Create Kindness cards - Love

Today, I am continuing to create kindness by sharing cards that I have created with this adorable kit. This particular card adds more color than the previous two cards, and of course, if you are creating them on your own, you can change the colors, or the sentiments, to your colors of preference.

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

Instructions to create this card:

1.  Cut two 1 1/4" x 4 1/4" strips of Pansy Cardstock.  Emboss them with an embossing folder,  of your choice, and adhere to the top and bottom edges of the card fronts.

2.  Cut piece of Lagoon cardstock to 3" x 4 1/4".  Adhere to the card front so that it is centered between the two pieces of Pansy pieces.  This should be flush with the left and right of the card base.

3.  Cut a pennant to 1 1/2" x 2 1/4" from the Create Kindness patterned piece.  Next, cut a pennant in the 1 1/2" end.  Adhere the flat edge flush with the top of the card base approximately 1/2" from the right card front edge.

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

5. Color the stamped image as desired with the Turquoise BlueLeaf Green, and Lavender ShinHan Twin Touch Markers as shown, or alter as desired.

7.  Adhere the colored circle with 3-d Foam Tape directly below the pennant.

8.  Tie a bow, and knot ends, with Thistle Baker's Twine (retired - can substitute White Daisy Baker's Twine - either left white or colored with Thistle Exclusive Ink Pad or re-inker).  Adhere with a Mini-glue dot below the sentiment circle.

9.  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.
