Forever Friends Handmade Gift Card Step by Step

Hello Everyone,

Today I am sharing a card tutorial step by step with you.  I make so many cards but often don't have time or don't remember to take photos of the step by step process.  So this time I have.  For many card makers it might be self explanatory but I will just briefly highlight the steps as I do in my card kits.  As a sidenote there are heaps of photos in this step by step..


Forever Friends Handmade Gift Card Step by Step


Patterned papers, rub ons, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch, ribbon and twine

Step 1.
Cut yourself a card base of white cardstock, fold in half.  My card is a C6 size
Then cut patterned paper of choice and mount onto the card front.  My patterned paper measures 9.5 x 13.5cm

Also cut another patterned paper like the musical paper  below from Kaisercraft, this one measures 7.5cm x 8.5cm.  Ink around the papers with Tim Holtz distress ink and a sponge dauber.

Step 2.

Cut a length of  pink polkadot ribbon to wrap around your smaller patterned paper.  Pop double sided tape on the back and loop around from the back, across the front and then back around.

Cut a long length of twine and wrap several times around and the make a bow on the side of the paper.  You will need to leave some length at the start to be able to tie up your bow.

Step 3.

Select some rub ons, I used the kaisercraft hummingbird rub ons.
Cut the portion you want to use and then tranfer.  See close up above.  Once this is done mount this patterned paper to the card front.  I added mine to the side on the right, see first photo for placement.

Step 4.

I then used the same rub ons for the title of this card.  I transfered a portion of the rub ons and the forever friends onto white cardstock.  I then cut a frame of pink cardstock around that and then add sentiment as shown.

Step 5.

Punch out two butterflies with the Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch.  Mount them one on top of the other.  I used Bazzill Bling Snow White paper to give the butterflies some shiny sheen.

That's all there is to it, done!!
