I still really like stickers and I'm not ashamed to admit that. Judging by the comments I've received...you do too!
By the way, thanks for all the great comments about my layout with stickers I posted earlier this week.
Anytime I make a layout, I really like to use what's left on my desk to whip up a card.
Since I'm giving my daughter a basket full of goodies this Easter Sunday, I thought a card to go with it would be cute.
I found a white card base and looked over the sticker sheet to think about what the card could say.
I'm not a fan of cards that "say nothing" either on the front or the inside. I see that a lot. I want mine to really make sense.
I decided to use the other bunny sticker and make it say "some bunny loves you."
I started by measuring the card base....it's 4" wide by 5.5" tall. I knew that but I checked to make sure.
When I make a card - I like to just pull it together quickly so I looked around at what was already cut on my desk from the layout.
I saw this piece of white paper and laid it out, thinking it would work...
So I turned it to the right side and laid it down to eyeball where I might cut it and make a pencil mark.
I didn't think my stickers would show up great against purple so I looked around my desk for some left-over white cardstock.
I found a piece, cut it to the right width and laid it on to make a tick mark for the height. I rarely measure when making cards. I make tick marks.
(Shocking, I know, since I am the queen of measuring everything on my layouts.)
Then I smooth the sticky part of the post it down very firmly so I have a little edge to rest the letter stickers on.
I really wanted the bunny to pop off the card so I added two thick foam pop-dots on the back.
But first, I made it less tacky by rubbing it on my pajama pants to add a thin layer of fuzz.
(I really dress up to scrapbook.)
Have you made any Easter cards? Making cards is a great way to use up supplies, like stickers, that don't quite meet our standards for layouts.
I challenge you to make something this weekend using old product and especially stickers. Link me to it!
Happy Good Friday and Easter weekend. I'm looking forward to celebrating it!
