When cards are homemade, it gives the creator the chance to give them any message they want like my uplifting Be Strong card. This card will give a friend in need a little bit of encouragement.
This card can be used in so many different scenarios. It can be for someone facing health issues or even for someone that is running a marathon.
It’s an exceptionally versatile card.
Cricut Double sided Paper
I used the Cricut’s double sided patterned paper.
The patterned side is nice and subtle and the flip side is a gorgeous mauve color.
This card I’m making opens from bottom to top.
The patterned side was used for the base this time.
Then I used a rectangle metal die from a set that I purchased from scrapbook.com This set comes with six different rectangle size dies.
For this card, I used the size that measures 2 ¼ x 4 ¼. It’s the perfect size for the front of my card.
On Cricut design space, I found the Be Strong design. I switched it from the cut mode to the draw mode. The Cricut gold pen was used.
In looking back I wished I would have used the silver because I think it would have shown up better but I’m partial to silver anyways.
The rectangle Be Strong was attached to the top of the card.
Pink Gems And Glitter Washi Tape
To make that pop out more, I glued three pink gems in a diagonal pattern.
In one of the Cricut Mystery boxes I received four different colors of glittered washi tape.
For this color the white and mauve washi tape fit perfect. The colors were almost identical. I attached a line of the white on the bottom of the card and a line of the mauve on top of the white.
But it needed more.
The flower Fiskars punch came to the rescue. I punched out six of the mauve color double sided patterned paper and one of the patterned side.
Six of the flowers were glued on top of the glittered washi tape where the colors meet.
The patterned side flower was placed to the upper, left corner on the Be Strong banner.
Using a gold metallic Sharpie I colored the small sized white gems and attached them to the center of the flowers.
This card is an awesome way to give someone a bit of courage and to let them know they are being thought of.
