Story Card Sunday: Mod Hugs

Hello again!

It's Story Card Sunday, and I have a brand new pocket page-friendly Story Card to share with you. 2_scs_21_hugs_teri
You like?

Like many of the Story Cards we share here on the Technique Tuesday blog, this guy isn't just meant for pocket page scrapboooks. It would also look great on traditional scrapbook page or card!

Let me show you how to make one just like it.

Start by cutting two bases from cardstock with our Story Card DIY Steel Die. The bases should be two different colors. You'll see why in a minute.


Now set those bases aside and pull out our Say It - Hugs steel die.

Die-cut the word from dark cardstock.


By the way, you'll notice all our Say It word steel dies have dots in them like you see here. That's because sometimes you might need a little help getting the word out of the die. Simply use a pushpin, stickpin or piercing tool to pop it out.


Set that word aside and grab the white Story Card base. Stamp the grid pattern on the base with Technique Tuesday's Grid stamp.


Now grab the mat die from the Say It - Hugs steel die. Set it on the card. Use a piece of removable tape (or Washi or Painter's tape) to hold it in place.


Run it through your die-cutting machine. Remove the die. You should have a grid card with an open space.

Now set the second base card down. Set the grid card on top. Don't glue the cards together quite yet. Instead set the word in the open space. Adhere the word in place.


Remove the grid card. Place foam adhesive under it and then adhere it permanently onto the red card.

Finish the card off by scribbling some color in some of the grid squares randomly with markers, pencils, paint or crayons.


I'll be back again next week with another installment in the Story Card Sunday blog series. Hope to see you then!



Great grid card stamp. . . so versatile. . .

Project is very cute and useful.
