My original “craft” back in the day was scrapbooking, but somehow it did not often cross over into card making. But, really, a handmade card isn’t so hard to create AND they are always a big hit with the receiver! I know I love getting a handmade card in the mail, not just knowing that someone took the time to make it, but also to see all the creativity that went into putting it together.
These confetti cards mix my two favorite medias: paper and adhesive vinyl!
The base of these cards was super simple to create in my Silhouette software. They are 5×7 so I simply drew a rectangle that was 10″x7″ with a dashed line across the middle for folding. I found a fun font called Sybil Green that was perfect to show off a confetti background. I cut them out on white cardstock. I also cut out two rectangles for the confetti vinyl to be added to that could be adhered to the back, inside of the card.
This is a great scrapbuster if you have scraps in the colors you want to use!
I cut 1/4″ circles on Pink, Turquoise and Lime Tree Green adhesive vinyl, Magenta Transparent Glitter vinyl, and Gold Chrome Vinyl.
Place the small rectangular cutout under the card greeting cutout and lightly trace the pattern with a pencil. Layer vinyl on pattern, using the confetti like stickers and placing them on by hand.
Use double sided tape to adhere the rectangular cutout to the back side of the front of the card.
Use transfer paper to apply the rest of the vinyl greeting to the front of the card.
I love the confetti look! And you can do any color combination.
I am loving the color scheme on this one. I used Black Glitter Vinyl, Rose Gold Glitter Vinyl, and Rosy Polished Metal Vinyl.
Have you ever made your own cards? Would you ever make your own cards?
