Just Because Cards

Yes, these cards are my Just Because cards for my hubby (I did give him the box set for Valentine's Day) and I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful the Just Because collection that Little Yellow Bicycle sent me is in person. From the paper crafting kit to the stick pins, journaling tags and 6x6 pad, and the yummy papers, making these card was a breeze! 

I Love You Card
I just adore the journaling tags and I wanted showcase this one on the card so I wrapped it in a small doily with twine and stick pins and added a pretty paper rosette. The base of the card is quite simple to re-create - just adhere two pieces of pattern paper together and add vellum tape to the seam where they meet. Add your sentiment and embellishments and your card is complete.

Love Card
I wanted to keep this card simple. To create it, I simply cut out three hearts, faux stitched around them and then using foam dots, I added different pattern papers behind them. Lastly, I adhered vellum tapes to the square card, added a strip of pattern paper and then overlayed the "LOVE" stickers.

I decided that this card needed something more so I used my CAMEO to cut this box. I filled the negative portion of the box with different pieces of pattern paper and then embellished the lid. The card is a perfect fit. You can't see it in the photo but I actually shredded some pattern paper, for the card and some candy to rest on. I'm really excited to give this to my someone special.
