Silhouette Double Lever Card

Hi everyone.  Thank you, Sheila, for inviting me here again.  This is Charlotte C and I am delighted to share a card with you that I created with my Cameo using a Lori Whitlock design from the Silhouette Store.  The original card was designed as a Christmas card, but because it has four panels, the word “LOVE” jumped out at me when I saw it and thought it would be great for Valentine’s Day.  

I used glitter and foil kraft card stock for two of the cards, reversing the rear of the pattern so that the fancy side was always visible, and I also switched out the designs front and back.  The letters were cut from Rhinestone Resin Self Adhesive Sticker Sheets from The Buckle Boutique.  True confession:  I had a heck of a time getting the sheet to feed into the Cameo because I’m so new at using that machine, I suppose.  And since I only had one red and one blue sheet and couldn’t waste any, I ultimately cut the letters in card stock, stuck them on the sticker sheets and used my scissors and/or Xacto knife – easy peasy to cut.  The matching red hearts were cut with a product from years ago – a Sizzix paddle punch (anyone remember those?)  I swear I keep things forever.  The other hearts as well as the mats for the letters I cut with my Cricut.

My blue card – another small problem.  I ordered what I thought matched the card stock I was using.  Well, it didn’t.  But because this product is actually gel rhinestones I was able to color it to match using an alcohol marker from CTMH.  I was a happy camper.

Thanks for stopping by today.   Happy St. Patrick’s Day.  We had a corned beef and cabbage dinner party Saturday and we’re not even Irish!
