Hello crafter's! How are you all?

I'm back with another tutorial showing you how to use your pretty papers from your craft stash. I absolutely love the outcome of this card. The soft muted tones are a bit of me ❤️

This is another simple card with maximum effect. Without further ado, let's get to it!

I started by creating my card blank. For this project, I used Green card for my card base. Typically, I use a white card base but I have to keep reminding myself I really do love a coloured card base. I then cut a layer of pink card approx 3mm smaller round each edge than this card front. For all card used, I colour coordinated them to compliment the colours in the paper I went on to use, which was these cute rainbows from the 'Making Memories First Edition 6in Paper pad'

I then trimmed my rainbow paper down to approx 3mm smaller than the pink layer. I stuck my rainbow layer down to my pink layer using wet adhesive. I DIDN'T STICK THIS DOWN TO MY CARD BLANK YET.

I wrapped some super fine gold metallic twine round these layers and tied in a bow to the front. NOW, I adhered these layers to my card base using wet glue.

TOP TIP: Using wet glue and applying flat to a card is not something I would usually do when using string/twine/ribbon as it would make the card bow. Typically, I would use a foam tape. However, this thread was no greater than a hairs width so wouldn't impact the structure.

Using the same pink card as my middle card layer, I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment. I trimmed this down to approx 1in deep and the same width as the pink card layer. I stuck this down to my card using foam tape.


This is now complete!

Until next time,

take care. Love, Dani xx
