Love Where You're At - Guest Designer Judy Hayes

Hello everyone! Judy Hayes here, back with a card to share this time.


Today, I chose an inspirational verse,Love where youre at, for this card. I really like this verse. It could be used for a birthday card, encouragement or even congratulations on a milestone in oneslife. The huge popularity of black board lookinspired me to try the verse in white on black card stock. I like the black board look yet chose not to add dusty white around the edges, just a few specks of stray embossing powder!
Here’s how to make it:
  • Start with a 4 1⁄4 x 6ʺ white card. Cut 4 1⁄8 x 5 7⁄8ʺ piece of black cardstock. Emboss with Spellbinders Cane Weave 3D folder using Grand Calibur machine. Fasten to card front.
  • Cut and emboss white card stock with Spellbinders Labels Thirty-One #6 (#1 being the smallest). Use foam applicator to apply Distress Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain inks along the edges. The center wont show so theres no need to ink it. Fasten to card.
  • Cut white card stock with Spellbinders Nobel Rectangle #5 & 6 nested together. Use low tack tape to keep dies in place when cutting. After cutting, keep cardstock and dies in place. Then align Nobel Rectangle #4 with 5 and 6 and emboss with all in place. This adds the pattern of Nobel Rectangle #4 without cutting the edge. Apply Spun Sugar and then Victorian Velvet inks with foam applicator. Again the center wont show so theres no need to put any ink there.
  • Stamp verse with Versamark ink on black cardstock and heat emboss with white embossing powder. Center Labels Twenty-Nine #4 over verse and hold in place with low tack tape. Cut out using Grand Calibur® machine. Use 3D foam squares to fasten verse to pink rectangle leaving space along bottom of label for seam binding to fit under label.



  • Cut and emboss Nobel Rectangle # 2 from white card stock. Apply Victorian Velvet ink. Cut in half. Fasten each half to ends of verse label. Fasten small white brads at each end. Use adhesive to fasten all to card front.
  • Apply small amount of Spun Sugar ink to white seam binding by pressing ink pad direct to it. Crumple ribbon and repeat with ink pad. Mist with water. Wad ribbon into ball and roll in hands to disperse ink. This also gives the seam binding the nice crumpled texture. Dry with heat tool. Wrap seam binding around card sliding it under the label and tie in loose bow. Trim ends.

Thanks for visiting! I hope Ive inspired you in some way with this card.
