Lunchbox Lovenotes

This card is super simple to make - just a few supplies are needed. The KellyCraft™ Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square makes it easier than ever to quickly align all the elements on your projects, and the Jimbo Lojik™ stamps give you a great assortment of eclectic verses to bring a smile to someone’s face.   CraftLace™ is a great unexpected product to use for embellishing cards of any type. 

Cut green card stock to 4” x 8”.  Fold in half to make card. 

Cut black card stock to 3 3/4” x 3 3/4”.  Cut patterned paper to 3 1/2” x 3 1/2”.   Mount patterned paper to black mat with Tacky Glue.  

Ink “You’re the type of boy I’d make a sandwich for” stamp, use Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square to stamp straight onto green card stock.  Trim around verse.  Cut black mat to fit beneath verse. 

Cut 2 pieces of aqua and one piece of black CraftLace™ about 6” long.  String heart button onto black lace.  With button centered, tie 3 pieces of CraftLace™ together with a knot on each end, so you end up with an embellishment about 4” long for the side of the card.  

Align all the elements of the card with the Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square and mount to card front.  

Glue button and CraftLace™ embellishment to left side of card front as shown.
