Eco Park Valentines day cards

Here are the rest of the cards that we made on Saturday.
I am only giving a short description with each card.
Remember to spray the pink pattern paper with the glue and then
place the tissue paper over it. Use a decoupage roller to secure the
two papers. Then spray the pink paper with glimmer mist.

Dye the seam binding tape with an ink.
We used Dylusions ink spray.
For a more subtle colour, wash out most of the ink before you let it dry.
The doily was first sprayed with glimmer mist
and when it was dry we sprayed the back with glue.
It is just easier to stick it down. 
Nothing fancy on this card, just spray the doily with glue and stick it down.
Use tissue tape to make the washi tape that fits around the bottom of the envelope.
First ruffle the tissue paper and then place it on the double sided tape.
Place the ruffle on the stripy paper and put it inside the envelope.
Tie the seam binding ribbon and the bakers twine around the pink paper
and the envelope.
