I've heard a lot of people say "I wish I was creative so I could make stuff like that" or "If I was a crafty person, I would make some of those things!" I'm here to tell you that with just a few very basic tools and a simple layout, YOU can make cute handmade cards that you can be proud to give to anyone! Let's not waste anytime and jump right in!
~1 Paper Trimmer
~3 Sheets of colored cardstock 8 1/2" x 11" is all that you need here
~1 Piece of matching, printed cardstock 8 1/2" x 11" also works for this
~Scrapbook Adhesive (or what you have on hand)
~Rubber Stamp and ink of your choice; You could always purchase a sticker if you don't have or don't want to invest in a rubber stamp!
~Embellishment of your choice ( I chose the blue flower)
I thought I was going to use the sheet of rhinestone stickers, but decided against it later, so just ignore those little guys.
Cut your card stock mats 1/4" smaller than the previous mat. Play around with the color combinations until you find something you are happy with. If you are using the same size card as I have here then your measurements will be as follows:
Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Layer 1: 4" x 5 1/4"
Layer 2: 3 3/4" x 5"
Layer 3: 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"
Well, I gotta get back at the madness that is my crafting space, so have a great Sunday everyone and as always...
