Quick Cards with Doodlebug Design Papers

Greetings! These fun, cheerful cards are fairly easy and quick to make. I made the card on the left for our postal delivery worker, the card in the middle as a thank you to a couple of friends, and the card on the right for my husband. I also made matching envelopes for the two cards on the right. For the card on the left, I put it in a pearlized metallic envelope with a piece of matching washi tape on the back.

The directions below are for making all three of the above cards, but you could make more or less depending on what you want. There are a lot of punny sayings included in these Doodlebug Design paper pads. Hope your day is full of pun!

Making the Cards

1. Use the main dies to cut the card bases as follows: use Stephanie Barnard/Sizzix Framelits Card, Kind Sentiments Step-Ups to cut one base from teal cardstock and Stephanie Barnard/Sizzix Framelits Card, Gift Card Flip-its to cut one base from teal cardstock then another from ultramarine blue cardstock. Note: Sizzix discontinues dies regularly but comes out with new designs continually. Search their website for card dies - and be sure to look at their sales and clearance sections!

2. Use the secondary, decorator, dies from the two sets to cut the backgrounds from the papers shown in the 6x6 Doodlebug Design paper pads (see Supplies for a listing of all pads used). Adhere to cards as shown.

3. Find the page of punny cards in the 12x12 packs - these are what I used as sentiment panels on the fronts of each of the cards. Trim them down to fit as shown. Use Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper to round the corners of the soda front (see photo above) and added a sticker over "cute" to make it "sweet" since I was giving this as a thank you card. Adhere the waffle panel directly to the card as shown. Adhere the other two using dimensional tape as shown.

3. Find the page of border strips in the 6x6 pads. Adhere where shown on the front or inside of the cards (the soda one is a little hard to see in the step card but it is inside the card - you could also put it on the back if you wanted to write your message there instead).

4. Add blue sequins to the front of the soda card where shown. Optional: add clear Wink of Stella to subjects of cards for some sparkle. I added it to the shooting star, including the tail, the waffles, and the sodas. Add Glossy Accents where desired. I added it to the star (shooting star), syrup (pancakes), and soda bottle but not the can.

5. Stamp soda bottles and waffle on the envelope flaps in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Color with Prismacolor pencils as shown below. For the shooting star, I used a pearlized envelope and coordinating washi tape on the back flap (not shown).
