You & Me Card
First Cut

You & Me Card

I made a Valentine’s Day card for my husband using the white corrugated paper and the stencil material.

I love them both!  I used this man woman shape and placed them inside a heart with an ampersand.  I typed “you” and “me” with my Studio Type Tool using a font on my computer called Stencil, which is perfect for using with actual stencils.  These elements make a terrific combination for a masculine Valentine.

You can see I used the new corrugated paper for the heart.  Doesn’t it give great texture and visual interest to the card?  I cut my text from the new stencil material.  It has a sticky back, so I dabbed the sticky side against some cloth before applying it to my paper just to make sure it wouldn’t damage the paper when removing it.

The sticky side holds it nicely in place while you add your medium.  I used plain white acrylic paint here.  Once it’s mostly dry, just peel away the stencil, return it to its backing, and save it for later!

One final detail I added to the card was a scribbly border with a gold Silhouette sketch pen to sketch on the red card base before cutting.  This was simply created by drawing a rectangle in Studio Designer Edition and using the Edge Sketch (Scribble) advanced options.  The metallic sketched border gives a nice shimmer in the light.

  1. Kelly, this card is so cool! I love the corrugated and stenciling. I am totally going to download that font!

  2. Such a cute card Kelly!! Love how you combined the corrugated paper and stencil material!!

  3. Great use of the stencil and corrugated paper…I actually thought the heart was striped in color at first so it really adds a nice touch!

  4. How do we find Freebooter Script? Thanks.

  5. How do we find the Edge Sketch (Scribble) advanced options? Thanks.

    1. Nancy, it’s in Studio Designer Edition. Go to the Sketch Window (looks like scribbles for the icon), choose Edge, then click on the word “advanced” at the bottom. You can choose Scribble for an edge effect and customize its density, etc.

  6. I love this modern look for a card. And can’t wait to try the stencil material.

    This is my first time linking up a new project. Thanks for hosting!

    1. Thank you, Kim! I’m glad you could play along. 🙂
