I’m sure that by now, you have seen the CTMH book, with all the fun products that we have, just teasing us with fun, spring papers! I know many of us are very much in the middle of winter weather, right now!
Today, over at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog, we were challenged to CASE something from the book, but we were able to put our own twist onto the project. So, I thought I might have some fun with it!
So, I decided to go with one of the cards from the I Heart Us Card workshop (which is actually called Workshops Your Way® Lucky Friendship Cardmaking Kit) I went with this for a couple of reasons. 1. I like the paper. 2. It was an easy card design 3. I wanted to show that you can use those card designs (which come with a cutting diagram!) with any other papers and/or stamps, as well!
So, I started with the card design as shown, using the I Heart Us papers. It does call for black glitter paper, but I decided to stick with the sapphire cardstock that I used for the stripe down the middle.
I then decided to use the Feels Like Home paper pack (well, just two designs from the pack). Like with the first card, I decided to stick with the cardstock for the strip and the sentiment mat, in this case, Charcoal cardstock. Again, stamped with Archival Black Ink and colored with the watercolor pencils and small water brush.
I have two secrets to put cards like this together. The first is to flip the papers over to the back side, and use bits of washi tape to hold all the pieces together. Then I will essentially be gluing just ‘one’ piece of cardstock to the front of the card base. The second is to use liquid glass to attach said ‘one piece’ to the card. This allows for some wiggle room, to make sure that it is lined up straight and has even borders all around. These two secrets help make this card design SUPER easy to put together!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope that I have inspired you to case something out of the book! I would love to see what you create with this in mind!
Remember to stop over at the H2H challenge blog to see some other fun examples, and to join in on the challenge!
