Dovecraft Premium White Card, Ultimate
Acrylic Craft Glue, 3D Small Foam Squares, Easyfix Permanent, Vellum, Heat Tool,
Dovecraft Clear Stamp – Happily ever after
Platinum embossing powder
How to Make
1. Create a 4.25” by 5.5” card base using the Dovecraft white card.
2. Using your chosen The Promise patterned paper, cut two panels, the
first panel is a quarter of an inch smaller than the white card base. Yana has
then made the second panel a quarter of an inch smaller than the first panel.
3. Layer the smaller panel on top of the larger panel and stick together.
Using a sewing machine, you can then create a border around the smaller panel using
zigzag stitching. Stick to your Dovecraft white card.
4. Die cut a circle doily, four large corners and one smaller corner
out of white card. Stick the four large corners to each edge of the smaller
panel using glue.
5. Add the die cut doily onto the card base using foam adhesive, cut some
foam squares in half so they can be hidden discreetly behind the doily.
6. Using scissors cut the Happily Ever After sentiment apart.
Remember, you will be able to mount the stamp back together on a clear block to
use it in its original design.
7. Heat emboss the Happily Ever After text onto a strip of vellum
using the embossing powder. Once complete, cut a triangle out at the end of the
vellum strip to create a ribbon design. To finish, heat emboss the two hearts
and cut them out.
8. Yana has then stuck the heat embossed sentiment on top of the
doily using 3D foam pads. Tie some white floss to create a bow and stick below
the sentiment stamp. Layer a smaller doily corner on top of the floss.
9. To add a romantic finishing touch, stick the heat embossed hearts
on top of the small doily corner using 3D foam pads.
