Just to Say Hello Greeting Card

By:

Here's a cheerful greeting that looks like it came straight from an expensive boutique or fancy card store - but you made it yourself using inexpensive materials. It's so much more fun to give a card from the heart, made with your hands.

Just to Say Hello Greeting Card

Materials:

  • Blank Aqua Card with White Envelope
  • Aqua Polka-dot print (Scrappin' Creations Power Pad)
  • White cardstock
  • Daisy washers
  • Aqua eyelets (Eye-lets Etc.)
  • Flower punch (McGill Craftivity Giant Flower Punch )
  • Iron-On Threads: #16 Braid 6010 Pearl, 1/8" Ribbon 6010 Pearl
  • Household iron or mini iron
  • Teflon Press Cloth

Steps:

  1. Turn your iron on to the highest heat setting and let it heat thoroughly.
     
  2. Cut two strips of Aqua paper, slightly uneven. One should be the length of your card, and the other half as long. Punch two flowers from your white cardstock.
     
  3. Mount your two Aqua strips on your card. Using your Pearl ribbon, outline the sides of both strips. (Lay the thread at a starting point, cover with the Teflon Press Cloth, and press for several seconds until the thread adheres. Continue this way until your design is complete.) Mount your two punched flowers over the strips.
     
  4. Lay out your eyelets and washers to determine placement (see our photo for a guide). Mark the positions of your eyelets with a pencil. Set the eyelets.
     
  5. Use your Pearl iron-on braid to make "stems" for the eyelet flowers. Lightly print your greeting in the corner of your card. Follow your outline with the Pearl iron-on braid.
