Mini Easter Card

This fabulous little mini Easter card is easy to replicate if you have a lot of Easter cards to send out.

What you will need to make this card:

1. Square 3″ x 3″ White Card Blank
2. Gold metallic card or paper
3. Orange card
4. Easter Designs #2 Peel Off Sheet – Yellow
5. Craft Knife, Ruler & Craft cutting mat & Pencil
6. Precision decoupage scissors
7. Lever Corner Rounder Punch – Regular
8. Double Sided Sticky Tape
9. Sticky Foam Pads

How to make this card:

Use the craft cutting mat, craft knife and ruler to cut a square frame out of the gold metallic card or paper that is exactly the right size to fit on to the front of the card blank, the inner square of the gold frame should be 5.5cm square. Stick this gold frame to the front of the card blank using double sided sticky tape.

Next stick a yellow Easter image peel off sticker to the orange card (we used orange card from a mixed bright colours pack of card). Use the decoupage scissors to carefully cut round the outside of the peel off image. Use sticky foam pads to stick this easter image in the top middle of the gold frame.

Take a yellow Happy Easter wording peel off sticker and stick this in the bottom middle of the gold frame.

Lastly use the corner rounder punch to round all four corners of the card blank.

Tip: If you want the frame to have a raised 3D look too make sure you use gold card and not paper and use sticky foam pads to attach it to the card blank instead of double sided tape.

Mother’s Day Flower Basket

This is a really pretty Mother’s Day Card. Change the peel off sticker wording to use this card for another occasion.

What you need to make this card:

1. 180 gsm Or Lighter Card
2. Card Maker Board
3. Die-Cut Decoupage Sheet – Teapot/Heart Roses/Flower Basket #875
4. Hearts & Flowers Borders Peel Off Sheet – Diamond Gold
5. Happy Mother’s Day Peel Off Sheet – Gold
6. Crafty Edger Decorative Border Punch
7. Gold Mirror Card
8. 15mm Organza Ribbon Baby Pink
9. Sticky Foam Pads
10. Double Sided Sticky Tape
11. Craft Glue
12. Craft knife, cutting mat, ruler, scissors

How to make this card:

Make an A6 card blank using the 180 gsm card and the card maker board.

Punch a decorative border down the right hand side of the front flap of the card blank using the crafty edger decorative border punch.

Cut a section of the gold mirror card large enough to go at the back of the front flap of the card blank and over the back of the decorative border. Use double sided sticky tape to attach the mirror card behind the front flap so the gold shows through the punched border. This will also strengthen the card blank.

Use a border sticker from the Diamond Gold Hearts & Flowers Borders Peel Off Sheet and apply it to the left hand side of the card blank.

Take the basket of flowers decoupage image from the die-cut decoupage sheet and using sticky foam pads build the image up at the bottom of the card blank.

Using the 15mm baby pink organza ribbon, tie a ribbon bow and use craft glue to attach the ribbon bow to the decoupage flower basket.

Take a Happy Mother’s Day wording peel off sticker and carefully snip the words apart so they are separate. Apply the words across the top of the card blank.
