My mom created this handmade card today. The colors, flowers and butterflies remind me of spring. Finished card size is 5.5 inches by 4.25 inches.
Supplies and materials used:
Martha Stewart Scoring Board – this will make your life easier but a ruler and a butter knife will work
Paper and cardstock – Office warehouse or National Bookstore paper will work
Pearl Sticker Sheet – Try National Bookstore, scrapbooking section
Scissors – any but my mom uses the Cutter Bee
Butterfly Puncher – This is from Martha Stewart Crafts. There are some generic ones in the bookstore
Liquid Glue – Tombow
Sizzix Die-cut Machine and Dies – online or from the best craft supplier in the Philippines (which I will mention at the end of this post).
Step 1: Fold cardstock in half. Unfolded, cardstock measures 5.5 inches by 8.5 inches
Side note – I ironed the fabric I used as the background but some creases were left. I will use a different material next time.
Step 2: Cut the paper into the selected shapes using the Sizzix. Punch the butterfly using the Martha Stewart Crafts Punch.
Step 3: After punching and cutting all the paper designs, paste them onto to the card stock. Glue the pearl stickers.
My mom buys most of her scrapbooking supplies from Lasting Impression (Facebook page: Lastingimpressionph) in San Juan. Prepare to be overwhelmed with this store and prepare your wallet. The owner has a lot of craft supplies (imported paper, ink, stickers, albums) and equipment.
