I'll Always Love You - MPS Card

 I'll Always Love You


 First, I want to welcome all my new followers and thank everyone for your amazing comments on my posts. I do read them all. I get so excited & I keep looking to see if I have any new comments. So feel free to leave comments on my posts. If you have any questions, just email me & I will be happy to answer them.

For our My Pink Stamper Design Team post today, it is Pink, Love, & with the Love-alicious stamp set. Go to My Pink Stamper's web site to view all the design teams amazing projects. I am sure you will be inspired and want to get these stamps for yourself.

Now for the card. Once I figured out what I wanted to create, this card was alot of fun to put together.

Cricut Cuts and Supplies Used
Gypsy Wanderings Cricut Cartridge
Card Base- button #6 Decor Tag- 7.25"(scored & folded in half)
Card Frame- button #6 Shift Decor Tag- 7.25" (scored & folded in half)
Sweethearts Cricut Cartridge
 Couple- button #4- 3.35"
Lyrical Letters Cricut Cartridge
Heart- button #44 Shift Connected- 5"

Cuttlebug Embossing Folder-Swiss Dots
Pink Rhinestone Accents- Treasures by Shabby Chic
Core'dinations Paper
Making Memories Sanding Block
Stazon Black Ink



Instructions & Tips
Cut out all the cuts on the Cricut. I used Core'dination Paper for all of it. I love that paper because it cuts so well on the Cricut, it is textured, and it has a colored core inside. Sand the edges of the cuts. Score the Frame & Card Base down the middle. Emboss the base of the card with the Embossing folder. I embossed each side of it separately so it would fit and I wouldn't have any weird lines. Glue the Frame & Card Base together. Have them folded half way when you adhere them or it won't fold well. Line them up first because there is a right & wrong way. Glue the Couple down. Stamp, I'll always love you, on the heart. Just so you know. My Pink Stamper Stamps are an AMAZING quality. You can see how crisp & fine the stamp looks. They are some of the best stamps I have ever used. Yes, I had that opinion even before I was on this design team. Ok, back to the card. I used Stickles on the top right corner of the heart. It looks like a smudge in the picture. Pop up the heart & add rhinestones around the card. On the inside of the card I added a paper since it was embossed. I rounded two of the corners with a corner rounder to follow the shape of the card.
Thank you for reading this long post. I know it is very detailed, so I could share some tips with you. 
I hope to do some videos soon to show all the details in my posts.
