I enjoy crafting and cardmaking most of the time, even the most complex designs, but just occasionally I think how nice it would be to have a pretty card made without too much effort or angst going into it – just a relaxed few minutes at your craft spot, whether it be the kitchen table or a desk.
This Thomas Kinkade project is so simple, hopefully you should find it a great way to chill and craft! The ingredients are all fairly simple and, of course, you can tweak which main design you use, and change the backing paper to use something you may have in your stash.
I think crafting can be compared to cooking – sometimes I want to make my own stock and sauces from scratch – and at other times I just want to get on, and an Oxo cube will do nicely thank you! I hope you enjoy this one.
- Joanna Sheen’s Thomas Kinkade cardmaking collection volume 1 (6″ x 6″)
- Signature Dies Sabrina Lace Border SD407
- Cardstock in grey and white plus a white square blank card – this one is 8″ x 8″, just trimmed a little
- Backing paper comes from Joanna Sheen 8″ x 8″ paper collections volume 2 – but you could change that!
- Mat some of the backing paper on grey card – add that to the card blank. I use double sided tape, but use whatever you like to use.
- Cut the border from the sheet in the Thomas Kinkade pad, add two-thirds or so of the way down (as in photo).
- Die cut the Sabrina border and make sure it is the same width as the grey card. Stick on with whatever glue you enjoy using – I use either glossy accents or a quickie glue pen.
- Mat the main image onto white card and attach that to your design and then cut out the little sentiment also on the sheet and add that – hey presto …. done!
