World Card Making Day: You Make My Heart Sing by Authentique Paper


Today is World Card Making Day and I am excited to share with you a card I created with Authentique Paper's newest collection, Harmony.


I have to showcase their newest addition to their line up - Card Making Stack and Authentic Life Cards Pack!! They are amazing and cut my card making time in no time :)


The Card Making Stack has 18 sheets of a collection and are pre-scored in the middle to create an A2 sized card (4¼ x 5½").


The Authentic Life Cards are versatile - you can use them in pocket scrapbooking, journaling box, ATC (Artist Trading Cards)...anything! But I choose to use it as my card panel. Don't you love the sentiment of this one?


I cut/embossed A2 Tranquil Moments Die #4 (the smallest size die is Die #1) with red cardstock, using Spellbinders® Grand Calibur® Die Cutting and Embossing Machine. To create a beautiful mat for the sentiment. Spellbinders Tool 'n One™ to take out my die template.


So how do you put adhesive on your intricate die cuts? I use Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Adhesive Sheets. Pull the liner back from the adhesive sheet, place your die cut on to the sticky side, cover with the liner and rub or burnish the die cut. Easy, compact and no machine to carry around! LOVE it!


Assemble the pieces. Make sure that the sentiment is adhered with 3D Foam Squares for dimension. Add pearls and it's ready to send! Here's a second look!


Project Supplies:
Authentique Paper – Card Making Stack and Authentic Life Cards Pack (Harmony Collection)
Spellbinders® Creative Arts - S5-216 A2 Tranquil Moments, Tool 'n One and Grand Calibur Machine
Cardstock - WorldWin Papers (Red Cardinal Cardstock)
Pearls - Want2Scrap©
Adhesives - SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L® (Adhesive Sheet and 3D Foam Squares)

Next time you are in a pinch, grab Authentique Paper's Card Making Stack and Life Cards Pack. Took me 10 mins to create this!
