Handmade Cards ~ Paper Crafting Wednesday!

Card
Welcome to this week's handmade card project!

Card
Cut a 10" x 6 1/2" piece of cardstock. Fold in towards the center at the 2 1/2" mark on both sides. A bone folder comes in handy with this step.

Card
I stamped the flaps with a script stamp and shaded the edges with a foam ink pad, but you can also leave them blank.

Paper
Cut two 6" x 2" strips of scrapbook paper.

Card
Glue to front of card, as shown.

Card
Tie closed with a 24" ribbon bow. Send to a friend!

Card
A pink version.

~More Handmade Cards and Instructions~


A few more things I've made recently...
Gift tags

Gift tags
Coffee stained tags. They smell good! :0)

Garden Journal
A gardening journal, just in time for spring!

Items can be found in my Etsy Shop! Thank you for stopping by for a visit!


Paper Craft Fun: Post any kind of paper craft (card, bookmark, tag, banner, journal, etc.) on your blog between now and next week and come sign Mr. Linky. Next Wednesday, I will draw two of the names and the winners will receive supplies for a homemade card: blank notecard, envelope, and an assortment of scrapbook paper, stickers (or stamped images), and ribbon. Link back here in your post, so that others will know where to join in the fun, too!

Links are now closed. Please join us next week!

Kelli, your paper crafts are always so beautiful. I love the script background. I do a lot of digital scrapbooking, and I've been thinking about creating a digital paper with a soft script background.

Just 2 questions...... do you ship your etsy shop items to Australia? Also, where do you think I could find some ink stamps like the ones you use? Thanks!! Hope you are having a lovely week :)

Kelli I love this idea! It's great to see you haven't lost your creative touch! (Where do all these ideas come from! - amazing!) It's been a while since I visited owing to our change in circumstances. You've got an Etsy shop now! Well it's about time! ;) I hope it's going really well for you. Lovely to be in touch again.

Rebecca said...

Audrey said...

Your cards are really cute. I love them.

Mimi Sue said...

Great cards, great tags. When you coffee stain the tags do you do it after you stamp or before? Do you leave the tags in very long? Does tea work? Did I ask you enough questions? Mimi

Sarahlcc♥ said...

Hello, Kelli. I hope you join you next week for papercrafting, although I am still having problems viewing the linkies. I have no idea why and am in contact with them. Thank you for sharing the lovely cards with us!

nancy said...

They all look wonderful, Kelli. You have a real sense for combining the elements to make beautiful, elegant creations. I'm still struggling with cards!

Leanne said...

First time here. I noticed your Show and Tell Friday at Janmary's and came over.

Those cards are stunning. I would love to make cards like this for friends and family, in fact you may have inspired me to give it a go.

And if you don't mind I may jump in to Show and Tell next Friday.
