After I finished the card using the Heart Framelits I knew I had to make one with the Labels Framelits just as soon as possible. And I'd earned a free Gnome Sweet Gnome stamp set from Stampin' Up! so I wanted to us it too.
I'm still going to add another embellishment to my card but I'm not sure just what yet. And since I'm not at home, I can't do anything anyway! I'll just keep on thinking on it.
Here are the steps I used along the way to layer my card:
After you've selected the Framelits you want to use, the largest Framelit will go on your top/uppermost piece of card stock. Sounds simple but---I'll admit, it took me two "ooopes" (several hours apart) before I got it right!
Attach the top layer to the next layer and then position the next Framelit and run it through the Big Shot.
Then lay the top layers over the stamped layer so you can determine where to lay the ribbon. Place a bit of Snail adhesive about 1.5" from each end. Position ribbon and press on adhesive to hold it in place.
Then flip the layers over and adhere the tag ends.
Now it's safe to attach your layers to your card front base and send your finished card off to a friend. My girlfriend's birthday is tomorrow and she has an amazing yard--always trimmed and decorated for the season. I just realized that this will be her birthday card because she does "Light up my LIFE" -- rather than MY lawn. Our 'lawn' is non-existant. Only natural mountain landscaping!
