More Cards from Decorative Paper
I selected a purple card that coordinated. I cut the piece of decorative paper to leave a small border of card color. I printed the black small letters onto a quarter sheet of white card stock with registration marks to align when I die cut. Once, printed I aligned the marks with the edges of the Sizzix Happy Phrase die and cut the word Happy. I trimmed the white greeting layer to 3.75 x 5.25 inches and used a corner punch on all corners to add a bit of interest. I glued the decorative paper to the card and then applied 3D foam tape to quite few areas on the greeting to keep the pieces in place. The middle pieces in the H the middle piece in the Y. I then added the holes for the a and the ps with 3D foam tape as well. It`s a bit tedious but I like the effect. I added 3 purple sequins in the top right hand corner for a bit of bling. These are held in place with Zots.
I made a couple of baby cards with a onesie cut with the Cricut machine and the Wrap It Up cartridge. I cut them at 2.25 inches from white card stock. I cut the acrylic paint paste paper to leave a small border of navy card. I added a piece of white lace into which I strung a piece of dark blue 1/8 inche satin ribbon. The ends were tucked behind the decorative paper and taped down. This layer was then adhered to the card front. I added a shorter piece of ribbon in the bottom right hand corner tied in a knot onto the piece in the lace. I added a knot bow onto the onesie which is held in place with a Zot.
I made a similar card with pink acrylic paint paper. This time I chose the landscape orientation to change it up a bit. I cut a piece of white card stock and embossed it with the De`vine Swirls folder from Cuttlebug. I added a piece of link pink satin ribbon wrapped over it with the ends taped to the back. This layer was then adhered to the card front. I added a shorter length of the same ribbon and tied it in a knot on the longer piece and trimmed the ends. I added a knot bow again to the onesie.
