I Love You

It’s a new week with an exciting new product line to highlight from the Stampendous January release! The Stencil Duo Sets designed by Fran Seiford come with complementing metal stencils, a micron pen for doodling and a set of blank cards to begin projects right out of the packaging.

The Stampendous design team will be sharing these fabulous sets with new projects all weekend long as we hop with the folks at Tombow USA where there will be more inspiring projects using them as well.
I used the Heart Duo Stencil set for today's fun gatefold card.




I started by tracing the heart shape with the heart stencil.
Then I lay the companion stencil over the heart.



I traced the design on to the heart.




To create the card base I scored an 8 1/2"  5 1/2" panel of white cardstock at 2 1/8" and at 6 3/4".



I covered the front panels with slightly smaller red panels.
I tied a piece of red ribbon (May Arts) around the left side.



Then I adhered a Tombow USA Fastener Tab on the right panel.



I adhered the left side of the heart to the left side of the card with glue.



The fastener keeps the card closed but then it's easy to open.



I added the sentiment panel to the bottom of the card.



The heart image was colored with Tombow USA recycled color pencils.



Here it is when it's opened up.



Thanks for stopping by!
