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.
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...
