Last week a friend of mine gave me some nail polish and two lip glosses she didn’t want from her Birchbox. I was so tickled to receive some fun makeup, so I made her a fun card! I have a lip stamp so I can add a SWAK / Seal With a Kiss to card envelopes, and I thought it would be cute to make her a card with these lips on it. It felt a little funny making a card like this for a friend and not my husband, so I’ll have to make him one. 🙂
I cut a piece of white cardstock to 8.5″ x 4.25″ so that it would be a square 4.25″ x 4.25″ card. The next layer was a piece of red cardstock cut to a 3.75″ square. Then, the white patterned paper is 3.25″ square of cardstock I stamped on. To get the lighter colored lips, I stamped the first time onto scrap paper and stamped the “second generation” stamp onto the cardstock.
I stamped the lips again on scrap cardstock and cut around them with my Non-Stick Micro-Tip Scissors.Then, I took some medium weight crafting wire and wrapped it around my glue pen. In the past, I’ve poked a hole in the top layer of paper and thread part of the wire through, then taped it in place in back. However, I had already attached the top layer to my card so I put a glue dot onto the paper and rested the bottom of the wire coil onto it and put some scrap cardstock over it to conceal the wire ending and hold it in place. Then, I taped the coil onto the back of the cut out smooch.
I played around with the filters in a camera app in my phone when I was wearing one of the lip glosses from my friend. Don’t my lips kind of resemble the stamp? 🙂
