hello friends! today, i'm bringing another round of cards using Little Yellow Bicycle's Hello Spring collection! except this time i have a full-color downloadable PDF file with step-by-step instructions (including supply lists), a printable template, AND a video tutorial supplement. are you ready to tackle your fear of card-making!?
it's so easy, all it takes is adhesive (i use thin glue dots) and a circle punch. my favorite circle punch to reach for when making cards is the Fiskars Pop-up Circle Punch. it's the perfect size measuring a 1/2" circle. i've also used this technique on layouts and usually reach for my 1" circle punch: Fiskars Medium Circle Lever Punch.
you can see my process for putting the butterfly card together in this video! also included are some tips/tricks on how to put your tools to use for you to give you a fail-proof way to keep up with the trend of creating banners for your projects.
here's a look at the card showing off the banner trend. no joke....you can re-create this card in 5 minutes flat!
i didn't detail out the exact punches used in the video, and i'm sure i'll get a few questions about it. so if you're curious as to which square punch i use often for this technique, it's the Fiskars Block Party Large Squeeze Punch.
you may also notice that all three cards have the same cloud element. big puffy white clouds just scream "happy" to me, so i love adding them to my projects whenever i can. adding something so small, such as a little white cloud, can help make three very different cards appear cohesive enough for you to gift them as a set. it also helps that if you use products from the same collection when gifting as a set so the colors and patterns are sure to coordinate without so much forethought.
