Things a Girl Should Be Card

Things a Girl Should Be Card

Sending cards brings smiles along with them.  There are many different types of cards and reasons to send them…birthdays, anniversaries, holidays and the list goes on.  Cards of encouragement or “just because” cards are also on that list, but we are often the cards that sent the least.  This vintage card using the beautiful Couture paper line by Graphic 45 will surely bring encouragement and a smile to anyone’s day.

This card is easy to make and ends up being very elegant with its black card stock base and red punched screen over it.  The card base measures 8 ½” x 6” which adds to the beauty of the card because of its unique size.

Cut a 8 ¼” x 5 7/8” piece of red card stock using a paper trimmer.  Measure ½” inward on each side (marking two areas on the top and bottom on every side) as shown in the picture.  Connect all of the lines to create the rectangle.  This will be the guide to help you do the punched area.  It will face the card base so the pencil lines will not show and can be erased later.

Punch Outline

Line the left vertical line of the upper corner up with the line on the All Over the Page Punch by Martha Stewart (Ornate Square Pattern used) as shown in the picture.

Line Up

Make the first punch.

First Punch

Move the paper over making sure the punched area is lined up with the pattern that is on the punch base.  Continue to punch the first row.  Stop when you reach the right hand pencil mark.

Move and Punch

Now move the first row upward and match the punched area that is on top of the punch and begin punching the next row.  Continue to do this until you have all of the rows punched.  NOTE:  The punched area will go below the bottom line and that’s ok.  The lines are to be used just as a guide and the bottom area will be mostly covered with the cut out.  Attach it to the card base using a tape runner.

 

Use Marked Guides

Fussy cut out the woman from the 12 x 12 sheet.  This can be easily done using a pair of fine pointed scissors to cut her from the paper first and then use a craft knife and self healing mat to cut out the smaller areas.  Attach her to the card base using a tape runner.   You can use small dots of wet glue to adhere smaller areas down.

Adhere

Now, use the Hexagon dies by Spellbinders and a die cut machine  to cut a hexagon from the black card stock and one from the red card stock.  Next, use the smaller sized down of Hexagon die to die cut out the saying, “ A Girl Should Be Two Things: Classy and Fabulous,” for the front  of the card and for the inside of the card die cut the, : You are beautiful” from the Couture Chic patterned paper.  Adhere the sayings on top of the card stock hexagons using a tape runner and attach them to the card base.  Here’s an extra idea for the inside of the card:  write above the hexagon shapes the words, “and the third thing….” So that it says, “and the third thing….you are beautiful.”  See how easy it is to add your own personal part of a message?

Everyone enjoys receiving a little encouragement once in a while. The next time you are creating some cards to keep on hand be sure to create a few of these cards and send someone a word of thoughtfulness to make their day.  The unique size and beauty of this card along with the message will fill their heart with joy.
