#39 Craft Your Scraps 5 Minute Card

Hey Crafters! Welcome to a fabulous card from the 5 minute video series on YouTube. This beautiful card, #39 in the series, looks complicated but, as you can see by the timer in the photo, we finished with 14 seconds to spare! Click HERE to see this card come together quickly on YouTube.   


Scroll down for the supply list and instructions.
Supplies:
Craft card stock
*Decorative paper(s) 5 inches long or more
Scissors
Foam Tape
Glue


Start with a craft color top folding A2 note card (4.25 by 5.5 inches) and additional card stock.


Cut a 4x5 1/4inch card from from the remaining craft color card stock.


*The decorative paper shown here was made using distress inks with a smoothing technique. Water was sprayed on and then removed for the distress  effect. 


Starting about 1/4 inch in from the side, Cut several wave like patterns horizontally leaving  1/4 inch on each side uncut. Make sure you do not cut the wave design all the way through the sides.

We made 7 wavy lines on this card front. Can you see that beautiful wavy lines cut on the craft card stick below? 

Trim 3 strips approximately 1x5 inches from decorative paper.


Weave the strips into the waves forming a basket weave like pattern. 
TIP! To do this simply alternate over, under, over, under, etc. The next strip will start under, over, under, over, etc. The last strip will be the same as the first; over, under, etc.  

Spread the strips evenly from side to side until you have it spaced how you like it. Secure the pattern paper strips to the craft card front on the top and bottom of the card using some liquid glue.






That looks so pretty! 




Fussy cut, punch from decorative paper or grab a beautiful butterfly from your stash. Bend the wings up for added dimension. Attach just the center of the butterfly to the card front with wet glue.


Adhere the finished card front to the card base using some foam tape and, ta da, the card is ready. Add your sentiment when you need the card.
