Fall Card Tutorial

Cards

Well, today is the first day of fall, y’all. Woohoo! Finally! Seems like we’ve been waiting to say, “It’s Fall!” for like, oh, FOREVER! To celebrate, I am going to give you a card tutorial.

Cut

Step one: Cut your cardstock. The dimensions of this card are four and a quarter by five and seven-sixteenths. SO, you’re going to cut your brown cardstock: eight and a half by five and seven-sixteenths.

Score

Step two: Now you’re going to score your cardstock. Score at four and a quarter.

Fold

Step three: Now fold your card with the bone folder/scorer thingy.

Cut 2

Step four: Now cut your  white cardstock. The dimensions are: five by four.

Apply Adhesive 2

Step five: Now apply adhesive to your white cardstock. I like to use what I call “snail” but it is really called “Tombow Mono Permanent Adhesive”. You can get it at Michaels.

Adhere

Step six: Adhere your white cardstock to your card.

Place

Step seven: Place your stickers or embellishments on your card.

Apply Adhesive

Step eight: If your embellishments are not self-adhesive, add some adhesive. For this I use glue dots. I got mine from Stampin’ Up, but I’m sure they sell them at Michaels. Snail is definitely not going to cut it.

Stamp

Step nine: Now that your embellishments are adhered to your card, stamp your stamp! For my ink, I like to use a coordinating color. For this card I used a blue ink, because one of the flowers is blue.

Finished!

Complete!!

All of these items can be purchased at Michaels or your local craft store. This is what the “snail” looks like:

And this is what the glue dots look like.
