Valentine Twisted Easel
With Valentines day not very far away, its only right that I feature a valentine card.
Using an image from Crafter's Companion Popcorn bear.
For this you will need:-
6 x 6 card blank
valentine bear decoupage , and co-ordinating backing paper
6 x 6 Silver Mirri Card
5.5 x 5.5 red Card, plus a small piece of red card for the stopper/sentiment 1 x 1.5
Silver edge peel offs
Double sided tape or Collall Wet Glue and foam pads
A score board / score tool
Firstly open out the card blank to completely flat. Line up what will be the front of the card point to point diagonally, score, fold and burnish. The front should now look like two triangles.
Cover the bottom half only with double side tape or glue and attach the 6 x 6 silver mirri card to cover the whole of the front, now it should look like a complete silver front panel.
Matt the red square card to this.
Cut out the decoupage base image and decoupage pieces and layer until complete, set aside.
Decorate the inside of the card base with co-ordinating paper, ensuring the images are the correct way,
Next attach the completed decoupage image to the front of the card. For a more polished look, using peel off around all edges of the card. Add a valentine sentiment to the remaining piece of red card stock, again use the peel off just to finish off and attach this as a stopper using a foam pad for added height. Finally attach the red bow to the card to complete the look.
I love decoupage, it brings a card alive in my view. Well, until next time, Take Care, Happy Crafting, Jo xx
