Karen here, sharing a “True Love” Keepsake using Southern Ridge Trading’s Words of Christmas and Abstract Hearts chipboard sets. I loved creating this Keepsake with the versatile chipboard that I chose. They were perfect with the love themed papers I selected. I complimented the papers and chipboard with some vintage embellishments that really gave this piece a classic look. This Keepsake measures 5 x 5 and the size is super fun and easy to create with. Take a peek at my tutorial below:
Step 1: Using a foam tool, apply Lilac Lavender Embellishment Mousse to edges of wooden box, chipboard abstract heart and “Love” chipboard from the Words of Christmas Chipboard Set. Heat set and set aside.
Step 2: Trim patterned paper down to layering sizes and sand edges with sanding bar.
Step 3: Begin layering patterned papers together using adhesive.
Step 4: Create a card effect using coordinating patterned paper and adhere to Keepsake. Note: This effect adds an opportunity to add journaling and a sweet photo.
Step 5: Adhere velvet ribbon, focal layer, abstract heart and Love chipboard to the Keepsake.
Step 6: Add velvet bow and paper straws to the Keepsake.
Step 7: Punch hearts from patterned paper and adhere to the Keepsake. Add sentiment and pins.
Step 8: Add charm and tap on gesso to enhance the overall design. Note: I punched a 1 inch circle from coordinating patterned paper and cut it half. Each half was positioned at the top and bottom of the keepsake creating a tab effect.
Step 9: Continue embellishing as desired.
