A few months ago a friend was sharing some card samples she had made from various classes, kits and her own personal creations. She had a number of cards I loved but one in particular caught my eye and fueled my imagination. It was a card that fits into an invitation, A2 envelope and “popped” up when opened so it stood on its own stand. I have seen similar cards in the past but have never made one so I borrowed hers, created a template in my photo editing software and made some Valentine Cards with my Scrap Girls digital scrapbooking supplies. I am providing the template so you can easily make your own.
Silhouette Cameo and/or scissors
Paper – linen card stock
Adhesive – two sided tape, E6000 glue
Embellishments – Printed & cut digital scrapbook embellishments, jewels, metal findings, fiber, acrylic paint, feathers
Rubber stamps (Pam Carriker, Traci Bautista), embossing powder, distress ink
Scoring board, ruler, bone folder, exacto knife
Step 2 – Print and cut embellishments with your Silhouette Cameo or with scissors. Print card base and mats. Cut with paper cutter. See – http://scrapgirls.com/blog/create-a-print-and-cut-card-with-digital-scrapbook-supplies-and-silhouette/
Step 3 – Score and fold along score lines. Cut a slit on cut line. Embellish mats/panel and base as much or as little as desired.
Step 4 – Adhere panel to card base. Insert panel through cut line. Adhere bottom of base with two-sided tape.
Step 5 – Insert in envelopes and give to family and friends.
I have a lot of traditional supplies and love the process of embellishing my digital layouts with a variety of mediums. You can also easily create these cards with only your digital supplies, adhesive, paper cutter and scissors. We would love to see how you use your Scrap Girls digital scrapbooking supplies to create your own Valentine Cards. Post them in the Scrap Girls Hybrid Gallery – http://scrapgirls.net/forum/gallery/category/284-calendars-hybrid-printable-projects/.
Live each day creatively,
