I Love You Card
About this I Love You Card:
I made this card to with my new stamps by PTI and to try out the paper piecing technique which I have grown to love so much lately. This card can be made with limited supplies like some patterned paper, stamps and cardstock.
To make this I Love You Card...
- White textured cardstock
- Chair-ished stamp set by PTI and Simply you by Technique Tuesday
- 8x8 patterned paper pad by DCWV
- paper trimmer
- foam adhesive
- Black ink pad
- Start with an 8.5x11 sheet of cardstock and using a paper trimmer cut in half vertically to make it 4.25x11 and score in the middle and fold to get a standard size card 4.25 x 5.50.This is the base card .
- Layer different shades and hues and patterns to create an interesting design . This is where a patterned paper pad comes handy since all the papers are coordinated .
- For the center focal point, start by stamping the chairs , once on a seprate piece of white cardstock and again on different patterned paper, cut them out and adhere it to the stamped chairs on the white piece. Do the same with the lampshade . The cushions are on foam adhesive to give some depth, stamp and color the area rug under the chairs with markers.
- Stamp the sentiment. In this particular card I used a technique called selective inking where I inked part of a stamp to create the sentiment I needed. To do that you could either carefully ink part of a stamp with a small ink pad or markers or as I did use some tape to cover the portion of the stamp to be blocked out, ink the stamp , remove the tape and stamp.
- Finally draw the lines with black micro tip pen.
- Adhere this panel with foam adhesive to the base card and we are done.
