Fall means things start getting busy and days get shorter. One way to make a day brighter in the hustle and bustle of the upcoming holiday season is to share a happy little card. I made these cards in bright springy and summery colors as a pop of happy on darker, colder fall days. This set of 3 cards is super easy to make, as all of them are a variation on one basic design.
The blue card on the right has the basic design. I used a pre-printed card with a cutout shape in the middle as the base. Then I added a punched circle of patterned paper inside the window if the card, so it looks sort of like a hill or setting sun. Next, I stamped a sentiment on the front of the card and added a cute brad. Here's how:
If you don't have cards that have a window in them you can punch a window with a paper punch, use a craft knife and ruler to cut a window, or use a moveable die to cut a windo into a card base.
- Pre-printed Window Card Bases
- 3″ Circle Punch or Circle Die
- Scrap Patterned Paper
- Glitter, Felt Flower (optional)
- Sentiment Stamp
- Black Ink
- Metal Rim Tag (optional)
- Aleene's Quick Dry Tacky Glue Pen
I hope you enjoyed these bright, happy cards! Would receiving one of these brighten your day?
