Homemade Cards~Paper Crafting Thursday!

The winners of last week's paper crafting are Deb and Penny. Please email me your addresses and I'll get your prizes in the mail!
Card
Welcome to this week's homemade card project! This is a very simple card and you can get a lot of different looks depending on what paper you use.

Card
You will need a blank 5 1/2" x 4" notecard. Cover with a 5 1/4" x 3 3/4" piece of scrapbook paper.

Card
Glue a strip of ribbon, lace or paper across the front of card, as shown. I used hot glue.

Card
Cut a small circle from scrapbook paper. Cut with decorative scissors, if desired. Glue to middle of strip.

Card
I used a "pop dot" which is a foam adhesive to give it a 3D look.

Card
I also added a little pearl gem. Both of these items can be found in the scrapbook section of Michaels, Hobby Lobby or Walmart.

Card
Send to a friend!

I know that my craft may not be technically considered paper craft so please don't enter my name in the drawing. Gracen was so pleased with how it looked and wanted to share it on here (she's heard me talk about paper craft Thursday!)

Hi Kelli!
I like your card ideas!I have a question for you reguarding cards- My parents just had their 50th Wedding Anniversary and recieved tons of cards -- several are duplicates - for instance 1 particular card they received 27 of it!! My question is I really do not want to glue them in a scrapbook- Is there something neat we could do with the cards to make a special momento of their 50th Wedding Anniversary? If it were your parents cards what would you do? Okay thats 2 questions!!! :o)

Hello Kelli,

I have visited your blog on several occasions ~ what a lovely place you have here. There is SO much to see I don't think I'll ever catch up. I could have left a comment on every post I have read as each is filled with great thoughts and ideas.

I hope to be returning often!

Kelli said...

Hi Karyl! That is a lot of cards! What about a framed collage or shadow box? Here are a few picture ideas I found:

I would use the cards instead of pictures. Hope this helps!
