I love personalizing cards for my kids and my nieces and nephews.  While creating individual and unique cards could be very time-consuming, using pre-made card bases and coordinating embellishments makes this process not only fun, but quick and easy too!  I’d love to share one of my recent cards with you! Here’s how I created this card.

  1.  I used a card base from Doodlebug’s Create-A-Card collection as the base for my card. 

  2. Next, I lined the inside of the card with patterned paper from the 6×6 fruit stand pad.

  3.  In order to have some “clean” writing space, I trimmed down a card from the fruit stand simply put 4×6 album inserts pad – rounding all four of the corners with a punch.

  4.  To add the number flag, I simply punched out a single piece from the fruit stand mini banner set, tied twine through the holes, and placed a number sticker on the flag.  I used a foam adhesive dot to place the flag in the center of the pre-made circle opening on the card.

  5.  To embellish the front of the card, I ripped three strips of gingham washi tape and placed them along the edge of the card.  I added some machine stitching with red thread as well.  Finally, I added a small bird doodle-pop sticker and a “note” from the mini love notes collection directly over the washi tape.

And how much more fun is a cute card when it arrives in a cute envelope?!?  To create this cute envelope, simply add three strips of washi tape to the center of the envelope front (the envelope also comes in the Create-A-Card pack) and add letter stickers to spell out the recipient’s name.
Quick and easy and sure to make someone feel extra loved on their special day!
