Card of the Week—Pregnancy Announcement Card and Lawnscaping Entry

Wednesday, October 3, 2012


I’m super excited to share this card I made for the Lawnscaping Challenge # 43, which is a texture challenge. I must use texture in my card—and I used a lot of it, LOL! At first I wasn’t really sure what I was going to do, but I knew I wanted to use my Cuttlebug and some tissue paper. 
When I had the idea of how I wanted to make this card I thought it would work well as a pregnancy announcement card, or a party menu card—where it can sit on the dinner table just waiting to be opened. I love it so much and I hope you do too! If you’d like to see how this card was made check out the images I’ve provided for you below:

The tools

Step 1: Cut ivory card stock at a standard A2 size and use it as a pattern to cut out 10 sheets of two toned tissue paper. 
Step 2: Fold and prepare into a mini pom-pom, and set aside. 


Step 3: Cut two pieces of baby blue card stock (with room for a boarder) then run through the Cuttlebug using embossing/texture folder. 
Step 4: Apply ribbon down the middle.
Step 5: Using white embossing powder create your message like so:
Step 6: Spray the pom-pom with perfume for a little extra sweetness (optional).

Step 7: Apply a large zot to the back of the mini pom-pom and adhere to the card. Next add the inner insert and you’re finished. 




I hope you enjoyed this card. I know I had a lot of fun making it :-D
