Something Cheery

5 Oct

It’s Monday. It’s staying dark longer in the morning. It’s raining! I thought something cheery would be fun to share with you. Here is a card I made using several Spellbinders™ die templates and some springy papers. (I really do love fall, just tired this morning and need some levity.)

Add some distressing and some hole punching, layer it up and you got it.

Important Stuff: Wizard, S5-006 Curved Rectangles, S4-166 Ric Rac Borderabilities®, S4-138 Petite Ovals Large (Spellbinders); Blue brads (Creative Impresions), Glue Dots, Crop-a-Dile (We R Memory Keepers)
Other Stuff: Pink patterned paper (Sonshine), Magenta chalk ink, Flower paper (Karen Foster Design)

Instructions (feel free to customize, of course. I didn’t add dimensions so you can create this any size):

  1. Create a card base that is longer in the back than in the front.
  2. Cut a strip of paper that will fit the width and is about half the height
  3. Cut the edge with S6-166 Ric Rac Border. Do not emboss.
  4. Punch holes along the cut edge at the indentations from the scallop, as shown.
  5. Cut a strip of white core paper or cardstock for the center strip. Crumple it, adding many ridges.
  6. Press the ridges “flat” using your fingers and sand over the top of it.
  7. Cut/Emboss S5-006 Curved Rectangles die template, chossing a size.
  8. Cut/Emboss S4-138 Petite Ovals Large, choosing a size.
  9. Stamp sentiment onto Oval.
  10. Ink oval and card edges.
  11. Assemble card: layering elements and adding brads as shown.

See, don’t you feel more cheery now? I know I do.

Now off to dinner with my family. See you all soon, Eli
