The Set I am revealing today is called Everlasting Love
This is such a wonderful set for many card making needs: Wedding, Thinking of You's, Get Wells, Baptism and Encouragment! During the month I am going to bring you a card I've made with each verse and the elements!
Todays' card I am using the beautiful set of wings and the long time symbol of love, the locket. Wouldn't this make a wonderful valentine too?
I will show you the card and then a tutorial on how I heat embossed plan ole wrapping paper!
mailable dimension and texture!
First I brought up my image on my standard 4.25" x 6" "canvas" I created using publisher, you can also use word. I do this because I do a lot of digitals and it makes it very easy to create my image in the correct scale for my card.
then I printed it on a piece of silver wrapping paper that I cut to a 5x6 size. I ran it throught the printer,
Waiting for it to come out reminded me of using my easy bake oven as a kid!!
Working very quickly, I got the heat embossing powder right on it!
I had originally thought to use vellum for the wings - that didn't work so well!
Next I fussy cut the wings and backed it on heavy card stock,
I also printed my sentiment out and with a little glue added glitter on the edge of the verse:
I picked out a cut frame from my stash - I used a digital cutter to make this but you can also use your favorite die! I added and insert to the center to give this a window-ish look.
Using distress inks for just the right pop of color
all assembled and ready to mail!
