How to make a quick greeting card

Hello!

Blessed Friday y’all!

I recently made a greeting card for a challenge and I wanted to share it with you. It was simple, quick and easy 🙂

The challenge was to use an intricate die to make a card. No shape dies or ornate frame dies were allowed. Here’s what I made…

I took a 5×8 inch card sheet and folded it in half to make a card of 5×4 inches. I used black card stock.

Next I cut out a mat from DCWV’s “everlasting love” .25 inches short in length and width

I then cut out a glitter sheet .25 inches shorter than the mat I cut out earlier. This made 2 layers of the card. See the image below.

From a silver metallic sheet, I cut out the die. 2019-06-27_21.22.35

Then I punched out a few flower shapes and leaves out of red and green card sheets.

They need to be shaped. I used my good old embossing tool for this.

I also snipped off the leaf punch to make two bunches of leaves.

I glued the layers of the flowers together to form a flower and added some beads for the centers of these flowers. Then I attached the leaves to either side of the bunch and Ta Da!

Here’s how it looked once I was done embellishing it.

So, what do you think? easy ..right? 🙂 The camera was unable to capture the bling of the glitter sheet and the metallic sheet properly. It is sparkling like crazy I tell you!

Have an awesome weekend!

Sana.
