Tales of You & Me - by Prima and Frank Garcia
Prima's newest collection by Prima and Frank Garcia, Tales of You & Me , is one of those collections that is a "must have" - with soft warm colors. These papers are great for layouts but I am also having fun making cards using 990992 Prima Tales of You & Me - 4x6 Journal Cards and the 3x4 cards a well. I love how the papers look with kraft backgrounds. The kraft gives the paper an added vintage boost.
I accented this card with gorgeous gold trim... Prima Memory Hardware -by Frank Garcia - Rocquencourt Doily Lace.
This is my second card
This card was made using layers upon layers. I created a small envelope that I will share with you at the bottom of this post. I also will show you how I made this card.
Here's how I made this card:
Step 1. Cut layers. Ink edges. I used Seedless Preserves and Vintage Photo Distress Inks. I really wanted to pull out a rich purple hue with the Seedless Preserves.
Step 2. I made a small envelope using kraft paper. You can find the envelope template here.
Step 3. I cut out the envelope making sure my postcard, or letter fit nicely.
Step 4. I added some foam tape under the flap of the envelope before I attached it to the envelope. The I stamped the butterfly image onto the flap. The stamp is from the Tales of You & Me collection as well ( Prima Frank Garcia Tales of You & Me - Stamp Set 990930). I used clear embossing powder to make the stamped image a little crisper and to pop a little.
Step 6. I used a craft knife and cut into the flower images so that the envelope could nicely fit onto the top of the card.
Here is the template for the envelope that I created. You can find the link right here.
Here are some close ups.
