Hello There Friend

Status

Hi everyone it’s Holly here today and I’ve got another fun project for you Showcasing the Right at Home Simple Sentiment set and the Perfect Paper Crafting Perfect Tears Tool. 
I started out by tearing the edge of a few pieces of coordinating paper papers from Doodlebug with the Perfect Tears Tool. You can use the pen in this kit to create a wet edge to make the tearing a little smoother but I like using this tool on the dry paper for a rougher texture.

Once I had all three pieces of the pattern paper torn I adhered them to a Turquoise card base and trimmed off any excess.

Then I die cut a circle from some White card stock and added some color with Distress inks to create a background for my images.

I stamped several images form the RAH sets Friendly Fox  , Deerest Friends  and Birdhouse onto some White Copic friendly card stock and colored them in with Copics. I cut them with some scissors and added some Black marker around the outer edge for a cleaner look.

I adhered the images to the Circle to create the scene. Then I added some Twine to the front of the card and the image circle with some Foam tape.

I stamped the sentiments from the Simple Sentiments set and trimmed them out with my scissors and adhered them over the edge of the Circle to create a custom sentiment.

A Little Note to Say Hello card

 

 

Instructions:

  • Place the Perfect Cutting Mat underneath desired cutting area.
  • Using the Perfect Layers Mini 1/8” trim around using green patterned paper as guide.
  • ***** please note that in the following photo my cuts appear different than described above. I did not have a large enough floral paper piece and I wanted to use it so I improvised by adhering this piece to the green patterned paper and after trimming with the tools, I cut this in half before adhering to yellow base paper.

layer-two

  • Adhere large base pieces to card base.
  • Place the Perfect Tears– Perfect Wave Tool- Small Wave Edge along bottom edge of the long area on the backside of paper strip/piece. Press down on edge with one hand, while tearing paper upward toward you. Be sure to hold tool down firmly and pull with a bit of force to get a clean cut.
