Hero Arts Everyday Sayings CL342
"Hi there" is a Hero Arts stamp too, but it fell out of its pack so I don't know which clear set
Pearls colored with Copic markers B79 & YG09
Gold metallic twine & I have no idea where I got this.
I found this technique on Anne Gaal's blog
so you can follow along on the video, but I wanted to write it down so I have the sizes and instructions always with me.
Instructions to make this card.
Size Stamped panel dimensions Bottom panel dimensions
Smallest 2” X 3 ¼” 2 ¼” X 3 1/2 “
Middle 3” X 4 ¼” 3 ¼” X 4 1/2”
Largest 4” X 5 ¼” 8 ½” X 5 ½” BASE
All Right Ladies, Start your Engines… oops… cutting. Cut out all the sizes listed above. We’ll call the panels that are going to be what I think of as the “top” panels Panel “A”s and the bottom panels (like the panel that becomes the notecard itself) Panel “B”s.
Fold Panel "B" (base) in half and now you have your note card ready.
Take all the panel “A” s and tape with Removable tape, largest on the bottom and smallest on the top. On the smallest panel (A) you may wish to stamp a sentiment first and then start stamping. Start in the center and work your way around the edges, using a lighter ink because this is your stamped background. You can use a background, script, or other stamp for background. Then stamp with a darker ink using a smaller image, like a flower, butterfly or other focal image on the panels "A", as you prefer. When satisfied, stop and pull the panels apart. Take off the removable tape.
Starting with the smallest panel, layer the smallest panels “A” and “B” together, next layer the middle panels “A” and “B” together. NOW, make sure the pieces are not upside down when you layer 1st and 2nd sets. Attach the 2 “A/B” panels, smallest on top of middle panels. Add embellishments like buttons, flowers, pearls & twine (32 inches wraps 3 times around the top panels). To wrap twine, hold twine to left side (for right-handers), starting in front and wrap 3 times. You can thread a button or tag with the twine. Tie and make bow. Trim twine tails on bow.
Put dimensional on the bottom of the top "A" panel section and layer to bottom panel.
You are finished.
