Typed Love Notesby Karen Oliver
It took me a little while to come up with this idea. I knew I wanted to make a pretty card to show off the typewriter. I die cut the typewriter in brown and pushed out all the keys. I placed double sided tape on the back and cut another in white then placed it on top of the brown one and carefully using a pin pushed the white keys out onto the double sided tape below. I know I could have just used white card underneath but I wanted the keys to look like they were sitting above the base which I think I achieved doing it this way. I then cut a small piece of white card and carefully cut along the back of the typewriter so the paper looked like it was in the roller.
I chose some patterned paper with a retro feel and with a bit of red so I could accent it with the heart and XO from the Valentine Confetti die. I also used my absolute favourite Scalloped Border Trio die to cut the lacy edge. Add a contrasting brown bow and there you have a pretty card that shows off the typewriter beautifully.
Retro Cool is such a fun release.
