Sunburst Handmade Card Idea

Sunburst-Card

I’ve wanted to make a sunburst card for a while, but never decided to learn how until recently. I was afraid it would be a long, drawn-out process and I like quick cards! Much to my surprise, it was a very simple and fast project. Follow along and you’ll soon have your very own sunburst card! It can easily be adapted for a man just by choosing more earth toned papers. Try Graphic 45 papers!

Stitched Burlap Accent Handmade Card

Sometimes just one little extra accent can add a distinctive touch to a project. On this card, I added 3 burlap stitches to the tag. The eye of the needle wasn’t quite large enough to easily fit the burlap twine through, so I separated the strands into two pieces before starting.

The neat postage stamp tag is one that I cut at 3″ from the Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge. I inked both the postage stamp and the white cardstock with a magenta ink, using the Ranger Ink Blending Tool.

I hope you enjoy this project! Thanks for stopping by!

Fall Ribbon Handmade Card

This is a fun card to make just for a greeting, or it would be neat for an invitation to a Harvest Party! I used a cream card, orange-red cardstock for the front, a piece of patterned paper (3.5″ long and 4″ wide), a border punch, sheer ribbon, metallic maple leaf brad, die-cut letters (Cricut Ornamental Iron 2, font, 1″). For adhesives, I used a permanent glue stick, 1/8″ Scor-Tape, and a Tombow Glue Pen for the skinny die-cut letters. Thanks for stopping by!

Pink, Lace & Butterfly Thank You Card

This is a very simple Thank You card with a fun paper clip accent. I used a 3″ tag that I cut on the Cricut with the Elegant Edge cartridge, 2 butterflies – 1 @ 3/4″ and 1 at 1/2″ — I used the Cricut Picturesque cartridge,  a small tag punch, 2 pieces of lace, adhesive pearls, and a paper clip.  Once you have the pieces assembled, it’s a very quick card to put together.
