wednesday...Birthday Card Set Tutorial for ScrapThat!

Hello again!

I want to share with you a quick tutorial on how to make cards using your scraps after you are done working with your kit. I absolutely loved working with the March kit but I always end up with a pile of scraps that are too small to keep using on layouts. That's when making cards come in handy, plus everyone can use an extra card or two in their stash! Right before I put my kit content away, I always make a few cards (I don't always I post them online though) because, let's face it, after you put things away you don't want to take them out again!

  • ScrapThat! March Kit scraps
  • adhesive
  • sewing machine
  • doily die or 5" doilies

Step 1. Gather your scraps from the kit. As you see, I didn't have many 'scraps"! :)

Step 2. Make card bases with any leftover cardstock. I like to work with 5.5"x4.25" card bases.

Step 3. Trim your pattern paper to the same size and run them through the Distrezz-it-all tool.

Step 4. Fold and crinkle the corners to give them an aged feel.

Step 5. Machine stitch (or hand stitch if you prefer) each pattern paper layer alone and then adhere unto the card base.

Step 6. If you have a doily die, die cut two from leftover cardstock. If you don't, then use store purchased 5"  doilies.

Step 7. Fuzzy cut the birthday sentiments and adhere them unto the doily.

Step 8. Apply Aleene's Tack -It Over & Over adhesive all around the faux stitching on the sentiment circle and let it dry.

Step 9. After the adhesive dries, it will be temporary and will feel tacky to the touch. Add the cording included in this month's kit all around it.

Step 10. Add the doily and sentiment to the card base as shown. Now, you can add embellies to your cards!

Here are my finished birthday card set. Aren't those roses the sweetest?

Here are some close ups:

I hope that you give these cards a try!
