Story Card Sunday: This Day Was

Hello all!

Teri here, and I'm back with a new Story Card.


This week's Story Card is an especially good one for pocket-style and traditional scrapbooking pages. Please don't feel left out if you are a card maker. You can easily use different words on this Story Card to make it more card-friendly.

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

You are going to need Technique Tuesday's Story Card and Straight Talk - Happy DIY Steel Dies.

Place the dies on a piece of cardstock like so. Be sure to use a little decorative tape (or painter's tape) to hold them in place. 


Run the dies through your die-cutting machine and you'll get something like this. Use your scissors to make your line longer.


You should end up with something like this.


Cut two more happy words from two additional pieces of cardstock. Be sure to move the words when you cut them so they aren't all at the same height when you cut. You'll see why in a minute.


Once you've cut those words, you should end up with something like this.


Cool, huh?

Now set the words aside and cut a Story Card base from white cardstock.


Adhere the die-cut words on top.


Stamp some additional words and an arrow onto the card. (I used stamps from This Day Was by Ali Edwards and Darn Good Day stamp sets.)


Finish the Story Card off with a few sequins or gems.


Your card should look something like this when you are finished.


I hope you will join me again next weekend for another Story Card Sunday!
