Instructions:

  1. This card is super simple to make – just a few supplies are needed. The KellyCraft™ Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square makes it easier than ever to quickly align all the elements on your projects, and the Jimbo Lojik™ stamps give you a great assortment of eclectic verses to bring a smile to someone’s face.   CraftLace™ is a great unexpected product to use for embellishing cards of any type.
  2. Use TrimAir trimmer to cut green card stock to 4” x 8”.  Fold in half to make card.
  3. Cut black card stock to 3 3/4” x 3 3/4”.  Cut patterned paper to 3 1/2” x 3 1/2”.   Mount patterned paper to black mat with Tacky Glue.
  4. Ink “You’re the type of boy I’d make a sandwich for” Jimbo Lojik™ stamp, use Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square to stamp straight onto green card stock.  Trim around verse.  Cut black mat to fit beneath verse.
  5. Cut 2 pieces of aqua and one piece of black CraftLace™ about 6” long.  String heart button onto black lace.  With button centered, tie 3 pieces of CraftLace™ together with a knot on each end, so you end up with an embellishment about 4” long for the side of the card.
  6. Align all the elements of the card with the Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square and mount to card front.
