I just wanted to post another card that I made for this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: How to Package Cards with Oversized Embellishments.
My card doesn't have a lot of oversized embellishments per say, but using dimensional adhesive along with my twine bow creates a bit of bulk.
I used Teresa Collins patterned paper (isn't it gorgeous?), from which I diecut some PTI Love Lives Here Houses. The sentiment is from PTI's Road Trip stamp set, which I stamped in versamark and heat embossed in white. Then I rubbed some white ink onto my cardstock to lighten it a little.
The bottom border is cut with my PTI heart border die. And, on the inside hearts, I diecut them from red cardstock and then stamped over them with PTI's BB: Herringbone stamp set.
For my packaging, I took a piece of waxed paper and folded it in half. I sewed it together to make a pocket and then cut it out with pinking shears.
I used one of the leftover cardstock houses (also stamped with PTI's BB: Herringbone) and patterned paper hearts and mounted them on a piece of soft stone cardstock that I diecut with PTI's Half & Half dies and ran through my Big Shot with PTI's Woodgrain IP. I like how it lines up with the houses on the card.
Thanks for looking!
