Wednesday, 9 November 2011
It's time for another weekly blog project and Design Team member Heidi has designed a 'Buckle' card. Heidi has used one of the gorgeous new 'Cutie Patootie' images, this little couple are called 'Bert & Mary', Boy & Girl on a Swing. The sentiment is one from a new collection called 'Super Six', great little sentiments, which all mix and match with Little Claire stamps.
Items needed to make this card :
Cutie Patootie - Boy & Girl on a Swing
Sentiment set - Super Six Set
Pink Bazzill Cardstock
My Mind's Eye Paper - So Sophie
Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch
Nestibility Die -

Pink Card Candy
Double sided tape
Momentoe Black Ink Pad
Promarkers : Dusky Rose, Tan, Caramel, Satin, Vanilla, Cool Grey 4 & Ice Grey 1
(1) Stamp image onto a white card square and colour in with Promarkers. Cut away 5 x 13.5cms of the white card blank and put to one side. With the distress ink and some 'Cut and Dry' foam, ink around the edges of the white cardstock and leave to dry. Cut pink card into these sizes : 13.5 x 8.5cms, 13.5 x 13.5cms & 9.5 x 4.5cms. Then cut paper, sized at : 13 x 8xcms, 13 x 13cms and 9 x 4cms.
(2) With the white oblong, make a fold at 10cm and then mat and layer card & paper on to larger area. Layer up card and papers onto card using double sided tape, this makes your buckle. Cut through the layers, making an oblong shaped cut on the left hand side of the card, at 4 and 5cm from the edge, this makes your buckle loop.
(4) Placing the buckle underneath the layers, stick buckle down and then layers on top. Punch out circle and mat and layer the sentiment, stick to right hand side of buckle.
(5) Attach doily edge to flap of card. Add card candy to top of card. Place your buckle inside loop.
