{Card Making} Heartfelt Thanks Card

Heartfelt Thanks Card

You guys, I’m in love with this card. I’m also slightly obsessed with the new Classics Box of Cards from The Paper Studio. Uber modern and sets the tone for perfect card making for any occasion. I made this card for my friend Melissa from Jelly Design Studio. Last month, you might recall that I got a bright and airy blog redesign. Melissa was the one to thank for that, and I couldn’t help but make her a card to really share my gratitude for all her hard work!

First you’ll want to place your stamp on the ink pad and get it wet with ink. Then stamp the paper you’ll want it to be on. I chose a dark color since I was using a silver (light) ink.

This is what it looked like after my first try. I love this stamp and stumbled across it in the $1 stamp bin at Michaels!

Next up, trim it to size. I left about a quarter inch on each side so I could stitch around it!

I ran the purple cut out through my Xyron 5 inch create-a-sticker machine.

Then place the purple cut out on to a piece of white linen paper.

I trimmed the paper, again.

Once I had the signature piece completed I worked on creating a “belly band” for the card. I used my Purple Cows 9 Blade Trim It to cut a zig zag pattern.

I trimmed the metallic card stock with scissors to fit the front of the card.

Then I ran it through my Xyron 2.5 inch create-a-sticker machine. *If you don’t own one of these and you paper craft… you are missing out on the world!

I pealed the sticker backing off the paper and stuck it on my card.

Next up, the fun part! Sewing on paper. I chose to sew a zig zag stitch around the purple card stock. I love sewing on paper and constantly remind myself that imperfections are ok.  I.e., not sewing a straight line!

I used a seam ripper to remove the excess threads from the card.

You thought we were done? Not a chance. I took that scrap piece of metallic card stock, ran it through the Xyron 2.5 inch create-a-sticker machines and place it in the inside of the card!

Card is finished and as you can see can be easily made even if you don’t have a die cutting machine!

You can kind of see the metallic paper in the inside of the card.
