Love card - Tutorial by Daniela Dobson

Hi, Daniela here with my first blog post. I created a card using non-card items. Let me show you how.

Here are the Samantha Walker products I am using today:
12 piece tag set
1. Open 12 piece tag set in your Silhouette Studio and ungroup all the elements.

2. Select the left lower tag and copy it to a new window. Delete four small circles (holes). 

3. Move the center circle to the right side and make a duplicate of that circle below the original circle. Using the up arrow key nudge the bottom circle to the top one so that they overlap slightly. Select both circles, right click and weld. This is going to be your card and it should fold nicely in half.

4. Open Pair of hearts box and ungroup all the elements. 

5. Copy only the heart and paste it to the window where the card is. Position the hart on the bottom half of the circle. Select circle(s) and the hart and go to the align window and click align center. Right click and make a compound path. 

6. Resize the elements as you need them. My card base is is 4.5" and the inside circle is slightly smaller. Open Washi tape wordstrips  and use the one that says "love".

7.  Cut all the elements, including another circle slightly smaller than the card front. 

8. Paint the bottom of the card (where the heart is) with Calkboard paint. Let dry. 

9. Add adhesive to the circle insert adding extra adhesive where the heart opening is. I used iCraft Adhesive. Adhere to the inside of the card. 

10. Add flower soft to the heart opening. 

11. Adhere the circle card to the green card base. Adhere jute with a flower. Adhere Love wordstip with foam adhesive. Write "you" with chalk. 

If you don't have Flower Soft, you can use glitter or flock.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Without your readership, I wouldn't be doing a blog.

My blog is supported by sponsors and affiliates. If you decide to make a purchase through my affiliate links, I am paid a small commission for it. This doesn’t cost you anything additional. These commissions help to keep the rest of my content free, and allow me to blog more often.

From time to time I make recommendations of products that I love to use, or products that I have designed. Occasionally, manufacturers send me products to play with. They have not obligated me to show them on my blog or review them. I only make positive remarks about those things that I truly love and enjoy to use. Everyone's personal experience with various products may be different, as we all use things in different ways. I am not compensated for these remarks, and merely pass on my opinion to you as a reader. I hope you find my opinions valuable.
