Designer Tip- You can find items to use in your creating in unexpected places. I found a large piece and circle piece of white corrugated paper lining a tin of Pepperidge Farms cookies( Pirouette cookies) . The cookies were in their own packaging, and the tin was lined with this paper. I didn't even have to cut the circle shape, it was already precut!




Miss you card

1. Cut two papers into strips and add them vertically to card using Perma Tac adhesive. Cut off diecut edge of pink paper, then adhere scalloped part between two papers.
2. Paper pierce faux stitched lines, and then use pen to make fake thread lines.
3. Adhere corrugated circle piece to left edge, cutting off overlap.
4. Thread twine onto large button, tie bow and adhere with Adhesive Squares.
5. Adhere fabric stickers and accordion pleat stickers to card.



Love Potion No. 3 card


1. Adhere strips of papers horizontally across card, including punched pink scallop strip.
2. Add UcutIt foam to back of ruler sticker and adhere to top 1/3 of card.
3. Cut scallop circle with Cricut Imagine machine, then emboss with Cuttlebug and Script embossing folder, adhere over sticker, adding pieces of UCutIt foam to part of circle not under ruler sticker.
4. Adhere glitter stickers to circle.
5. Tie bows under buttons with twine, adhere to each end of ruler sticker.
6. Cut flower piece from patterned paper, carefully crumple piece, then adhere to card with Adhesive Squares, add glitter glue to leaf parts of paper piece.
7. Tie bow with seam binding and adhere pearl to center.




For you card

1. Cut diecut scallop from paper, adhere to bottom part of card, then add paper strips to card.
2. Cut another diecut edge from paper, add UCutIt foam to paper, then adhere across bottom of card as shown.
3. Tie bows with twine under buttons and adhere with Adhesive Squares to each end of diecut strip.
4. Cut square of paper, then add UCutIt foam to back, also adding small mini clothes pins to top ends of square.
5. Loop twine under one clothes pin and add pearl to pin as well.
