Handmade Card Tutorial
Hello! Today, I'm sharing the instructions for an Autumn greeting card, but you can use any kind of scrapbook paper, stickers, or rubber stamps.
Gather your supplies. My 10 Top Card Making Essentials list is HERE.
Cut a 5 3/8" x 3 7/8" rectangle of scrapbook paper. Glue to front of 5 1/2" x 4" blank notecard.
Cut 2 strips from coordinating paper or cardstock:
-5 3/8" x 1 1/2"
-3 7/8" x 1 1/2"
Trim sides with decorative scissors, if desired.
Punch two holes beside each other (approx. 1 1/2" in from left side of long strip), thread ribbon through, tie knot, and trim ends. You can also attach ribbon knot with hot glue instead.
Glue paper strips to front of card, as shown. I also shaded the edges with ink.
Stamp an image (or use stickers) on an approx. 1 3/4" square of cardstock.
Glue to card, as shown. Send to a friend! You can see more card tutorials HERE.
A few more things I made recently...
Gift tags with my favorite Autumn quote.
Christmas gift tags. It will be here before we know it!
I also put together some organza gift bags and gift tags for those giving paper goods as Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers this year.
Everything can be found in my Etsy Shop! Thank you for stopping by for a visit!
