Cards are expensive at any store. Creating your own is a great way to send a personalized card to anyone. The March PopFizzPaper Planner Kit had some hand-created journal cards. I decided it is a great kit to make a personalized card with and send to a friend. I started by gathering my supplies. I chose to use as many of the products that I could from the kit. Then added a few of my own supplies to make this card.
I began by selecting the Natural Beauty information card that came in the kit. This would be the background for my card front. I cut the card stock into 5.25" x 4" to fit on a card base of 5.5" x 4.25". I took the journal card with the green stripes and wood grain and cut along the diagonal. These two pieces would be a part of the card front and the inside of the card.
I selected a natural colored piece of card stock from my stash and cut a small strip for my front sentiment. Then I cut another piece 5.25" x 4" for the inside. I placed the green striped journal card piece on the natural card stock and stamped the sentiment "Thinking Of You" on the bottom. The stamp messed the word "You" up, so I decided to use a green page flag from the Planner kit and stamp and cover my mistake. I left room to write, glued it to the inside of the card base, and the inside of the card was complete.
The wood grain journal card piece became part of the front of the card when I placed it over the Natural Beauty card stock. I began the front by using the strip of natural colored card stock and stamping my sentiment. I "flagged" the end, creating a banner. I used the Washi tape, that came in the kit, and added some to that banner. Popping it up with foam dots, I placed it on the front to the left side. One of my favorite sheets in the March kit is the " Create your Own plant" sticker sheet. I selected a pot and a plant and used some of the "washi" strips from the kit to create a new element on the front of the card. It is my favorite part of the card. :) I added a few sequins and beads, that came with the kit, to complete the front and it looked amazing!
This card turned out as one of my favorite projects yet. It was made using elements of the March PopFizzPaper Planner Kit. Next time you need a quick card, use what you have. Create something and give a piece of you in your art. I am no expert card maker but this kit made it easy to create something wonderful and meaningful.
