In the spirit of Valentines Day past, I decided to create a card incorporating red and white. I made a graphic but fun Congratulations Card. Check out the pictures below!
I used gray cardstock cut into 4.25 x 11″ and folded in half as the card base. I then cut a piece of patterned paper from Heidi Swapp Hello Beautiful paper pad to 4 by 5.25 inches and adhered this to the front of the card base, leaving an even gray edge around it and using my bone folder to remove any air bubbles.
I heat embossed congratulations on a sheet of vellum using ZING Black embossing powder and cut it into a banner shape,placing a similarly cut piece of black cardstock behind the vellum sheet to add depth. To adhere the vellum you must ensure that small drops of glue are placed directly behind the embossed words as the glue will show through the pure vellum as this paper is slightly transparent.
I attached the Congratulations sentiment to my card using foam tape and added some red sequins from Jillibean and red cork hearts cut from DCWV Spring and summer cork stack (similar stack here). At the time of this post, I can only find the larger more expensive version of the cork stack online to link to. Please do your own search on the interwebs to see if you can find a cheaper alternative…cause I really couldn’t!…sorry! T substitute for printed Cork, you can use regular cork (which is cheaper …ofcourse!) and colour with a red marker or you can just use red cardstock. These options will look just as cute.
