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.
For this card, I used some patterned paper, die cuts and adhesive, oh and a card base!
- Create an A2 sized card base which is 4.25 x 5.5 in.
- 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.
- Adhere scalloped rectangle die cut to the card using Crafty Foam Tape White for some dimension.
- 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.
