Thinking of You
By Susan Cobb
Designer's Tip: I cut a 6" round paper lace doily in half to create a pretty lacy edge beneath the bottom half of the Papier Tole embellishment. I used the second piece to decorate the inside.
- Place your card with the fold at the top. Cover the card front with aqua/pink/lime tiles paper. Now cover the top 2" of the card with lime/white gingham paper. Cut a lace paper doily in half and place centered on the card, with the cut edge even with the seam of the two papers. Glue in place. Glue ribbon across the top edge of the doily.
- Punch out the papier tole design images and assemble together with foam tape. Glue centered over the card, overlapping the doily. Back two wide border stickers with pink/white dotted paper and trim close to the edges. Foam tape to left and right sides of the card, even with the edges.
- Write or computer print "thinking of you" on aqua cardstock. Add the lacy rectangle frame sticker centered over the words, then trim around the edges. Mat on lime with 1/16" borders. Glue/foam tape the framed words and heart (extra art) to the lower right side of the card. Add a corner sticker to the top of the Papier Tole embellishment. Add tiny dot stickers ("innies") for aqua flower centers. Zot acrylic flowers as shown. Add Stickles to centers of the flowers and to embellish the border stickers. Zot ribbon bow near the words.
- Write or computer print "Hope you're having a wonderful day" on aqua cardstock. Place the lacy frame sticker around the words so the words are centered inside the frame. Trim edges evenly around the sticker. Glue framed words to the second half of the lace doily so the lace shows at the bottom. Trim sides evenly with the aqua cardstock. Mat on lime/white gingham paper with 1/4" borders. Glue to aqua/pink/lime tiles paper with 1/4" borders. Glue centered to the inside. Glue heart (extra art) overlapping the lower right edge of the sticker frame. Zot acrylic flowers as shown. Add Stickles to the flower centers and let dry. Zot knotted ribbon to lower left edge of frame sticker.
