I have made this handmade card a birthday card however you could change the wording to suit a different occasion such as mothers day or perhaps a leaving card.
The card is DL shaped. Begin by folding the card using a bone tool and card scoring board. You could also use a ruler and scalpel but you would need to take extra care not to press too hard and puncture the card.
The front panel of the card is a rectangle cut from blue bazzill bling card stock, which was then attached to the front of the card using double sided tape. When cutting the bazzill paper cut it a few millimetres smaller than the card base so you end up with a nice border to your birthday card.
The happy birthday message has been placed at the top right hand corner of the card. Again the positioning of the decoupage and the wording is down to personal choice.
You may also have other accessories you want to add to this handmade card including brads, ribbon or maybe personal items that would be suited to the recipient.
Paper nation decoupage is becoming increasingly popular, and is a really quick and easy way to make a homemade card look like a professional masterpiece.
The images are really easy to put together and paper nation can also provide you with background papers and tea bag papers to match your decoupage image.
