Transform a colored image into a greeting card. #freeprintable #freecalendar #cardmaking #cardtutorial
As I sat there, admiring my colorful calendar image for the month of February, I couldn’t help but feel inspired. The vibrant hues and playful design gave me an idea. Why not turn this into a one-of-a-kind, personalized greeting card for a loved one? With a few adjustments, I was able to create a beautiful, unique piece that was sure to brighten someone’s day.
It’s time to make a card from your leftover elements.
When you craft and save all your little bits and leftovers, there comes a time when you need to use them. This card is made from a collection of leftover pieces. I chose to coordinate the elements with similar colors for this card.
Using The Works Board, I have gathered my collection of leftover elements. All I need to do is glue them all into place.
I have a very pretty white-on-white card that could be used for a wedding, an anniversary, or just a special greeting. You can add your own sentiment or leave it as is.

The paper I used was Basis White Card Stock for the card. Basis White is so versatile. I love it for the foundation of most of my card making. It cuts and scores beautifully. At 80#, I choose to set my Cricut Maker at a card stock setting of 100# which works well even for small detailed cuts.
I cut the file on a Cricut Maker. As a reminder, set the red lines to score and load your scoring tool before setting the file to cut.
There are three rose cuts for this card. You could choose to use only one or you could enlarge them if desired. I urge you to watch the video tutorial below for tips and techniques on how to weed these delicate cuts.

Making a magical greeting card that sparkles and shines.
What a fun greeting card to make. It glitters and sparkles. The stencil-designed paper was the inspiration for making this card, along with the card base that has a metallic glitter to it. Adding different elements of glitter and sparkle helped to unify the pieces.
You can learn how to make the reversed stencil design at the following post: [reverse stencil]

The above image shows how the cardstock and the stenciled image both have similar glitz to them. The stenciled image was sprayed with iZink dye in silver to add sparkle.
I like to add a hint of the outside to the inside of cards. For this one, I added a strip of the stenciled paper along the edge.
