I Love You

Get all the major supplies needed to make this project with the Classic Card Bundle or you can order them separately.

Susan's Tip: I used black flock here, for great contrast and a soft texture. The black and white checked ribbon and the red flower with white brad repeat the colors in the papers and add even more contrast.

Instructions:

  1. Place your card with the fold at the left side. Cut a 4 3/4"x6 1/4" rectangle of the charcoal burlap paper, ink the edges, and glue it centered to the card front. Cut a 2 3/4" square window from the card front, centered 1 1/4" from the top. Ink outer edges of the card front and ink the window edges using a cotton swab.
  2. Glue a 4 3/4" length of black and white gingham ribbon across the card front along the bottom edge of the window. Zot a bow at the lower right corner of the window. Zot a small red flower with white brad over the center of the bow.
  3. Cut a 4 1/2"x1" red textured paper strip and glue it centered to a 4 3/4"x1 1/4" black textured strip. Attach the strip even with the bottom of the burlap paper on the card front. Use the glue pad to stamp a 2" swirl design on the center of the red strip, then add black flock. Lightly press the flock over the design, then shake off the excess. Repeat as needed. Add a 1" flocked swirl at each side of the 2" swirl.
  4. Inside the card: Cut a 2 3/4" red textured square and mat on black, leaving a 1/8" border. Stamp "I love you" plus a small heart, with the glue pad centered on the red square, then add flock. Allow it to dry. Glue a ribbon tab to the back of the square and attach it centered to the inside, so it shows through the window.
