Good morning. Welcome to Day Two with Guest Designer Marge Robertson. Today Marge has a really cute birthday card. For more projects by Marge, visit her blog here.
Thanks for coming by on my second day Guest Designing @ JustRite Papercraft. I have a fun little birthday card today, which could easily be adapted for a boy or girl depending on color choices and whether you choose to stamp a focal image or use designer paper as I did. Cutting a window in my card added so much more depth, so I chose that option today! As a bonus, this card perfectly fits the current JustRite Friday Challenge #095, so I'll be adding it there.
Step 1: I decided to make this a window card, but if you choose not to, simply center your image on card front, using a centering ruler. Center top to bottom and side to side, place your die (A2 Matting Basics A #2 die -- #1 being smallest) in the center of your card front & die cut;
Step 2: Die cut focal image from DP (A2 Matting Basics A #3); set aside, as we'll adhere it in Step 6;
Step 3: Die cut 2 largest A2 Locking Loops rectangles in chosen colors; attach smallest to open area using foam tape and largest using 1/8" Scor-Tape;
Step 4: Die cut banner/bunting and four button shapes from CS using Spellbinders Buntings and Buttons die, then stamp with Buntings and Banners. Thread buttons with desired fiber, cord, etc. I used crochet thread colored with my ink pad. Layer banner as shown and add buttons at each end;
Step 5: Finally, die cut two Spellbinders Ribbon Banners, stamp with desired sentiments and attach sentiment banner @ center bottom with foam tape and buttons.
Step 6: Adhere your main image to inside, attaching second sentiment banner above focal image.
