Simple Card Making by Guest Designer Gina Hanson

Nothings easier than picking up a package of Studio g blank cards at your local CWH to make cards for any occasion, here I'm using this "Summer Honeycomb" kit put together by Craft Warehouse.

Supplies used:
  · Studio Calico - Classic Calico: Frequency
· Teresa Collins - Everyday Moments: Ornate Flourishes, Sentiments
· Teresa Collins - Carolina Breeze: McKay
· Teresa Collins - Blingage: Taylor's Clips
· American Crafts - DIYthickers: Poolside

Additional Supplies: (that can be purchased at your local Craft Warehouse)
· (grey) Cardstock
· Studio g - i·craft Blank Cards
· Lawn Fawn clear Stamps - Hello Friend
· Studio Calico - Wood Veneer: Butterflies
· Teresa Collins - Everyday Moments: Buttons
· American Crafts - Ribbon
· Queen & Co. - Pearls
· Vellum

Step #1

Using a blank card from Studio g as you card base . . . trim a piece of patterned paper to 3 3/4" x 5 3/4" to use as the background on your card. Go ahead and cut (3) more this exact size to use on your other (3) cards, set aside. Using a corner rounder, round all four corners.

Step #2

Decide on the sizes of circles you wish to use on your cards, cut and emboss using Spellbinders die templates.

Step #3

Trim a coordinating piece of patterned paper to 2 x 4", round the two bottom corners.

Step #4

Choose and stamp a sentiment using one of the Lawn Fawn sentiment stamps, cut and emboss using a Spellbinders circle die template.

Cut from several different patterned paper some banners varying in lengths.

Step #5

Take on the Teresa Collins - Taylor's Clips and pop off the rhinestone.

Step #6

Arrange all the little pieces of cut patterned papers and attach the rhinestone to the center of a wood veneer butterfly using a 3-D pop dot.

For your remaining cards . . .

Trim a piece of coordinating (blue) patterned paper and adhere across the center of your card. Gather your finishing touches and arrange on your card.

Cut a another strip from a coordinating piece of patterned paper, round the corners and adhere to the top of your card background. Now, if you've never used these little microbeads before, you'll need to make sure your pouring them over your sticky letters into some type of dish, otherwise you'll have quite the mess to clean up! ;) Gather all your embellishments to put the finishing touches on your card.

Again, select a sentiment to stamp onto the face of your card. Cut and emboss all Spellbinder die templates you'd like use and gather all other embellishments for the finishing touches on your card.
