Crafty Wednesday / Card Design #3



This week I remembered, hooray!

This card does not require any fancy tools, just a paper cutter and a corner rounder.


  • green card blank
  • 5 1/4” x 4” blue cardstock
  • 3 - 3” x 1.5” strips from a large patterned paper
  • 4.75” x 1” pink cardstock
  • 4.75” x .5” pink cardstock
  • 5 buttons
  • 10” thin blue ribbon
  • blue ink

Round ALL the corners (except top two on smaller pink strip). Ink the blue cardstock, three front strips, and pink strip that goes on the front (hold the ink pad in your dominant hand and the paper in your non-dominant, brush the ink pad on the edge of the paper away from you just on the edge. The more you tilt the ink toward the front of the paper, the more ink you’ll be able to see).

Glue the blue cardstock onto the front, then the patterned pieces, then the pink piece. Then glue on the buttons. Tie the ribbon around the top of the card blank.

On the inside of the card, glue the pink strip on the bottom, then glue on the buttons.

As a side note, the reason you want a large patterned paper for the front is because then it gives a nice illusion of the pattern still being connected.

If you want a sentiment on the front, it would fit nicely on the pink strip :)
