So recently I had to make several cards for family birthdays, graduations and Mother's Day. I haven't had the chance to do some crafting in forever it feels like (with 2 kids occupying most of my time). I forgot how much I enjoyed it! Anyway, here is how I made this birthday card:
I started out by stamping some kraft gift tags I had laying around. Finally got to use them as well as the birthday stamp I got a while back. I used two different stamps: rubber stamp and a cling stamp. I love using both kinds. I also used a black Versafine ink stamp pad.
I buy the package of blank greeting cards from Hobby Lobby including the craft paper. I used a paper cutter to cut out the background paper and the smaller paper that will fit inside the larger one. Then I attach them together using a tape runner. I love using these! So easy to use and when you run out you just pop in a refill.
Next I place ribbon around the card using the tape runner and tie the ends into a knot. Then I attach the paper to the actual greeting card using the taper runner.
Next I use glue dots to place the kraft tag onto the paper. I also use the glue dots to stick the butterfly and leaf embellishment.
