Happiness is Handmade Card Making

Handmade cards are always an appreciated sight in the mailbox. Most of us have a little downtime between the holidays, now is the perfect time to send out “just because” and/or “thank you” cards.

I hope all of our readers that celebrate Christmas, had a wonderful holiday!  This paper collection sitting mostly untouched, so I decided to create a few cards. What I love about a paper collection, is that everything coordinates, and there are images and sentiments ready to use.

Happiness is Handmade Card Making by Latisha Yoast for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

For this card, I used some patterned paper, die cuts and adhesive, oh and a card base!

Creating Handmade

  1. Create an A2 sized card base which is 4.25 x 5.5 in.
  2. Trim the patterned paper to fit the card front with a little bit of border on all four sides (aka card panel). Then adhere the card panel to the card front using MyStik® Permanent Strips Dispenser.
  3. Adhere scalloped rectangle die cut to the card using Crafty Foam Tape White for some dimension.
  4. Adhere various shaped die cuts using 3D Foam Squares White, Regular for more dimension and interest.

Although it’s a simple add of 3D Foam products, it gives a sweet card like this a little something to wow your recipient 🙂

Are you familiar with the MyStik® Permanent Strips Dispenser? I love its features from three different options to dispense adhesives, personalize case and a self-closing dispenser.

See a short video on how this adhesive works…
