Random Ramblings: LOVE ALWAYS CARD

LOVE ALWAYS CARD

Since I shared that Friday was mine and my husbands anniversary I thought today I would share the card that I made for him.  
I used my SILHOUETTE CAMEO for the entire thing.  
I cut the cirlcle background from a card file in my silhouette library.  
I used all white smooth cardstock from my Simon Says card kits.
I put a piece of dark red cardstock  and on top of that I laid down a piece of vellum, then glued the cirlces on top of that.
I centered that on my card.  
I put the vellum on becuase I didn't want the red behind the circles to be so bright and stand out, but I wanted something back there to add a little contrast from the white on white.  

 I cut the coordinating heart out of red, and the word always.  The word love I cut from some dark grey smooth cardstock.
I glued on the red heart and the words LOVE always.  


Then I covered my red heart in some glossy accents and let it dry completely.  

I love how the card came out and was excited to give it to my husband on Friday.  
I love making cards, I really don't know why I don't do it more often.  :)

  1. How do you glue it down? The circles are so skinny... Do you use small glue dots? I made a bunch of cards like this with my silhouette and used a glue stick (because I am stupid like that haha) and they looked horrible!! But I don't know how else to glue down those skinny lines onto cardstock!

    1. I have a liquid adhesive pen. IT is made by TOMBOW. I just went around the entire edge of the card and then randomly over some of the circles. I glued that down to the vellum and did the same thing to attatch that to the red cardstock. Then I just used my regular adhesive all over the back of the red to attatch it to my card base. :)

  2. I could be wrong but it looks to me like she only glued around the edges for the circle piece.

  3. What font do you use for the word "always"? It's beautiful!
