Did you know that today is the National Day of Encouragement? What a great reason to reach out to someone in your life and offer up a kind word! Today, we are going to show you a great way to elevate a card from one of our all inclusive kits, the Simply Friendship Card Making Kit. We love how easy this folio makes it to create 12 incredible cards that celebrate friendship. You can send anything from For A One Of A Kind Friend and Friends Forever to You Are The Best and more to brighten someone’s day. If you don’t have this amazing kit, then you are in luck. We have it on sale this week for you; what’s great is that everything you see below is inside!
Let’s make a card together!
To add a little extra dimension to your card, take 2 of the layers and create frames.
We left 1/2″inch on the cream layer with green flowers and 3/4″ inch on the purple floral layer.
Use your craft knife or scissors to cut.
Now you have 2 great frames that will create a look into your card.
Add the purple frame to your card base with foam adhesive.
Add your second (green) frame with foam adhesive.
It’s time to decorate. We have coordinating stickers and embellishments in each simply kit. You can’t go wrong with the mix and match design!
Start your collage in the bottom left of the card.
Keep building using an assortment of flowers and a sentiment. It’s time to send your card! The envelopes are in the folio for easy mailing.
You will make the prettiest cards with the Simply Friendship Card Making Kit, just add layers and decorate as you please.
Add ribbon around the card and tie the perfect bow.
Cluster flowers and add on top of a piece of ribbon.
Whether you keep the Simply Friendship Card Making Kit in your desk at work, and create as needed or make in an afternoon with a friend, you are sure to love this kit. If you are new to crafting, this is a great place to start and if you are a professional, then you will enjoy elevating these pretty cards. Refer back to this tutorial for the next week, and find it in our Finishing School Library afterwards. Much more awaits you in our community! If you haven’t reserved your spot for Create 9, time is running out! We would love for you to come craft with us for an unforgettable weekend.
