I love making cards. No surprise here. I rarely ever have enough time in my day to sit down and whip out cards. Ideally I would love to have a stock pile of premade cards instead of having to throw together a card on a whim right before someones birthday or event. A few weekends ago we had a rainy Saturday and as Mr. Woodsy lounged on the couch I went to town making cards. I’ve never had the time to make a handmade card for a giveaway winner and since I had to mail out their prize I wanted to enclose a sweet handmade card. So that is exactly what I did–oh and it helped that I found this cute “congrats” stamp in the dollar bin at Michaels!
(1) 5.5 in x 4.25in card, red
DCWV Summer Dreams
On a piece of recycled cardstock I stamped “congrats”. Let it dry completely before you do anything with this — mine took about 5 minutes.
I then cut the recycled card stock down to the size I wanted it and placed it on top of blue card stock. I sewed a straight single stitch around the recycled card stock using red thread.
Next up, time to trim the blue card stock to size.
I cut a piece of the DCWV Summer Dreams cardstock to fit the size of the card. I then ran it through Xyron 5 inch create-a-sticker.
Next up, I placed a coordinating sheet of the DCWV Summer Dreams using the Purple Cows 9 Blade Trim It.
Run the piece of cardstock through the Xyron 2.5 inch create-a-sticker.
Place the green dotted paper in the center of the card. Then place 3-D adhesive foam dots on the dark blue cardstock.
Place the navy blue cut out on top of the card.
This card is perfect for any celebratory occasion!
