All You Need Is Love Card

Hello Rubber Cafe' Fans!  Today I have another cute card that I made to share with you today using the January Kit of The Month - For The Love Of Cats and Dogs.  For this card, I used the add-on set, True Love.  I love this add-on set.  You can make cute cards or elegant, whichever is your style!  Here is my card.....

To create this card, you will need:
  •  Kraft & White cardstock from the kit
  •  pink hearts patterned paper from the paper pad in the kit
  • True Love Add-on stamp set
  •  pink seam binding ribbon from kit
  •  Creative Corners from kit
  • Standard Circles Large #5, Standard Circles Small #3; Big Scalloped Circles Lg #5, Big Scalloped Circle SM #3 from Spellbinders Paper Arts.
 As you can see, I used a piece of the Kraft & White cardstock from the kit.  The Kraft cardstock is cut at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored at 5 1/2" to create a A2 size card.  I like this size and orientation because its easier to tie your ribbon around after you put everything else on.    Cut the white to 4 x 5 1/4".  The small strip of patterned paper is cut to 2 x 4".   Before I cut this strip, I cut/embossed the Big Scalloped Circles from this paper.  I am a paper saver when it comes to using supplies from this kit, so this is what I did when I cut these circles.
I cut the smaller scalloped circle inside the larger one.  This way I still had plenty of paper to use in other ways for more cards!
I stamped the circles onto white cardstock.  The large circle fits inside the Standard Circles Large #5 die (#1 is the smallest in the set) from Spellbinders.  The small circle fits inside the Standard Circles Small #3 die.  After I cut/embossed these, I layered them together using Scrap Happy Sheer Glue and 3d Foam squares. 
Here is what the back looks like on the large scalloped circle.....
See?  Nobody will know what you did to save paper except you!   Stamp the All you need is love sentiment along the bottom of the patterned paper strip using black ink.

 Add your creative corners from the kit onto the 2 top corners and then adhere this down on the Kraft cardstock base using Scrap Happy Sheer Glue.

 Then complete your card by adding all your goodies!

I had so much fun making this card, with my paper saving trick, I think you can make at least 3 of this same card with the supplies in your kit.  Of course, you can always use a different patterned paper to make more! 
Hope you are having fun using this month's kit!
