i believe in you

I want to share a step-by-step with you today featuring a card I recently created.

I know, I know…………you’re thinking, “a card created by Jill”?  I realize that cards aren’t really in my comfort zone (I’m more of a layout-girl), but I promise you that you will not be disappointed.  This card is as easy as 1-2-3.

Step-by-step:

1. Cut a 12×6 piece of cardstock and score in half (I used Kraft, my fave).  Now you have a 6×6 card base.

2. Cut a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of cardstock out of another colour.  Cut another piece of Kraft cardstock 5 1/4 x 5 1/4.  Attached to the card front.

3. Lightly spray with Glimmer Mist in your favourite colours.  Let dry.

4. Tear a thin strip of dictionary paper (yes…..right out of an old dictionary) and attach for a flower stem.  Cut 2 “leaves” from a pattern paper and doodle.  Stitch through both with your sewing machine.

5. Use adhesive decorative tape (I used FunTAPE by KikiArt) to make “grass” at the base of the stem.

6. Use your favourite mSB stamp sets to stamp on pre-made felt flowers/petals (I used Timelines).  Add a decorative button to the centre of the flower.  Attach to card.

7. Attach title stickers (or you could stamp this as well) to the card.  I also hand wrote the “you” of my title.

8. Attach a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of pattern paper to the inside of your card and stamp with the Sigh Gush Gasp stamp set.  Embellish.

9. Send card to someone special.

Here is another card I made using the same mSB stamp sets.

enjoy your day,
