Today I'm going to show you how to make a Roamntic Card which could also be used as a anniversay card or wedding card. It comes with it's own envelope to keep the card in. I will give a list of things you will need and then will give instructions on making the enveloep first then the card.I am guessing your are seasoned crafter and have a basic tool kit.
Stuff you need:
12"x12" piece of card
Heart stamp (I used damask hearts from chocolate baroque)
embossing powder (I used detail Silver)
versafine ink pad
Begin with your 12"x12" piece of card and trim it down to 8"x8". Keep the cut of bits of card as you are goin g to use them later
Once you have your 8"x8" square piece of card you mark the cnetre of each edge.with a ruler and pencil
Next draw diagonal lines from corner to corner to find the middle of the card..
What you need to do now is score along from one middle pont to the other as shown in the photo. Along were I have laid my ruler. You will need to do thios to all four sides.
You now need to fold the the points into the centre as shown in the photo again doing it to all four sides
Once you have embossed five hearts cut them out. Put one aside for the card which goes inside the envelope.
With the remaining four attach a pieve of double sided sticky tape TO THE LOWER HALF OF THE REVERSE OF THE HEARTS.
You can see from the close up the point is slightly showing betewwn the centre of the heart.
repeat this with the other three hearts.
To make the card take a piece of A4 card and cut it 11.5" x 5.5", fold short edges to short edges to yield a 5.5" card blank. In my sample I used some Mulberry Paper and my last heart to decorate the front. Put inside the envelope and job done.
