How to Make
- For the blue card, make a narrow, horizontal card blank from blue card, then put to one side. Choose your message - we found three word phrases or messages work best - then type the message repeatedly in a small text box in your chosen colour and font, mixing uppercase, lowercase and italic words for an interesting effect.
- Print out the message panel and cut out neatly using a knife and metal ruler, or paper trimmer. Arrange the panel in the bottom right-hand corner of the card and affix in place with Glue Dots.
- Apply a strip of self-adhesive gems around the edge of the panel, as shown. Create interest across the rest of the card by drawing on doodle patterns with a silver marker pen and leave to dry.
- The red card is made in exactly the same way, using a different message, font and colour. We left the rest of the card clear for this design to give it a simple, fresh look.
Try highlight some of the letters in the message with a glitter pen, or adding an outline to some of the characters with gold or silver marker.
