Stationary: Mushroom
Stationary: Slushie
This & That: Milk Bottle
This & That Mixed Cardstock Sticker
This & That Alphabets
3-D Adhesive (like Helmar's Zap dots)
Ribbon
Brads

I am really into card making these days.  I love when i make a card that i know i can just repeat the elements and make multiple cards.  The above card is actually for a family friend who is currently enduring the riggers of boot camp.  We want him to know how proud we are of him and give him the encouragement & support all our armed forces need.  There is a great site that collects cards called Operations Write Home in case you are interested in making cards for donations.


I am going to do a quick tutorial on how to put this card together.  Here are my supplies:
Stationary: Oatmeal cut to 3.75 x 5 inches
Domestic Bliss: Kitchen Confidential  4.25 x 11 inches
Stationary: Slushie 1.5 x 5.5 inches
3 punches shapes (using Found & Lost: Villa, Domestic Bliss Pearls & Heels, Hello Sunshine: Posies)
3 larger punches
buttons
letter stickers

Score & fold the domestic bliss paper in half to make the base of your card.  Next take your oatmeal paper, ink the edges, adhere it to the background paper, and stitch around the edge.
Take a pair the scissors and cut a triangle at the bottom side of the 1.5 x 5.5 inch stripe.  This will make your ribbon piece.  You can also use a wide ribbon trim like i did with the first card.

add your punched embellishments.  I inked all the edges and layered them on top of each other.  On the top card i put the punched pieces on 3-D adhesive and placed a brad in the center.
Add buttons to complete the embellishments.  You can use flowers, butterflies, hearts, brackets, etc.  Change it up with the seasons using christmas trees, hearts, snowflakes, pumpkins, etc.

Use stickers to add your sentiment.  You can see i turned this card sideways and created a whole new look. 

Lots of Love
