One Card, Two Ways – Love Letter

Stampin Up Love Letter #1

 

There are lots of birthdays being celebrated this week and I needed cards!

I made this first card and liked the layout. But it is sort of bulky for mailing so this is going to be hand delivered to those having birthdays. So, I created a second card from the same layout that is flatter and can easily be mailed. Scroll down to see the second card.

And that’s why today’s post is One Card, Two Ways!

 

I cut 3" wide pieces of paper from the Love Letter designer series paper. The piece with the sqaure boxes is 1-1/2" tall and the baroque circle piece is 2-1/2" tall. When layered the complete piece is 3-1/4" tall. I used the corner rounder punch on the top corners and added a Very Vanilla dotted scallop ribbon border punched piece along the bottom. To cover the meeting of the two papers, I added a length of Very Vanilla 1/4" grosgrain ribbon.

The flower was made from 8 punched scallop circles using a black design from the same Love Letter paper. After scrunching up the punches and layering them, I added an Antique brad to the center. I love these brads!

The "Happy Birthday" greeting from the Curly Cute stamp set was stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock with Riding Hood Red ink. I made a flag tail on the end and then attached it to the card with dimensionals, weaving it just a little bit as I adhered it.

Stampin Up Love Letter #2

 

One this second card, I substituted the punched flower for layered circle punches.

I punched a 2-3/4" Scallop Circle and a 1-1/4" Circle from Basic Black cardstock. I layered these with a 1-3/4" Circle and a 1" Circle punched from the Love Letter designer series paper. Since this punched piece was wider, I also moved the greeting to the right an inch or so.


So, which card is your favourite? #1 with the punched flower or #2 with the punched circles. Please leave a comment below and let me know.

    Both cards are great, but I prefer the one with the flower.
