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
