Handmade Card Video Tutorial
Although this tutorial is from my Spanish Crafting Channel, Manualidades de Decor8yourlife, I make certain to show you the measurements that I use. It’s a fun and easy to follow DIY; and even if you don’t speak Spanish, it’s fun to listen to me stumble on a language skill I’m so desperately trying to regain!
Don’t have time to watch the five minute video? Not a problem! These cards are so easy to make, I can give you my measurements right away! Since these are 4×3 Cards, you will cut your card-stock at 4×6 then fold it right down the middle, by holding it horizontal wise. You then cut your first layer (which adheres right on the white card stock) an eighth of an inch less then place on top of cardstock. You then cut your second layer (which is the top layer) and eighth of an inch less than your first layer, decorate it with your die-cuts, ribbons, sequin, etc. and adhere. (Remember that less is more!)
Go ahead and watch the video for the full process. Thank you for stopping by! I’ll see you again next week!
