Hi friends! We have some darling handmade cards to share with you today! They were created by design team member, Jessy and they are pretty simple and easy to make! They look more complex but you’ll be surprised at how easy they are! She only used a few products and she followed basically the same design plan for both cards, which simplifies things even more! Oh and she reminds us of a great tip too… which is to save your scraps of paper when you are scrapbooking! Those smaller strips and squares are perfect for cards!! It’s a great way to have less waste and also to stretch your supplies a little further! Read on for the full tutorial to make these cute handmade cards!
I truly enjoy creating other projects besides just scrapbook layouts. I take it as a mini-break from working on a large canvas. This time I decided to make some handmade cards. To begin, I always look through the products in one of Maggie’s collections. Looking through the products I have allows me to use leftover scraps from when I make scrapbook pages. This gives me an idea of how much I have left to play with after I have made some other projects. Scraps truly are perfect for handmade cards like these!
These cards are fairly easy to create. I have a “simple sketch” that I sketched out in my mind while picking out the products. I decided to use the same patterned papers, a ballerina image and ephemera die-cuts. Using repetition on both cards surely speeds up the creative process. And they sure look pretty and cohesive too.
I love how the cards instantly looked classy with the ballerina images. Adding accent stickers to your cards is also a great addition. If you are wanting a fuller look, you can definitely keep adding more stickers and die cuts.
