Creative Paperclay® Embellishments for Cards!

Use Creative Paperclay® to create light weight embellishments for your handmade greeting cards.

I love vintage Valentines and have a large collection  of them.  This time of year I love using them to make the Valentines to give to my special friends!  For this card I used a couple of with a sewing theme.  I wanted a little something extra on the card to give it some dimension, so I made a half spool of thread for the card.

Creative Paperclay®
Mold Compound
Brown ink
Embroidery floss
GLitter Glue
Card stock for card base
Pattern paper for background

First, I made a mold using a spool.  Pictured is the mold with Creative Paperclay® drying in the mold.  I like to give my items at least a few hours to dry (sometimes 24 depending on the thickness of the object.)  Once the spool was dry I inked it.  Then wrapped it with embroidery thread (to look like a thread.)

Fussy cut the Valentines. Attach the pattern paper to the card base, then the doily, and Valentines.  Using Tacky glue attach the spool of thread.

 Add a little glitter glue to the dress and hair bow.

The Valentine is complete...
