Hi there,

It’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you how to create this underwater puzzle card.

Step 1: Die Cutting and Stamping

  • die cut the Puzzle Heart Background from smooth white cardstock
  • stamp the turtle and some bubbles from the Water Creatures set with alcohol-marker-friendly black ink

Step 2: Coloring

  • color the images and the background with Spectrum Noir Triblend Markers and add extra shading with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils
  • ink up the edges with Distress Ink Black Soot

Step 3: Die Cutting

  • die cut the Puzzle Heart
  • die cut the word OCEAN using the letters from the Butterfly Pocket Insert die set

Step 4: Creating the Background

  • ink up a rectangular piece of smooth white cardstock with Blending Brushes and Distress Oxide Ink (Dusty Concord, Peacock Feathers, Vintage Photo)
  • add some splatters with watered-down Perfect Pearls (Cappuccino, Heirloom Gold)

Step 5: Assemble the Card

  • adhere the background panel to a creme cardbase
  • puzzle the piece into the frame
  • add the letters as a sentiment

I hope you got inspired.

Hugs,

You Complete Me

February 21, 2019

February!…the month of love and romance! Hello. It’s Samantha sharing my You Complete Me card using Elizabeth Craft Designs Puzzle Heart die and Love Sentiments Stamp set. February happens to be my Wedding Anniversary month – so for me, it’s a doubly romantic time of year and a wonderful excuse (not that I need one) to create cards for the heart.

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Die cut the two piece Puzzle Heart die using pattern paper and corrugated card stock.

Step 2: Adhere the detailed puzzle pieces to the corrugated heart.

Step 3: Stamp the sentiment on Kraft card measuring 7 cm x 2 cm.

Step 4: Adhere the heart and sentiment to a 10.5 cm x 15.5 cm Kraft card front.

Step 5: (Optional) Add a detailed machine stitched border (using a combination of straight lines and zigzags).

Step 6: Using scissor, cut any left over pattern paper and corrugated card into small uneven strips and adhere these as shown to your card front.

Step 7: Adhere Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the front of White Soft Finish Cardstock (measurement 3cm x 3cm).

Step 8: Die cut one heart puzzle piece.

Step 9: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of True Red Silk Microfine Glitter. Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 10: Use foam tape to adhere this puzzle piece to the card front. Embellish the card with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere card front to a A6 card base.

How did you celebrate Valentine’s Day? I hope you liked today’s card tutorial – give it a try and create something beautiful for that special someone in your life.

Happy Crafting!

Samantha
