Happy 2020

Hi there,

Happy New Year.  And to start the year, here is my first card for the year.  It is for a card swap, with the theme 2020.

Heartfelt Creations Booklet Frames Booklet Basics Italiana Riviera

Cardstock:  White, purple
Paper: Heartfelt Creations “Italiana Riviera”, Gold foil card
Dies: Heartfelt Creations: Booklet Frames die, Booklet Basics die, Ornamental Tags
Crafter’s Companion: Die’sire Classiques Only Words 1in Numbers & Punctuation
Other: Glue, Foam tape, Gold Marker Pen, Computer generated sentiment

To make this card, I cased a lovely card on the Heartfelt Creations blog site.

To make the easel base, I cut a piece of purple cardstock 7 x 10 1/2 “, then scored at 2 1/2, 5″‘, and 5 1/2”, and folded to make the easel base. I then cut a paper from the Italiana Riviera collection 4 7/8 x 6 7/8” and adhere to the lower part of the easel card with glue.

I used dies # 1 and #2 from the Booklet Basics set to cut two die cuts from the same piece of Italiana Riviera paper.  I used the gold marker around the edges of both of these die cuts. I glued the smaller die cut to the larger die cut, just along the centre, then add foam tape on either side to give some shape to the “pages”.

Using die #1 from the Booklet Frames set, I cut a piece from the white cardstock.  I then repeated the glue/foam tape step to adhere the “pages” to the frame.

I cut out a bookmark using the bookmark die from Booklet Basics from the purple cardstock, and adhered this to the front of the “book”.

I cut the numbers using the Die’sire Classiques Only Words 1in Numbers & Punctuation set from gold foil card, and glued them to the front of the book.

I adhered the book to the front of the card base, just gluing to the lower part of the front of the card base.

Heartfelt Creations Ornamental Tags Italiana Riviera

Using a tag from the Ornamental Tags set, I cut a piece of purple cardstock with the outer tag die.  I printed off the sentiment (font: Edwardian Script, font size 36, font colour: Gold [Red 212, Green 175, Blue 55]) on white cardstock,  and cut this out with the inner tag die.  I cut a second piece of white cardstock with the same inner tag die, and glued this under the sentiment, to give a little more depth.  I then glued this to the purple tag, and adhered this to the base of the card base with foam tape.

Bye for now,

Penny
