Dale's July 2014 lesson

Hi there. Dale here with this month's lesson.

Today I'm doing a lesson on card making. It's a really simple card that I've made with the July Mystical Kit.

I've used the yellow cardstock, some white cardstock, the grey and white twine, washi tape, the Hello wire balloon word and the Simple Stories DIY Boutique and Echo Park Capture life patterned papers. I've also used my own yellow pen and a square punch.

Firstly, I assembled my bits and pieces.

I have punched out a square and a frame from the Echo Park paper. I inked in yellow around the square.

The DIY Boutique paper is terrific to alter. I have coloured in yellow pen  in the frame to match my design. You can see on my Sunset layout that I used two coloured pens to match my design using the same technique.

Then I stuck down all the other elements.  I didn't forget to adorn the inside of my card to match the front. A card gives a great overall impression if you also decorate the inside.

Here is the finished card.
