Last night was another fun card night with the gals of my meetup group. We made three cards and I thought I would share today one of the cards we did. I knew I wanted to showcase the Filled with Love set and the Bitty Buttons you can get free with the bundle and so I started brainstorming ideas for a layout. Then I saw a card created by Robin Merriman and thought it would be perfect to start from. I changed it up a bit so that I could use the super fun new glimmer paper and add in the cute heart bitty button, plus simplify some of the layers to make it a bit faster for the class setting.
I’ve had this stamp set for a while but have been so caught up with Christmas that I’ve been slow to start using it. However, it is another stamp set that I am crossing my fingers will make it into the main catalog next year. I love how versatile and modern it is!
Tips for this Card –
When stamping the big hearts on the left side of the card, start by stamping the heart in the middle. Then you can more easily control how much is cut off on the top and bottom hearts as well as feel like you have reasonably centered layouts of your heart and layered love.
Glue down all your layers before adding your heart Bitty Button. It just makes it easier to get adhesive on your Love layers.
Adhere your heart Bitty Button with Crystal Effects. This clear lacquer also makes for excellent glue that actually dries super clear so you don’t get adhesive outlines or wiggly layers like you might with glue dots or double sided tape. You don’t need very much, just a thin coating on the back of your button
Oh, and the glimmer paper punches like a dream with your standard punches.
