my last card DIY involved a fair amount of supplies, I paired this one down to just four--simple and easy. In fact, it's so easy I'm not sure I can really even call this a tutorial. But anyway, here's what I did.
- blank cards. I used Strathmore Stamping Cards, but you can use card stock cut to the size of your envelopes. The most important thing is just that the surface of your paper is smooth, rather than textured (as in watercolor cards or canvas cards).
- circle punch. I used a 5/8" Recollections brand circle punch from Michaels. (To be honest, there are probably better brands out there, but for my purposes, this worked just fine.)
- tissue paper. I used a multi-color pack that I already had. I don't know what brand it is since the packaging is long gone, but it doesn't matter what type you use.
- glue stick. I used Elmer's All-Purpose Glue Stick. You could try liquid glue with this project, but I thought it would be too messy and soak through the tissue paper.
If you decide to make this card, let me know! I'd love to see. xo, Mary
