Cute Posey card tutorial

I did a tutorial for this card a few years back when my blog was in it's infancy.....not very many followers at that time, so I thought I should repost it and revamp the tutorial, now that I have a little more experience! This card is super EASY! I hope you enjoy it!!

Doesn't it just scream SUMMER?

Here are the supplies you need:

-super duper cute paper!  I choose "Quite Contrary" by My Minds Eye.  I love paper that coordinates without me having to think!
-3 buttons
-3 1/2 x 5 card with envelope (you can just cut up a 8 1/2 piece of white cardstock to 2 cards this size!)
-glue dots (gives extra strength to keep the buttons on)
-ric rack (I used green)

First you take a green piece of patterned paper and measure it a tiny bit small than the size of your card.  Can you see my little pencil marks?  

Then you take the paper and rip. Yes, you heard me, start ripping where you marked the paper.  Do it slowly and try to rip in a semi-straight line.

This is about what it should look like when your done!  There should be lots of white paper from the card showing around the edges.  Glue the paper down to the card.

Now, here's the fun part!  Can you see where I drew a flower wiley niley on the pretty flower paper?  Just free hand it.  You can't really screw up, promise!  Then cut it out.

Take that cute little flower and smash it and smash it till it is very wrinkled and you think you ruined it!  It's gonna look fabulous, trust me.

Then, make 2 more flowers like that, and glue them onto the card.  Next, cut the rick rack to the size you need for a stem.  I just measured it from the flower down to the bottom of the card.  Glue the stems down leaning them so they are not sticking straight up, but leaning away from each other. 

 Take a tiny piece of ric rack and tie it in a knot, as seen in the picture above (these are the leaves).  Glue the leaves onto the stems in different places.  

Take some of your green paper to make the grass.  I just randomly cut into the paper making jagged slits in the paper.  Then cute them off to make short little pieces of grass.  Glue each blade on the card as seen in the pictures below.

I know I took a ton of pictures, but I am a visual person:)

Glue the buttons on last with the glue dots.  This will keep those babies on.  Cute, huh?  This is my favorite card!  Could be for any occasion!

Thanks so much for stopping by....
