Back to School Card: Beady Bus

By: Dena Lenham for Kreinik

Designing your own cards is easy when you have fun stickers and die cuts like these back-to-school designs. We simply embellished the images with double-sided Treasure Tape, colorful Kreinik metallic threads, and clear Diamond Beadlets for that extra sparkle. These make great gifts for a teacher, or as invitations for a back-to-school party.

 

Materials:

  • Blank white cards and envelopes
  • Back-to-school themed stickers or die cuts
  • 4" X 6" Treasure Tape sheets
  • 1/4" Treasure Tape Roll
  • Diamond Beadlets
  • Kreinik #12 Braid in colors to match your designs (we used 003 Red, 005 Black, 025 Gray, 002 Gold)
  • Shallow pan or tray

Instructions:

  1. Using the Treasure Tape sheets, remove the white backer and lay the Treasure Tape on top of your die cut or sticker. Cut out your die cut or sticker.
     
  2. Remove the red liner to expose the top sticky area.
     
  3. Begin decorating with threads, following the lines on your image and "coloring" various areas as desired.
     
  4. When thread decorating is complete, lay your design in the shallow pan or tray and cover remaining sticky areas with Diamond Beadlets.
     
  5. Using Treasure Tape 1/4" tape or tape scraps, attach your decorated design to the front of your white card.
