Carta Bella - Words of Love Card in a Card Set

Hello, Carta Bella Paper fans!
I'm up on the Carta Bella Blog today with a greeting card set Words of Love Collection!

I've said it once, I'll say it again...The Carta Bella Words of Love Collection is absolutely breathtaking!  Do you have a Carta Bella Collection of your own?! If not, you are missing out on its beauty...the colors, images/prints, the textured/heavy weight feel...awesome!  As a paper lover, the quality of the Carta Bella collections are the BOMB!

Designer Tip:  Add a little sewing to your paper crafts 

I love to add a stitch or two to a card for texture and to create movement!  I alternate the stitch setting from zigzag to straight for a whimsical effect and leave the thread tails long.

Because I Love You Card

Hugs & Kisses Card

A Note of Love Card

Here is the supply list that I used to create this Words of Love Envelope Card Set Set!

Paper Trimmer
Scoring Tool
Tape Adhesive
Liquid Glue
Heart Shaped Confetti

1.  Cut apart Carta Bella Card Stock to 3.5" by 10" and score at at 5", fold and score to create the card base.

2.  Cut Words of Love paper background panel to 3.25" by 4.75" and adhere.  Cut a second pattern to 2" by 4.75" and adhere as a coordinating strip over the background panel.

3.  Now is a good time to add the stitching, or you could add it to the background panel before adhering to hide the stitches behind the panel.

3.  Die Cut the Create an Envelope Die from three different coordinating/contrasting Words of Love patterned paper, fold on score lines, glue together the bottom flaps.

4.  Stamp over the tiny notes using the Because I Love Die Stamp and slightly tuck inside the envelopes, then adhere the filled envelope to the card front.

5.  Add a few heart shaped confetti with liquid glue to embellish the cards.

When creating with Carta Bella collections, it is easy and fun to whip up handmade cards and gifts!  It is a perfect time of year to create your own cards, Valentine cards!  I hope you are inspired to create some Valentine cards today using your Carta Bella collections!

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
