If you don’t have the same tools as me, improvise with what you do have.
Sticking down the thin strips is easy, stick some double sided tape to the back of the card before cutting out and it makes the job so much easier.
While Spring is making up its mind, I thought it would be great to make a bright card that is ideal for any occasion but great for your Mum to cheer her up on Mother’s Day. I hope you like it.
1. Take a square white card and using a swirly stamp and light green ink, stamp a few motifs randomly on the front.
2. Using the Everywhere Square window punch, take a strip of orange lightweight card and punch 3 apertures equally spaced apart. * if you don’t have this punch you can use a ruler and craft knife to cut out these apertures. Cut the orange card so it fits the width of the card.
3. Take a boarder punch, I used the rainbow interchangeable boarder punch, and punch out 2 strips and attach them to the back of the orange card. Then attach this to the front of your card using foam pads.
4. Punch out 3 heart shapes, I used the scalloped heat squeeze punch, and stick them in between the apertures, randomly, with a few more foam pads.
5. To finish off, take some thin strips of the orange card and attach then to the top of the card and embellish with some sticky gem stones. Complete with a greeting.
I loved making this really quick and easy card and I’m sure that I Mum will be really pleased with it too.
