Stitched Envelope & Cloudline
by Candice Crawford
Candice here poppin' in to share with you a cute Valentine's Card using the new stitched envelope die, the new stitched cloud line die and new Valentine's Fun stamp set from our January release.
This card is super cute and you guess it...quite simple to make. To create this card you will need a 4.25 inch by 5.5 inch piece of white card stock that you will color with some Tumbled Glass distress ink. Next take you Double Stitched rectangle frame die and die cut your tumbled glass colored yardstick with the frame die.
Now assemble both the frame and the center cutout to your white A2 sized cardbase. When you assemble the die cut panels to your card base, be sure to leave about a .25 inch white order around your distress ink panel.
Next, take a scrap piece of white cardstock and die cut the cloud border using the new stitched cloudline die. Then stamp the sentiment "Love is in the Air" from the new Valentine's Fun stamp set onto your cloud border die cut with some versa fine only black ink.
Now with a scrap piece of kraft cardstock, die cut the stitched envelope using the new stitched envelope die. With a scrap strip of red cardstock, die cut the stitched red hearts from the splendid stitched heart die. In place of the splendid stitched heart die, you can also use the new Petite stitched hearts die.
With all of your die cuts pieces cut out, you are now ready to assemble your card. First adhere your stitched cloud border strip to the bottom of your distress inked card front.
Next assemble your stitched envelope with your small bit of your favorite liquid or tape runner adhesive. Be sure to only secure two sides of your envelope and to leave the top portion open for your heart pieces. Once your envelope is assembled, adhere the envelope to your card front with some adhesive foam tape. My favorite is the 3M brand.
Now take your stitched cut hearts and arrange them in a cluster both inside and outside of the envelope. Pop up a few of the hearts with some foam tape for added dimension. Viola! your card is done. For a bit of sparkle and shine, you can brush on some wink of stella glitter brush pen to your stitched hearts.
I just adore this card and all the stitching. I hope today's card tutorial has inspired you to either case my exact design or create you own version of the card using the same dies from the new release. Thanks for joining me today. Until next time... happy crafting!
