Hi everyone, Yvonne here with an all-occasion card, using school-themed papers! Can you tell? Thought it would be nice to use this card when corresponding with a teacher, school staff or administrator. Using Creative Photo Corners Gold and Metallic Foil adds a sparkling touch to the card. It’s very easy to make. Let me share my process with you.
Make the School Days Card Panel
Start by trimming 2 pieces of patterned paper to the same width. Adhere both pieces onto a green card panel using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.
Fussy cut a pencil border from patterned paper. Then adhere to the card panel with the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.
Wrap a piece of green satin ribbon around the card panel and secure the ends to the back of the panel using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.
Place the card panel onto a white card base with the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.
Embellishing with the Creative Photo Corners
Now for the fun part! Embellish the School Days card with Creative Photo Corners Gold. It is a unique way to create interest on a card front. Simply tuck them under the satin ribbon on both the top and bottom sides of the ribbon.
Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside Concept
This concept brings the adhesives from between the layers of papers to the outside to create an embellishing element! No more hiding! Let me show you…
Place some Adhesive Dots Micro on the centers of the designs leaving the liners on until ready for the next step. Pick a gold color from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Holographic Colors. Cut the sheet into a small piece just enough to cover the area.
Remove the liners from the adhesive dots and place the foil color side UP over them. Gently rub with your fingertips to transfer the color. Remove the foil and done! No special machine or tool. If you see any missed areas, simply reapply with the foil.
Lastly, adhere a satin bow to the card with Crafty Power Tape Dispenser 81ft.
Voilá the School Days All Occasion Card is ready! Designer Tip: Add a sentiment to the card to turn it into a specific occasion card.
Wishing you happy crafting!
