Card Connection : 1.15.13

BasicGrey Card Connection

I love working with the Fiction collection 12×12 paper pad. The papers are wonderful for generic cards and can be used for any occasion. This is the time of the year where I find myself making many gift cards. I decided that the clock and key stamps were perfect because they are timeless and symbolic in many ways.

It’s so rewarding to turn stamped images into embellishments, they weight less, cost less and I think they stand out more on your projects than your average metal ones.

I selected three papers to work with.The paper on top looks nice and layered. I wanted to bring that layering to life.

I cut the torn design on the paper and added distress ink. Set aside

Proceed to stamp the clock in Frayed Burlap on the leftover green part of the paper. Notice I randomly stamped the clock for more interest. Set aside.

Stamp the clock on some scrap paper. It’s pretty easy to cut around the loop on top of the clock if you cut through it. When you apply glossy accents you are repairing where you cut.

Color with any markers. I used some Copics.

Apply the glossy accents and give it several hours to dry. (I cut though the key hole as well like I did on the clock)

Prepare your gift card bases. Round the edges and distress the edges. This small detail is worth the extra effort in my book.

GLUE BOTH OF THESE PATTERNS ON EACH OTHER SO YOU HAVE A PRETTY FRONT AND BACK. this also gives your card holder more stability.

Sew or glue the pieces together leaving a margin to insert your gift card. I like the random sewing for a twist.

Glue the card holder onto the strip of cut card stock. score and fold this is a great way to present cash showing the recipient that they are worth some extra effort.

Cut a strip of paper and add a bit more distressing. Score, fold and wrap the strip of paper around the back taping it. Slide it so that the strip of paper is off center.

Kathy R 12

Add some pop dots to the backs of the key and clock to hold them in place BEFORE you thread your ribbon.

You can add a sentiment anywhere if you feel the need but, I liked it simple.

I hope you take the time to create some embellishments. Thank you for your interest.
