Guest Designer Jessica Aguirre: Simple & Beautiful Card

Hello, my name is Jessica and I have been making cards for about two years. I am happy to share with you a card I made for several of my friends and family this holiday season. This is my first tutorial and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it for you.
Supplies you will need:
- blank 6 ½ x 5 in. card
- 5 ½ x 4 ½ pattern paper
- blue cardstock (I used Backyard collection-Quack, blue side) in same measurement as blank card
- Cuttlebug
- Border punch (your choice)
- 4 coordinating flowers in different sizes
- Ribbon slider button
- Sentiment
- Berry sprig

Step #1- Using your Cuttlebug D’vine swirl embossing folder, emboss the blue side of Quack pattern paper.

Step #2- Using adhesive, glue blue cardstock paper to blank card. Use a border punch on your pattern paper along the long sides.

Step #3- Slide blue ribbon on your ribbon slider and adhere to the back of the pattern paper.

Step #4- Using adhesive, attach to the blue embossed paper.

Step #5- Attach brads to flowers using Craft ½ glue dots. Here I have also used red buttons in the center of the flowers.

Step #6- Using the glue dots, adhere them to the side of your card.

Step #7- Glue your sentiment on top of the blue ribbon with adhesive.

Step #8- Attach your berry sprig with glue dots and hide under the flowers.

Thank you and I hope you had fun with this tutorial.

What a wonderful job for your first tutorial. I love the card. That design is something that could be used all year long with just a minor adjustment on the sentiment. So glad you joined us for the GDT, you did a great job!
