Valentine's card that features a blingy heart, seam binding and a laser printed greeting

Another Valentine's card!!  I used a fun background from Melstampz which I printed a while back, trimmed to size and mounted to a black card.  I added a length of dark pink seam binding adhering the ends to the inside of my card using double sided tape.  I created a layered heart focal element using a glittered heart, a silver heart punchie (SU) and a little darker teal heart die cut (CB).  After gluing them all together I mounted this large element to my card using 3D foam tape overlapping the seam binding.  I added a little laser printed greeting just to the left below the heart.                Therese

Exchange cards that feature dimensional paint, Mud Maven birthday greetings and a bit of bling

I created these cards for my card exchange this month!!  I chose large yellow envelopes and created white cards to fit.  I cut two light weight yellow cardstock layers one for each card.  I dug through my scrapbook paper stash and found these two papers that I liked and coordinated well with the yellow layers I had created.  I trimmed an opening in each one to accommodate my large birthday greeting (Mud Maven) which was laser printed onto white cardstock and trimmed.  I ran my tracing wheel all over them for a bit more texture.  I adhered my decorative papers to the yellow layers which resulted in most of the tracing wheel texture fading away and added a piece ribbon to each of them before adhering these large layers to my white card fronts.  I watercoloured my greetings, added clear glitter using a Stardust gel pen and then added clear dimensional paint to the stars.  Once they were dry, I mounted them to the fronts of my cards using 3D foam tape.  I thought they still needed a bit of something so I added a wavy border around the greetings using gel pens.  That was better!!  A bit of bling on the ribbon and I was done!!  They will be off to my swap partners tomorrow as today at -35C and I have decided to stay inside!!         Therese
