Create Kindness Friend Card

Tonight, I would like to share a card from this weeks card Club that we created with the Create Kindness Card Kit.  I, am a pink loving, "sassy" kind of gal, so this card featuring our new Raspberry color was my favorite from the class.

The finished card size is the standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

Instructions to create this card:

1.  You will note that the front of the card was embossed.  This was done on a White Daisy Value Card using the Cuttlebug and a dotted embossing folder that has recently retired, but you could easily accomplish a similar look with the Confetti Embossing Folder.

2.  Along the fold of the card, adhere a 1/2" x 5 1/2" strip of Raspberry cardstock.

3.  Using Pixie Baker's Twine (now retired) - substitute with White Daisy Baker's Twine - could color twine if desired with Pixie Exclusive Ink Pad or Pixie Re-inker - wrap twine around the front of the Raspberry strip to the inside of the card and tie with a small knot.

4.  Cut the pink striped Create Kindness base in half at the seam leaving a 3" x 3" half.  Adhere, as desired, the top portion of the card with 3-d Foam Tape.

5.  Stamp the Create Kindness - Friend stamp with Black Archival ink onto the pre-cut White Daisy Circle.

6.  Color the stamped image as desired with the Cherry Pink and Tender Pink ShinHan Twin Touch Markers as shown, or alter as desired.

7.  Adhere the colored circle to the center of the striped square with 3-d Foam Tape.

8.  Write a sentiment on the inside of the card and share with a friend, stranger, or loved one!


If you would like to create these cards, and don't have the supplies on hand, you can join me on Saturday, September 17th at the Harrisonburg Hotel at my Create Kindness event.  This will be one of the cards available to create in my card buffet.  For details on this event, visit:  Sassy Broadway Scrapers Meet-Up Group or my Calendar of Events Page here on my blog.
