For my project I made this gorgeous "Amor" card with Sabor's vibrant papers... I absolutely love the Amor collection! It's filled with romantic patterns and cool and ghoulish skeletons. The sheet below is called Sentimentos Amor.
I simply cut sections of this sheet with my scissors. I used the skeleton couple as my focal point and the assorted flowers as embellishments. I inked the edges of all my cut-outs using a PITT Artist Pen to hide all the white edges and give them a more finished look.
To accentuate my cut-outs I used the doily from the Teresa Collins Lover's Lane pocket die set, and the leaves and berry stem from the Thankful Holiday Set using the backsides of the Sentimentos Amor and Corazonzitos papers. Then I inked the edges with black and brown ink using a sponge dauber.
Then I ran my cut-outs through my Xyron Creative Station Lite machine to turn all my cut-out into stickers.
I also cut the border strips form the Sentimentos Amor sheet and ran them through my Xyron X.
For my background I used a corner punch to give the corners a ticketed edge. I used my Xyron Mega Runner to attach my Laguitarra sheet to a black mat. The guitar are one side (backside) but the other side are really lovely images of music sheets. This will be the side of the paper I incorporate into my card.
Now all I need to do is assemble my card ... I simply peel and stick my cut-outs. I tucked a few flowers behind my doily to add a little more color.
Then I attached my die cut leaves and stems with Liquid Lacquer. I also tied my bow and attached a skull brad (again with Liquid Lacquer) and then attached the bow onto the card front with, you guessed it, more Liquid Lacquer.
And here is my finished card...
I hope you all love today's project!! I really loved putting this one together and absolutely love how it turned out!!
Stay tuned for more exciting projects from Craftwell & Sabor Papel!!
Until next time...
