Correct Me, Baby!

Welcome to this month's Designer Crafts Connection Blog Hop!!!

This month's theme is love projects :) To continue on the hop, just click on the “Hop Forward” link on the button above.

Need a quick card for the big day? This card is actually one you can START while you're at work at the office. All you need is a little cardstock and some Correction Tape!

Fold the cardstock to create a card base. Cutting an 8.5×11 piece of cardstock into two 5.5″ x 8.5″ pieces will yield two cards. Next, create a pattern on the card front using the Correction Tape.  I chose to create a diagonal plaid pattern. It is okay if the correction tape is not perfect — it makes the card look distressed. To get a perfect line, run the Correction Tape in the pattern slowly–fast, loose actions will result in the distressed look I achieved on this card.

Add more lines to the pattern using a Tombow Dual Brush Pen and baker's twine or yarn. Adhere baker's twine in place with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. Add stickers and punched paper hearts. Brush the edges of the card with the brush end of a Tombow Dual Brush Pen for an aged effect. No one will ever know that you started this card in your office, not the craft room!
