December is the month when everyone is preparing for the upcoming New Year. Someone does it a little earlier, someone a little later. We complete everything that needs to be completed, we complete our work, and, of course, we are looking forward to a long weekend that we can devote to what we want. But before the weekend we have a holiday filled with magical moments, gifts and dreams... Stop! Presents?... Presents! Have you already prepared them? Good job! Well, what is a gift without a card?
Today we will show how you can easily make a wonderful postcard.
We will need:
- a ruler, a pencil, a cutting mat, an office knife, glue;
- a basis for a card;
- plain cardstock;
- circle cutters of different sizes;
- an "Among Meadows" mimi-cut cutter;
- a star cutter: a solid one of tracing-paper and a contour of cardstock;
- a stamp, an acrylic block and a stamp pad;
- powder, a stamp pad and a hair dryer for embossing;
- a cutting machine;
- bulk tape or adhesive bulk pads;
Take a sheet of paper for the basis of the card. Cut out the base with a size of 9,5x22 cm and score it in half at a distance of 11 cm from the edge.
Cut two rectangles with a size of 10,5x9 cm of plain cardstock.
Emboss them with a cutting machine and an embossing folder and glue to the base, leaving a small frame from the edge. If you do not have a cutting machine, you can skip the step with embossing.
Now let's make decorative elements for the card.
Put a stamp on the smaller circle.
Start embossing. Take the star contour, apply it to the embossing pad and sprinkle with powder. When you apply the powder, do not forget to put a blank piece of paper under the workpiece to make it easier to remove the remains of powder in a jar.
Bake our star. To avoid burns, hold the cutter with pincers, an awl, or what you will be comfortable with.
Glue the contour and the star of tracing paper together. This is done.
Assemble the composition on the card. To give it volume, glue the circles together with the help of foam tape.
Add small details of sequins.
That's all, our card is ready. Admire the result.
After using some imagination, we got another card.
