Create Beautiful Cards: Creative Memories Natural Elegance Scrapbooking Collection

Cards. There is so much sentiment and meaning behind a card.

There is even more if you create the card yourself!

It doesn’t have to be difficult.  (…and, really it is not!)

Start with a card base.  I usually use cardstock for this, so that it is sturdy.

Layer on a few stickers or embellishments, and WAAAA-LA!  You have yourself a beautiful card!  Personally, I believe that layering is the key to beauty when making a card. Use those foam squares between each layer!  Just take a look at the dimension.

To create the cards below, you will need:

Step 3:  Using the pink paper, cut a circle using the inside of the large CCS-circle with the red blade.  Adhere to the centre of the card using Foam Squares.

Step 4:  Cut two pieces from the pink paper to measure 1″ x 1″.  Cut at an angle.  Adhere to the corners of the card.
