Suite Talk Designer Series Paper

Yesterday, I talked about creating a collage card.  Today,  I’m showcasing more of the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper.  I used the same basic design today as I did in yesterday’s post, but gave it a completely different look.  As I was cutting, I laid out all of the elements I thought I would use.  I decided to share them with you today.   Isn’t that little envelope adorable?

Putting This One Together

  • Today’s card has a bolder look simply by changing the patterned paper and color palette.
  • It’s a standard A-2 top fold card with a cardstock and patterned paper layer.
  • The Real Red grounding square is 2 1/8″ and the frame is a 2 1/2″ square die cut with my Layering Squares Framelits.
  • The inside area of the frame measures approximately a 1 3/4″ square.
  • I cut the sentiment strip 1/2″ x 2 5/8″.
  • The frame is attached using Foam Adhesive Strips.
  • Here’s a Tip:  The Foam Adhesive Strips have slightly more depth than Stampin’ Dimensionals. I used cut pieces of the Adhesive Strip to attach the bottom of the die cut heart and candy to the frame.
  • Doing this kept all of the elements at the same level.
  • Multipurpose Liquid Glue is my adhesive of choice, especially when working with layers.  I have a little time to place my elements and layers exactly where I want them.
  • All of the elements sit nicely on the frame.

You might want to put that adorable little envelope in the top right corner of the frame and the element cluster where the envelope is.  It’s up to you!

That little jewel is from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.  Love them!
