BUT – if you’re strapped for time and still want to join in the worldwide cardmaking fun, we’ve got a stunning handmade holiday card that you can throw together quickly using the Gather Together Variety Mat Pack and Stickers! Ready to learn more? Let’s go!
To create this card you’ll need:
- Gather Together Mat Pack
- Gather Together Stickers
- 12×12 White Solid Cardstock or Blank Card Kit
- 12-inch Trimmer
- Tape Runner
- Foam Squares
- Black or Brown Dual-Tip Pen
Step 1: Use the 12-inch Trimmer to cut a piece of White Cardstock to measure 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Then, fold in half to create your card base. Or simply use a card base from the Blank Card Kit (that’s what we did!).
Step 2: Cut the 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ navy floral patterned mat from the Gather Together Mat Pack to measure 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. Adhere to the card base.
Step 3: Cut the 4″ x 6″ Gather Together mat with the perforated card and floral cluster pattern to measure 3-1/2″ x 5-1/4″. Adhere on top of the navy floral mat.
Step 4: Adhere the “Gather” sticker to the centre of the card, slightly angled up, using Foam Squares. Adhere a cluster of flower and leaves, some using Foam Squares for added dimension, and adhere the heart sticker underneath.
Step 5: Write your message inside using a Black or Brown Dual-Tip Pen.
And that’s it! Super quick, easy and stunning! What do you think? And who will you be making cards for today? Comment below!
