Blank Note cards with envelopes. Here I use a set of 3 from my stash.
Matte Medium or any paper glue
Images cut from Sabor Amor paper line
Spray Mists in 2 or 3 different colors
Stencil or mask
Stick on embellishments
Metallic Rub on wax
**Embossed metal - I cut heart shapes from ones in my stash, you could either omit this step, or just use paint, glitter or even a clear gloss to make the hearts pop.
My usual starting process. You can see below, I ended up using a larger stencil so I could cover all the note cards and envelopes in one step.
Here I have placed all 3 note cards and envelopes under the 12 x 12 stencil I selected.
I start by lightly spraying each color in turn. I start out with the pink, add the teal and then dry. I put the white as a splatter pattern on top of that. Feel free to get creative with color here.
Next I add a bit more spray, in the same colors, to give them more intensity.
Here is a stash of pre-embossed thin metal. I just cut some free hand heart shapes out to fit into the center of my designs, then I dripped alcohol ink on top in coordinating colors.
Chose my images from paper. Now to fussy- cut each one out.
First I add some tissue papers in coordinating colors. I just ripped some pieces of blue and hot pink tissue and applied one random piece of each color over sprayed pattern. Then I glue on my image. At this time, I add the washi tape to the edge of the card.
Here I am putting on the glue in the center of the image, a bit thicker, so it will hold the metal piece securely. Once I have the metal bit in place, I go over the entire image again, with the glue (matt medium).
I am using the metallic rub on wax to add a bit more of the metal look to the edge of the card. No, I did not sew the cards, they actually came with that sewn accent.
Add glitz in the form of a stick on gem and Stickles glitter and cut off any tissue paper overage and then you are done!
Thanks for looking and I hope you feel free to play and make some cards of your own!
