DIY Moments: Vol. 16 No. 6
We’re big believers in snail mail and love any excuse to send cards to anyone and everyone. This cute card making craft is just the excuse we needed to not only get crafty, but to also send a playful card for a friend’s birthday. Get the how-to below!
What You’ll Need
Stamp hooray with charcoal chalk ink using the informal letter set, with each letter on a different color cardstock – we used fuchsia, coral, papaya, sunshine, mint and pool
Punch out each letter with the banner punch
Line the letters up in order (about an 1/8” apart) and dab a little tacky glue along the top. Adhere to a piece of bakers twine, leaving about an 1” overlap on each end
Fill in the center of the letters with quickie glue and sprinkle glitter on them (you can also use stickles or soufflé pens)
Cut a 4 ¼” x 6” panel of the Sprinkles Wrap and adhere it to the front of your folded card with the tape runner
Stamp “hip” on coral cardstock using the Versamark ink. Coat with black embossing powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. Repeat the same steps on fuchsia cardstock
Cut out “hip” “hip” into banner shapes – roughly 1 ¼” x 3 ¾”
Cut two strips of washi slightly shorter than the banners
Adhere the washi to the card as shown and then mount the hip-hip banners over them using foam squares
Use washi tape to mount the hooray banner to the inside of the card as shown
Use the A6 envelope liner template to trace and cut a liner out of fuchsia paper
Insert and adhere the liner to the envelope with a tape runner
