Our These are My People papers and stickers are full of vibrant colors and patterns which I chose to use on this Simply Stickers card. Many of you probably use stickers primary for scrapbooks, but did you know that they are also perfect for your card making projects. Let me share with you a few ways that you can use stickers on your handmade cards.
Cut Them Up to Fit Your Project
Don’t panic! It’s okay to cut apart your stickers. Let’s take a look at what the These are My People sticker sheet looks like.
Do you see that Green Border strip with the dots at the top? That is the sticker I cut apart to create the top and bottom border of my card. I simply placed the sticker sheet into my paper trimmer, and cut off the dots.
Color Your Stickers to Make Them Pop
Sometimes, stickers need a little color. On the sticker sheet, the two larger rose stickers had white leaves and the small rose was completely white. To bring more of the green color in from my border and heart, I used watercolors to shade the leaves. The small rose was shaded pink.
Use the Phrases As Sentiments
Many of our sticker sheets come with fun phrases for your scrapbook pages. These phrases also make wonderful card sentiments. You can chose to use them as is, or use them to create a sentence like I did on my Lilac Dragonfly Card. On this card, I used the bold, typeset sentiment across the bottom of the card. I like how it grounds the images and puts the focus on the sentiment.
I hope that today’s project inspired you♥ to pull out a few of your sticker sheets and create a some cards for your home dwelling friends.
