Hello Pebbles friends! It’s Wendy Sue here today, sharing an invitation…and a variation. You see, my assignment was to create an invitation, which is always so much fun, but at the same time, it felt a little weird since we’re all social distancing right now, so we aren’t really in need of invitations. SO…I created a cute invitation with the “Hey! Hello!” collection, and then I created a variation of this card that it is more appropriate for using right now, “You got this!” Here’s a look at the invitation:
I just love the cute hedgehog on the background patterned paper and that little raccoon is absolutely darling! I chose to use mostly black and white so the bits of color would really pop! Here’s the variation on the invitation:
And just to show you how easy this card is, I’m sharing a quick photo tutorial, so please, follow along!! Here are the items you’ll need:
Start by placing the hedgehog paper on the card base.
The next step is optional, but i think it adds a really special touch. Use a sewing machine and white thread to stitch around the square piece.
Place the square piece on the card, about 1″ from the bottom.
Add the piece cut from one of the branding strips:
Add the other patterned paper strip directly above the branding strip:
Next, add the sticker greeting – I love these stickers, the sentiments are perfect, the font is classic, and they are super sticky!
Add foam adhesive squares to the back of the critter. You can use the printed die-cut OR the sticker! Place him on the card front.
Complete the card by placing the two cute heart stickers in the corner of the stitched square. I used foam adhesive squares behind one of the hearts.
See how easy that was! Now you can make a dozen with all kinds of different sentiments. Some for now (that you can mail out to friends) and some for later (to be hand delivered and enjoyed when it’s safe to do so)!
Have you been making cards? We’d love to see what you’ve been up to!
Thanks for stopping by!
