Here is the sketch to inspire all!
After seeing the card, I had a ton of ideas floating around in my head. Its a very simple design which can easily be adapted for any occassion.
Since Halloween is just around the corner and I had just gotten some fun new Doodlebug supplies,I decided to do a Halloween card.
The hardest part to making this card was to decide what fun pattern papers to choose and what to use as my embellishment.
Here is the list of supplies you will need to make my card:
1- 5x7- Kraft Card
1- 4.75x6.75 piece of white cardstock
4-Coordinating pattern papers
4- Fun embellishments that relate to your theme
Some Bakers twine
Adhesive, Paper Trimmer, a Paper Piercer, and a border or strip punch
How To Instructions:
First I started by cutting my white piece of cardstock. I then found some coordinating papers to use as my strips along the card. I used a 6x6 paper pad so I then cut 4- 1.5 inch strips of pattern papers.
I then took my Tonic Simplicity Border Punch – Scalloped Arc Border
Punch along both sides of your strips to create this design for the card. I then lined them up on the white piece of cardstock and trimmed off any excess paper that overhung the edges. This made for a precise edge with out any guessing or measuring on how long the strip needed to be exactly.
After the strips were in place I then placed my spider embellishments!
I then used a paper piercer to pierce a hole in the paper right above each spider this way I could thread the twine through the hole and adhere it to the back of the white with some adhesive. I then traveled the twine to the top of the card and folded it over the edge and then tucked that end down with some adhesive as well on the back. After everything was in place I took my sticker Happy Halloween and placed that down and then adhered the white cardstock to the kraft base card.
That is all that is to it, Very Easy which is nice for cards. I look forward to making other cards in different themes based on the sketch, I can easily see a nice winter one with snowflakes as the embellishment, or a baby card with stars as the embellishment.... so many choices!
I hope this has inspired you to make a card or two!
