Paper Sweeties February Blast from the Past: Day 2

Wednesday, February 14, 2018

Welcome back, Paper Sweeties fans, and happy Valentine's Day!  I've cooked up a set of festive cards for my kiddos, to share with you all, on this day two, out of three, of our February Blast from the Past series.  Enjoy!
I started these cards by wrapping 3" square, white, cardstock, card bases, horizontally, in lengths of of red, gingham ribbon, tied, in bows, near their right edges.
I then set them aside; black-embossed the cupcakes on 2-1/2" watercolor, paper squares; and watercolored them with liners of brown and tops of their respective colors.  They were splattered with the same colors of watercolor as their tops, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.
Once everything was dry, they were anchored, to Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party, and Island Indigo cardstocks respectively, with color-coordinating, straight, machine stitching and topped with red, heart buttons, secured with white string.
They were then popped up, with foam tape, off their prepped, card bases, but not before stamping their interiors, in Jet Black ink, with the "I {heart} YOU More than CUPCAKES" sentiment.
I hope to see you back, at the same time and place, tomorrow for one more day of Blast from the Past goodness.  In the meantime, be sure to pop in to visit the rest of this talented team.  Thanks, as always, for humbling me with a visit!  Have a blessed day, Paper Sweeties friends!
