Remember this one?

For those of you who checked my blog back in November – I made a card for my sister’s engagement.  It was really fun and easy to make so I decided to provide you with a mini ‘tutorial’ so that you could learn how to make it at home!

First I cut out the paper for my three layers – my red for the card, chocolate chip (as this brown is called…yuuuumm) for the background and caramel for the front.

Next, I punched all the corners of the caramel and chocolate chip cardstock for that look that I just love!  Using my basic blank ink, I stamped my bride and groom image.

Using my versamark pen I coloured where I wanted to put clear embossing powder for the cool shiny effect.  I then heat embossed the image (if you check out my earlier post, you will see that I was just playing around and had no idea how to use the pen – I like what I discovered!).

I used my fabulous scallop circle punch to make the brown background for my heart image.  Using my coluzzle (super easy to use, with lots of different sizes to choose from – a great deal for $24!) I made the circle in the caramel on which I then stamped the heart (using my versamark pen) and added red embossing powder to it and heated it.

The chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon is my favourite!  I absolutely HAD to use it!  I trimmed it and attached it behind the caramel cardstock with glue dots.  I then attached the heart to the scallop circle with a couple dimensionals to give it that “pop up” effect and a glue dot to attach it to the ribbon.

And voilà!  Now it’s your turn! 🙂  If you want to email me pictures of your creations I can post them here 🙂

And for those of you curious to know why I am posting this tutorial now…well, aside from deciding it would be neat to give a step by step tutorial on how to make a card, my sister got married yesterday!!!  😀  It was an intimate outdoor wedding (we totally lucked out with the weather!  No rain in Vancouver in February – lucky I know!) and then we had a really nice dinner – all at Stanley Park.  She was beautiful and I am so happy for them – she found a great guy.  I had a great time and I fell in love with her new nephew who is almost three and super adorable (and sat so well at the dinner!).  Gotta love those cuties.  Hope you all had a great weekend too!  I will post the wedding card I made for her soon 🙂
