary or simply to tell someone “Love You” with hearts!
You’re My Type Card Base
Form 5 x 7-inch vertical fold card from white cardstock. Cut woodgrain paper to 4.5 x 6.25 inches and red cardstock strip to 0.5 x 4.5 inches
Use E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser to apply adhesive to the back of the woodgrain paper along the bottom and fasten the red strip so about a 0.125-inch margin is revealed on the front. Apply adhesive to the back with E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser and place the woodgrain panel to the card front.
Cut and Assemble Typewriter
Cut 2 pieces of black cardstock about 4.25 x 4.5 inches. Apply Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch to cover the back of one piece, peel the liner, and fasten to the back of the second black piece.
Designer Tip: I chose to cut the typewriter from a double layer of cardstock to make it stiff.
Put about a 1.25 x 3.5-inch piece of Adhesive Sheets 4x6in on a scrap of cardstock.
Use die cutting machine and typewriter die to cut shapes from a double layer of black cardstock. Leave the piece in place on the die. Trim scrap cardstock with Adhesive Sheet to fit behind typewriter keys, peel the liner and attach to the back of the keys area to keep keys in place.
Use a white paint marker to make all keys and space bar white. Use a silver pen to color the knob, return lever, point, and areas that will show through the top piece when put in place.
Cut Large Heart
From red cardstock, cut a large frame heart using a die and die cutting machine.
Cut a 2 x 3 inches piece of white cardstock and use black ink to stamp the verse on it. On a scrap of white cardstock, stamp Love You and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Trim close to words. From red cardstock, cut a mat slightly bigger and secure it to the back using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.
On a scrap of white cardstock, stamp 3 hearts using red ink. Cover hearts with red embossing glaze, remove excess and heat emboss with a heat tool. Fussy cut out each heart.
Assemble Typewriter with Heart
Use E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser to apply adhesive to the back of the typewriter, slide the verse into place, and press against the adhesive to secure.
Position the heart frame in place behind the typewriter and fasten using adhesive from the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.
Cut Crafty Foam Tape Black 108ft in two strips to fit across the typewriter and press in place.
Cut and apply 3D Foam Strips around the heart. Also, place pieces of 3D Foam Strips across the verse, and two pieces layered together at the top. Peel all liners and place the typewriter and heart on the card front.
Add Hearts and Love You
Peel off all liners, arrange, and place on the card front. Happy Valentine’s Day!
