Judi here! Graduation time is coming soon and I thought it would be fun to have a stack of Good Luck cards ready to send. I made them with my ‘By-the-Batch’ method –– one morning of cutting and layering and all ten cards were done. Suzanne Cannon’s Good Luck die is a perfect size for a card front!
Good Luck cards are useful year-round, just right for friends starting a job or moving to a new home, picking themselves up after a divorce, entering retirement, opening a business, entering retirement, and more…
Here’s how to whip up an easy batch of Good Luck cards:
- Choose cardstock and patterned papers in coordinating colors to go with the ten 4” x 5” pieces in a Shimmer Sheetz Iridescent Sampler Pack. (Or choose the Gemstone Sampler Pack.)
- Using the smallest die in the Stitched Ovals die set, cut a cardstock oval to layer onto each piece of Shimmer Sheetz.
- Die cut Good Luck ten times, coordinating colors with ovals and Shimmer Sheetz.
- Emboss and lightly sand each piece of Shimmer Sheetz. Wipe with damp paper towel.
- Using the photos as a reference, layer and adhere pieces onto ten patterned top-fold card bases measuring 4.25” high by 5.25” wide (.25” narrower than a standard A2 size). Use three pieces of narrow Washi tape to secure the Good Luck die cuts! Optional: Back the cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhersive Sheet before die cutting Good Luck; skip the Washi tape.
TIP: Use the same By-the-Batch strategy to make birthday, anniversary, get well, or sympathy cards. Vary embossing folders to suit the occasion(s).
