Forever Love

Forever LoveFor today’s post I have created a floral CAS card with an inlaid die cut sentiment. This would make a good Valentine’s card, or even a just-because card to a loved one. Also, after naming this card I ended up having to listen to this song..!

I started with a panel of white card stock. I placed it into my MISTI and arranged the three rose stamps from Altenew’s Brush Art Floral. I then used three different colours of pigment ink – from red through to purple – to stamp them. I moved the two smaller roses, reinked and stamped again. I then took some of the brush stroke petal stamps and stamped them with each of the three colours to fill some of the blank space.

Next I took the “forever” word die from a Carta Bella die setΒ and cut that out from the centre, setting aside all the pieces to make sure I didn’t lose them. I also used the die to cut the word twice from purple card stock matching that used for the card base, and once from a scrap of white.

Using my glue pen I adhered the “forever” die cuts so that they were stacked one on top of the other, with the plain white at the bottom, and the rose decorated one on the top.

Before assembling the card I added a small sentiment which comes from CAS-ual Friday’s Calm and Loving set.

I put a piece of wide double-sided tape behind the opening on decorated panel, and used Tombow Multi Mono Liquid glue across the rest of the panel before adhering it to the card base. I then carefully positioned my stacked sentiment into the space with the exposed tape to attach it. Finally with the help of my tweezers I added in all the negative pieces of the word.

Forever Love 2I am very happy with this card. The result is a very pretty card without being over the top. I really like the look of the inlaid die cut, and definitely want to play with this technique more! I guess I need to get more word dies.

Love,

Lady Joyful
