Have A Great Time Card



Following numerous requests for project instructions, here is another simple card created from a few basic crafting supplies. This card is suitable to send to someone who is leaving a job, going travelling, going on vacation. However, you could also change the greeting for a completely different occasion, such as a birthday or anniversary and the design would work equally well.

You Will Need:
Patterned Paper
Ribbon
Large Floral Cardstock Stickers
Adhesive Gem Stones
Peel-Off Text Stickers
Permanent Marker Pen (Optional - to colour the stickers)
Corner Rounding Punch
Paper Glue
Paper Trimmer
Double Sided Tape
Scissors

Instructions:

  1. Cut a piece of patterned paper just under half the width of your card and glue along the top (spine) edge of a long white card.
  2. Round the corners of the card with a corner rounding punch.
  3. Colour the peel-off stickers (if necessary) with permanent marker pens, whilst it is still on the backing sheet. Colour to co-ordinate with your patterned paper. Apply the wording to the bottom right of the card.
  4. Stick a piece of ribbon along the join where the patterned paper meets the card.
  5. Add a spattering of floral cardstock stickers across the remainder of the card. Allow some to overlap the edges for professional results and trim off excess at the edges.
  6. Attach adhesive gem stones to the centres of the flowers for extra sparkle.


Tip of the month: Attach ribbons to your card using a dry adhesive such as double sided tape or an edge-to-edge adhesive such as a Xyron machine loaded with an adhesive cartridge, rather than using a wet glue which will seep through the ribbon.
