Sealed with Love Celebrate Kisses
A nniversary card for my husband that is part of the RemARKably Creative Blog Tour for January. Uses Stampin' Up! products.
Cut card stock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Real Red Card Stock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Whisper White Card Stock
- 1-3/4" x 5-1/4" of scalloped white lines on red design of paper from Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack, try to orient the paper so the lines will be horizontal
Place the Whisper White rectangle into the Celebrations Duo Textured Impressions Embossing Folders folder that reads "celebrate." Make sure you can read the word "celebrate" and center it on the white rectangle from side to side so the top of the white rectangle is at the top of the folder. Place the folder with the card stock inside on top of a Cutting Pad on your Big Shot Platform at the lowest possible setting. Place another Cutting Pad on top of the folder and run through the Big Shot. These folders give you a debossed image.
Mount the wavy brushstroke image from the Sealed with Love Photopolymer Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Blushing Bride Ink Pad. Stamp the image over the left side of the debossed word. Re-ink the stamp and stamp it a couple more times on the right side of the word and the center bottom.
Mount the lips image from the Sealed with Love Photopolymer Set on Block A. Ink it up with the Real Red Ink Pad. Stamp it randomly on the debossed word several times. Remember to re-ink each time.
When you are happy with the stamping, adhere the strip of Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack paper to the bottom of the stamped white rectangle.
Cut a 6" piece of Real Red 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon. Lay the ribbon across the white/designer paper rectangle so it covers the seam between the card stock and the designer paper. Flip the white/designer paper rectangle over and fold the ends of the ribbons over. Adhere them in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive across the ends. Do not put adhesive under the ribbon on the front of the card or you won't be able to tie on the heart embellishments.
Peel the protective backing off the Tear & Tape Adhesive and add SNAIL Adhesive to the back of the white/designer paper rectangle. Flip it over and adhere it to the front of the Real Red card.
Cut a 9" piece of Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine. If there are kinks in the twine from being wrapped around the packaging card, you can remove the kinks by running a damp baby wipe or cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol down the length. Just pinch the wipe or cotton ball around one end of the twine and squeeze. Pull the twine through. Allow it to dry for a minute.
Pick out a small hollow heart and a large hollow heart from the Sending Love Embellishments. Tie the small hollow heart to the center of the Baker's Twine with a half knot. You can tease the threads of the Baker's Twine apart with your fingers so it will separate around the point inside the top of the heart if you wish. Now, tie the large hollow heart to the top of the small hollow heart with a half knot. Slide one end of the Baker's Twine under the ribbon on the right side of your card. Position the hearts so they are overlap the ribbon a little and tie them in place with a bow. Trim off excess Baker's Twine.
