Over the last three weeks, these tutorials have shown you how to create a deck of cards to inspire you when your creativity has a day off. For the final instalment, lets use those last few scraps, to create a beautiful card to put with an Insire Me deck of cards as an ideal gift for the crafter who has everything.
You Will Need
- The remaining cardstock left from Parts 1-3 measures 5 1/8 x 9″
- Scor It Board
- Steel ruler
- Scraps of decorative paers/card stock
- Score the card in half to create a base card
- Decoarate using the papers/card stock of your choice
- Add embellishments
If you have been crafting for a while but your friend hasn’t you might be best to fill in at least some of the cards to get them started. If you leave the cards blank for more experienced crafters make sure you add instructions for what kind of things to put on the cards, so they know what do do with them.
Do you craft in a group?
Weather your friends are close by or on line it might be fun to ask them to choose some themes and products. You can make a set of cards each or just one person make a set for the whole group. As described in Part 3, you can use these cards for just a starting point or to suggest a complete project.
Here is the card I created from the left overs. I added panels sprayed with Perfect Pearls in a mini mister to the white background. The side panel was inked using Adirondack ink and later embossed using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I sanded the embossed area to bring back white card stock and add texture.

Thanks for joining me and I really would love to see how you use these cards and how they have helped you. Do leave me a comment and let me know how you have gotten on with this project. I don’t bite and your comments are really important to me as from them I discover what kind of things you do or don’t like about this blog.
Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon
