You're So Sweet Card Tutorial

Hello and good morning...

It's Wendi here, and I'm sharing with you a tutorial from a card that I recently made using the April All Year Cheer Card kit...

Here is the finished card:

Let's get started:

  • Cut your cardstock base to create a 4 x 7" card (so cut it to 8 x 7")
  • Cut your base patterned paper to 3 3/4 x 6 3/4"

Next you'll want to cut out three papers that will turn into your "envelopes"

  • Cut three 1 3/4 x 1 1/4" squares and then three strips of 1 3/4 x 3/4"

Take your smaller strips and then cut one side into a triangular shape, those will be the "envelope" tops:

Adhere down the triangles onto the squares and you will have created your "envelopes"

You'll want to start laying out your card and getting things ready to glue down. Add a sheet of notebook/ledger paper and tear at the bottom:

So it should look like this:

You will then add your sentiment and a bit of twine on it for a bit of texture:

And for a final touch, add a strip of stitching down the bottom for a bit of pop:

And you are done!!!

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day....

How cute is that?  This card and six more were created using the April Card Kit.  Each kit comes with complete instructions for all the cards Wendi creates.  Join autoship today and start making up a stash of hand-made sentiments for all your occasions this year.

Happy Thursday,
