Good morning, Pebbles friends! It’s Wendy Sue here today, sharing a few quick and easy cards I whipped up with the brand new “Girl Squad” collection. Before I share my cards, I have to say that this is one of my favorite Pebbles collections yet; the colors and patterns are so modern and happy!! I had so many fun ideas swirling around in my head when I opened the package with these adorable products, but I settled on making something I’m always (always, always, always) needing – birthday cards! These patterns and colors are perfect for any girl – young or old(er)! 😉 The mix of bold patterns really makes for a unique card – nothing like you can buy in the store – which is what handmade cards are all about, right? Here’s a look at the cards I whipped up. OH, and I decorated the white envelopes to coordinate as well! Check them out:
And they truly live up to the blog title – quick and easy! Here’s how to make it yourself:
First, start by cutting various patterned pieces (these are from the 6×6 paper pad). The base should be 4″ x 5 1/4.” The pink dotted paper is 4″ x 3″ and the black gingham is actually from one of the tear strips, trimmed down to 4″ wide. The striped paper is was cut into a half-circle shape and is 4″ wide along the flat edge.
After these pieces have been cut, assemble them like this:
Next, tie white twine around the card:
Now you’ll want to gather stickers, puffy stickers, ephemera, etc.
Use them to embellish the circle. I used foam adhesive behind the die-cut pieces for a little bit of dimension.
Adding a sentiment is the next step. You can use digital die-cut shapes, metal dies, stickers, etc. to add a sentiment.
That completes the card front! Finally, place this entire piece on a white card base (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″)
If you want to create a fun coordinating envelope, pull out some washi tape (this is from the Sunshiny Days collection) and stickers or die-cuts.
Just add a strip of tape and a few embellishments! Super cute and easy, right?
Finally, here’s a look at the complete set:
And while you’re at it, you should probably whip up at least one more of these quick and easy cards with coordinating envelopes!
