I just wanted to do a quick post sharing the clean and simple (CAS) Project Life (PL) style cards I made for my Youtube friends Jenn (YT: ScrapbenaCreations) and Michelle (YT: MichLxo). I scrap lifted an idea that I saw on the super talented May Park’s blog: Mayholic in Crafts and adjusted it for the smaller 3×4 size cards and for the love theme requested by Jenn and Michelle.
I started with two 3″ x 4″ pieces of brightly patterned Dear Lizzy Lucky Charms paper. I rounded the corners to create the standard PL shape and did the same to two pieces of linen colored cardstock (I think any soft solid paper would work). Then I took the two cardstock pieces and drew a simple heart on one and a heart key on the other. I made sure to keep the designs simple because I next cut the shapes out with an Exacto knife over a cutting board. I used my plain black ink Uniball pen to make faux stitch lines around the shapes on the clean (non-drawn) side of each design, and I used foam adhesive strips to layer each cut cardstock piece over a patterned paper base. They were looking a little plain so I decided to bling it up with colored rhinestones and enamel dots for extra color and pizzazz!
Here’s the video sharing this project.

Love how these turned out, and especially the faux stitching! Thanks for joining us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge this week!
Thanks for the fun challenge! I love SSS!
I love these cards. Thank you so much for putting so much love into making them! I also love how you laid them on patterned paper to take the photo. Never thought of that, but it makes them pop! xO
Thanks Jenn! After working on so many PL cards recently I have started to want some myself! XD I thought if I made any I could use them as larger embellishments or as part of clusters on layouts. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Kristina
