Using Project Life Cards…for CARDS! Red & Gray Love Card

Happy Monday! Today I thought I would share a super fast and simple card that I created using the Everyday Adventure Accessory pack from Project Life by Stampin’ Up!  As we were working on our projects for the convention display boards, we were sent a set of Project Life cards and accessories and invited to create some projects using the supplies in a “non-traditional” way.


I saw the heart die-cut card from the accessory pack and thought it would be a fun core element to a card.  So I grabbed my Pictogram Punches stamp set and was excited to discover that the I <3 You stamp was an exact fit!

Tips for making this card:

  • Cut a some glimmer paper 1/8” larger than your base paper (so in this case, the grey striped card was 3”x4”, so I cut my Real Red glimmer paper to 3-1/8” x 4-1/8”).  This gives you a very fine border around your main image and just a hit of sparkle to light it up.  It is a great way to add the sparkle without overwhelming the card with lots of bling!
  • Take a strip of scrap paper and turn it into a fun stripe for the background of your card.  In this case, I took a wide piece of Smoky Slate cardstock and glued it diagonally across the card front.  Then I flipped over my card and trimmed along the edges of the card base to cut off the extra paper that was hanging over the edge of the card.
  • Love those matching punches & stamp sets!!  The new Itty Bitty Accent Punch pack is a set of 3 punches for only $16.95 for all of them.  The heart and star are new sizes and all perfectly match with the Pictogram Punches stamp set.  The shapes are used in the sentiments for the set and so you can easily add a pop of color or glimmer to your project and no fussy cutting required!
