It is 41C today in Melbourne – HOT! But I won’t let that stop me from getting my craft on.
I decided to make some cute 3×3 inch cards and have my first play with the Beautiful Peacock stamp set that’s in the Sale-a-bration catalogue. You can get this gorgeous stamp set for free just by spending $90!
Sometimes people feel pressured to create elaborate cards, or people believe that they can’t make cards themselves because it’s far too difficult. Well, have a look at these cute cards:
All I did was get out my scrap box, find three colours that I thought would look nice together, and away I went! No need for a Big Shot, Designer Series Paper, embossing etc. Just cardstock and ink!
The three colours I used above were: Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party and Basic Grey. I also made another three using Peekaboo Peach, Melon Mambo and Old Olive:
The measurements of the cardstock are as follows:
- Cardstock base 3×6 inches, scored at 3 inches on the long side
- Whisper White or Very Vanilla 2 3/4 inch square
So easy to make – yet very effective – even a newbee could make them. So don’t let your inexperience hold you back from giving card making a go!
