Valentine's Day Card - Part Three - Finished!


My Valentine's day card is finished.  I am really happy with the result.  I wouldn't hesitate to stitch fabric onto paper in the future.  If you want to see my progress posts on this project - they are here { Part One - Part Two }

Since my last post on this project, I cut two pieces of black paper, one for each side of the inside of the card.  I wanted to make sure to cover up the underside of my stitching. 


Then I glued these to the inside of the card.  I used Elmer's Craft Bond rubber cement. It worked super and it didn't pucker the paper!



Next, I cut two pieces of white paper to layer onto the black paper.  I am sure seeing those scallop edge scissors, you know what is coming next!


I scallop cut the edges of the white papers and glued them to the black pieces:


 Here is what they look like all glued in place.  Ready for me to write my message:


I like the strong contrast of the black and white both on the inside and the cover:


Now it is all finished and ready to go!
