Everlasting Love

Everlasting Love

Hi friends!

I have always been inspired by Black and White cards so today I want to share one with you.  I took the idea of the window card I did last week and added another layer.


a little closer look:


and what the inside looks like:



Products Used:

HCPC 3638 – Romantique Swans PreCut Set
HCPC 3641 – Heartthrob PreCut Set
HCD 745 – Luggage and Tags Die
HCD 755 – Romantique Garden Die
HCDP1 249 – Romantique Garden Paper Collection
Paper Shaping Tools & Piercing Mat
Art Institute Glue – Dries Clear Glue
Spellbinders Tool N’ One

Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Glitter, Fruit Punch Stickles, Glitter Cardstock, Watercolor Pencils, Craftwell Regency Embossing Folder, Pearls and Bling from my stash and die cutting machine.


Start by taking a piece of  10″ x 7″ cardstock and folding it so it is a 5″ x 7″ card.  Take another piece of card stock 6 3/4″ x 7″ and scor down the 7″ side at the 1″ mark so you end up with a 1″ x 7″ flap and a 5 3/4″ x 7″ piece.  Measure the center of the cardstock on the opposite side of the 1″ scor and draw a line from the top to the middle, repeating for the bottom.  Once marked, cut off the extra parts so you have a point.  Finally attach the 1″ flap to the back, right side of the 5″ x 7″ card.  If you want to finish the back nice, add another 5″ x 7″ piece to the back to cover the flap you just attached.  To make the window, attach a die, cut side up to the inside part of the card and pass through your die cutting machine.  Due to the multiple layers you might have to cut this a few times removing each layer that is cut off until you get all the way through the layers.  Once you are finished with the layers of White, cover with your favorite paper from the Romantique Garden Paper Collection.  I actually made a Silhouette cut file for all of this and would be glad to share if you send me a message.  Finally decorate the card as desired and enjoy.  If you would like to make your leaves look like mine, I colored them using my watercolor pencils and sprayed them with Glimmer Spray!

Have a wonderful day my crafty friends!
