Hi Lisa here to share with you some quick and easy encouragement cards I made to keep in my purse using the Makes You Happy foiled paper from the Colorwashed collection. These cards do not open and on the back I like to add a piece of graph paper so I can hand write a personal note to the recipient. Here are my cards:
These cut apart cards make even the novice paper crafter look like a pro!! You can go SUPER simple with these cards like I did with this one. This card was just cut apart from the larger paper sheet and then I added a strip of washi tape from the Butterflies washi tape set along the side of the card. To dress it up even more and to bring out the gold foil on the word “happy” I added an offset faux enamel butterfly sticker! This fun quote is sure to encourage someone and brighten their day!!
On my next card I stepped it up a bit and added a stamped quote on a piece of graph paper mounted on card stock. I then embellished my stamped quote by adding a doily under the top left corner of the quote. I added two faux enamel butterflies to this card of different sizes and at opposite corners to add visual interest and offset the larger doily. Nothing adds a finished look more easily then washi tape. I added two strips of washi tape from the butterflies washi tape set & the Llama washi tape set to balance out the card. This shows you how well the washi tape from different collections works so well together!!
The next card definitely took more time and was a bit more complex. For this card I layered two sizes of cards from the Makes You Happy foiled paper. I hand wrote my scripture and offset it using washi tape from the Summer fun washi tape set. I then added 2 adorable succulent faux enamel stickers to balance out my card and give it lots of sparkle and shine!
I hope these cards give you an idea of how you can make something look gorgeous with just a little bit of work.
