Handmade Cards, Paper Crafting and a *GIVEAWAY!*
Welcome to this week's card making project!
Gather your tools and supplies. You will need a 5 1/2" x 4" blank notecard, cardstock, scrapbook paper, stickers (or rubber stamp) and ribbon.
Glue a 5 1/4" x 3 3/4" piece of scrapbook paper to front of blank notecard.
Cut a 5 1/4" x 1 3/4" strip of cardstock. Trim the bottom edges with decorative scissors or use a paper punch.
Glue to front of card, as shown. I also shaded the edges with a foam ink pad.
Tie a 15" length of ribbon around card and tie a knot. Trim ends.
Cut a 2 1/2" square of cardstock. Cut a slightly smaller square and add sticker or stamp. Glue to larger square. These exact measurements may vary depending on your sticker or stamp.
Glue to front of card. Send to a friend!
Happy Birthday version.

Here are a few more things I've made this week...
There was an Estate sale on the way to our camp site this past weekend and I found some vintage wrapping paper...perfect for stickers!
Thank you cards for special teachers.
A final batch of Mother's Day cards. It's less than 2 weeks away!
