Hello Pebbles fans!! It’s Monique here today wishing you a happy World Kindness Day! To celebrate this holiday I thought I’d create a set of cards to send to a few good friends, just “to be kind”. I used the beautiful Heart of Home collection to make this set of elegant cards:
The Heart of Home collection is one of my very favorite Pebbles collections, it’s just perfect for every occasion with it’s beautiful colors & designs!
When I create cards I always make sure to finish the layers on top of the cardstock base first before glueing everything together, because often I want to add some stitching or use my stapler to adhere an embellishment and of course I don’t want the stitching or the back of a staple to be visible inside my cards. Like with this card below. I cut a cardstock base (6″x 4″) and put it aside. Next I cut two rectangles from the Family Matters patterned paper (back and front side) and glued them on top of each other. I also created a cluster for my card using a few die-cuts and two strips of paper cut from the Me To You patterned paper.
I machine stitched the two rectangles before assembling the card:
What a difference a bit of stitching makes, don’t you think?!
And this is how the finished card looks. Don’t you just love the Heart of Home dimensional stickers.
And this is how the other two cards look. For the card below I cut three tags in different sizes which I adhered half on top of each other. The sticker of the little birdie and the little strip of washi tape are the perfect finishing touches. Of course I had to add a bit of stitching as well, even if it’s only a tiny bit.
And for the last card I used the journaling card “I’ve got your back” (cut from the Heart of Home patterned paper) which seems the perfect sentiment for World Kindness Day.
I really like how these cards turned out! Hope I’ve been able to inspire you to create a few cards for World Kindness Day as well!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you a wonderful World Kindness Day!
