Hi friends! Hope you are doing well! Now that my designers all have the new Chasing Dreams collection I can’t wait to see what they create with it! It’s so rewarding for me to see how all of my favorite creative minds use each of the products! Today Amanda has a darling project for us that you can easily make with your kids too! I know my girls would LOVE to make these! In fact, one of their favorite things to do is make cards for friends and family and basically anyone! It’s fabulous to see their little souls being filled up through the simple act of sharing some kind words and a thoughtful gesture with someone! Read on for the full tutorial for how to make these darling DIY Spring themed cards!
If you’re like me, there is something so exciting about opening the mail box and seeing a bright colored envelope or small package. Receiving “happy mail” makes the day brighter but sending it is just as exciting. I have talked about this subject multiple times, mostly because it is so dear to my heart. Sending a little happy mail note doesn’t have to cost a lot of money either. Today I am sharing a super simple way to create cute pattern paper notecards using Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams paper collection.First off, let’s gather our supplies. You will need —-
Pattern paper (I chose to use the small 6×6 paper pad as the patterns are printed smaller and they look great on smaller sized projects.)
Typewriter or pen
Once you have all your supplies gathered, begin by rolling your permeant adhesive onto one side of your card stock card. Place your white card stock paper onto the back side of your pattern paper. I like to line my card up to the outside edge of the pattern paper. This helps make sure my card is straight. Pressing firmly, make sure your two papers stick together. Once your papers are stuck together, use your scissors and cut the pattern paper and card edges.Before I began to embellish my note card I used my typewriter to write a little message. If you don’t have a typewriter you can use a pen or pencil.Now the fun part, decorating and embellishing!!!! I love using card stock stickers as they add a little dimension to the card. When I typed my message I made sure I left a large space so I could place my butterfly on top.Slip your finished card into your colored envelope and seal with a piece of washi tape!!! I am just loving how these double sided cards turned out and they took less then 20 minutes to make!!!Just think if we all took 20 minutes once a week/month to send a friend a little note!! Imagine all the smiles we could create!!!!
