So let’s check out today’s project. Did you see the video? If not, just go here to watch it. Here are the measurements:
- Card base in Rich Razzleberry cardstock cut at 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
- Painted with Love Specialty DSP cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″
- Powder Pink cardstock layer cut at 7″ x 3 3/4″, scored at 3 3/4″
- Painted with Love Specialty DSP cut at 3 1/4″ x 3″
- Ribbon from the February Paper Pumpkin kit cut at about 16″
- Rich Razzleberry cardstock cut with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits
- Whisper White cardstock cut with the next smaller Sweet & Sassy Framelits
Since this is a flat card base, just adhere the first layer of DSP. I then stamped the sentiment from the February Paper Pumpkin Kit in Rich Razzleberry ink and added the XOXO in Powder Pink ink onto the Whisper White heart. Adhere the two hearts together and then add to the inside of the Powder Pink layer. (When you cut and score this piece, it will open to the top of the card base.)
Once you’ve adhered the heart, adhere the next piece of DSP to the front of the Powder Pink layer. I then added a vellum heart to the DSP using a Mini Glue Dot. The vellum heart was also part of the February kit. Glue dots seem to be the best for adhering vellum. Then run a small strip of adhesive to the back to hold down your ribbon, close the “card”, wrap the ribbon around and tie it in a bow, then adhere it to the card base. Then I added a couple of gold Metallic Enamel Shapes to highlight the gold foil in the DSP and voila! You’re done! Isn’t that adorable?!? I hope you like it as much as I do.
If you would like to order any of the product used today, just head over to my online store to place your order. You won’t be able to order the Paper Pumpkin kit as it shipped out earlier this month.
