There is so much sentiment and meaning behind a card.
There is even more if you create the card yourself!
It doesn’t have to be difficult. (…and, really it is not!)
Start with a card base. I usually use cardstock for this, so that it is sturdy.
Layer on a few stickers or embellishments, and WAAAA-LA! You have yourself a beautiful card! Personally, I believe that layering is the key to beauty when making a card. Use those foam squares between each layer! Just take a look at the dimension.
To create the cards below, you will need:
- Natural Elegance Paper Pack
- Natural Elegance Embellishments
- Natural Elegance Stickers
- Natural Elegance Slide-Ins
- Hello Baby Cardstock
- Custom Cutting System-Circles
- 12″ Straight Trimmer
