Sunday means it is Story Card Sunday time!
So meet our latest Story Card.
And here is the scoop on how you can make one like it for your pocket-style scrapbook page. (Not a pocket-style scrapbooker? That's alright! This guy would also look great on a card or a traditional scrapbook page!)
Start by cutting a base with our Notebook Card DIY steel die from white cardstock.
Cut nine circles from three different shades of cardstock. You can get uniform looking circles by either using a punch or our Circles DIY steel dies to cut them.
Adhere three circles to the base. (You'll want to wait to adhere the rest.)
And stamp an ornament top and chain. I found these images in Technique Tuesday's Be Jolly stamp set.
By the way, be sure to set a piece of scratch paper under your Story Card, just in case your stamping goes off the card.
Now comes the tricky part.
Take the rest of the circles and mount them over your ornaments. Staple them to the card. Use your fingers to bend the edges to create a little texture.
Stamp a sentiment. (I once again used a stamp from the Be Jolly stamp set.)
Finish your Story Card off by adding a few random embellishments, like sequins, pearls or gems.
The end result should be something like this.
I'll be back again next week with another installment in our Story Card Sunday blog series! Hope to see you then!
