Story Card Sunday: Beautiful Awesome

Teri here, and it's time for another installment in our Story Card Sunday blog series!

Here is your first look at this week's Story Card!


Like all the Story Cards we feature on Story Card Sunday, this one would work great in a pocket-style scrapbook page. It would also look good on a traditional page or greeting card.

Let me show you how to make one like it.


Start by die-cutting two bases with our Story Card DIY steel die. One should be cut from vellum, while the other should be cut from either cardstock or patterned paper.

Now cut three frames using three different dies from patterned paper or cardstock. I did this with the Magic Circle Card, Hi Banner Card and This Arrow Card dies.


Now you are going to want to stack the bases and frames to make one card. From bottom to top, your stack should look like this:

  • patterned paper base
  • vellum base
  • circle frame
  • banner frame
  • arrow frame


Don't be afraid to flip those frames over as you stack them up to change their orientation. Perhaps you want the arrow to be at the bottom of your Story Card, or perhaps you'd like the banner at the top. Simply flip the frames over so the decorative elements land where you want them.

Now it is time to do a little stamping. Stamp some words on the arrow and the banner. I used stamps from the Beautiful by Ali Edwards and Live Laugh Love by Lori Vliegen stamp sets.


You'll also want to die-cut a word to go in the center of the card. I used the Say It - Awesome steel die. (Stickers or letter stamps would also work great!)

Finish your Story Card off with gem, epoxy dot, brad or sequin.


And you'll see even though I used a lot of different dies to make this Story Card, it's not too thick to slide it into a pocket page!


Please join me again next Sunday to learn how to make another Story Card.


PS. Are you a digital die-cutter? Check out our Digital Cut Files. We offer digital cut files of many of our steel dies.


These dies are awesome!

These dies are awesome love the layering of the vellum.

Absolutely love the circle, arrow, and banner card dies!
