Create a pretty card with your FREE gift with issue 117 of Papercraft inspirations!

We just LOVE the gorgeous patterned papers and chipboard shapes that are free with this month’s issue!

The newest member of the Papercraft inspirations Design Team, Stephanie Smith has created this beautiful card using the free gift – and we couldn’t wait to share it with you!

“I created this card for my friend Tanya’s 40th birthday,” says Stephanie. “She loves bird motifs and vintage style patterns, so as soon as I saw the Hazy Days kit I knew it was perfect to make a card for her!”

You will need:

  • Hazy Days 6x6in patterned papers and Chipboard embellishments – free with issue 117 of Papercraft inspirations magazine
  • Papermania kraft square card blank 13.5 x 13.5cm
  • Light and dark brown Pro Marker pens
  • Small Daisy Punch
  • Medium Leaf Punch
  • Self Adhesive Pearl
  • Eraser
  • PVA glue
  • 3mm glue dot

Step 1

Distress the edges of the chipboard shapes by rubbing the edges lightly with an eraser. Alternatively, you can use distess inks.

Step 2

Draw a very simple branch with brown Pro-Marker marker pens. Use the darker brown at the bottom of the branch to add shading.

Step 3

Punch two small daisies from the patterned papers. Layer the daisies together with a 3mm glue dot and add the pearl to the centre.

Step 4

Turn the leaf punch upside down so that you can line up the patterned paper when punching. Snip the stems off the punched leaves and arrange them at the end of the branch. Attach the daisy and two chipboard birds to the branch with PVA glue.

Step 5

Add the chipboard greeting and numbers to the card. Finish by lining the inside of the card with patterned paper, such as the pink polka dot design.
