When I was shopping for Valentine's Day earlier this month, this sweet card caught my eye. I knew it would make the most adorable paperweight.
Large Rectangle Paperweight Kit, a Mary Engelbreit card, and some double-stick foam tape. I also used something PhotoWeights just introduced, a display area template. These templates are reusable and available for just 50-cents each.
My challenge with the greeting card was the fact that there were several inches of space between the little girl and the heart-shaped balloon (as you can see in the photo above). I easily solved this problem by cutting out the balloon and placing it closer to the girl. The balloon was attached with double-stick foam tape, raising it about 1/8" above the background. This transformed it into a dimensional embellishment
The next time you find yourself walking down the greeting card aisle of your local store, spend a few moments looking through the hundreds of greeting card designs that are available. Which ones will you want to capture in a paperweight?
