Retro I Love You Card


Good Afternoon  Everyone
  it’s Bitterly Cold here not venturing out feels like Mid Winter…
i decided to make another card using just a backing paper
from the A-May-Zing cd
from Mr Nigel May & Crafters Companion
i  used just 1 sheet of backing paper and a matching insert that are also on the CD
a simple card but very effective
i wanted the words to match the paper so i made a stencil in Digital Craft Artist and printed it onto the back of the backing paper  they were small but not too hard to cut out went around each letter in a black marker pen glued in place with
3d glue gel from Crafters Companion 
once they were set i went over the top with Glossy Accents
added the black Gingham Ribbon and bow made 2 paper beads as an embellishment
thank you for popping by today
hugs linda xxx

Oh yes, love that funky retro paper and those paper beads look really interesting. They sort of look familiar, though. I think I may have made sth. similar when I was (very) young.
