DIY: Confetti Card

Posted on January 16, 2013 and tagged DIY

It feels like it's been forEVER since I've done a little crafty DIY post, and I guess it has. I had a lot of fun making this confetti card. It's great to have cards like this laying around that you can use for just about anything. Leave the centre blank until you need it then just write (or stamp) in your own little message.

Materials

  • blank greeting card
  • thick cardstock for stencil
  • scissors
  • acrylic paints (any colours you want)
  • new pencils with erasers for stamping

1// Cut out a circle from your cardstock. I traced a roll of tape to get it perfect.

2// Tape the circle to the centre of a blank card using painters tape. Also, tape off the edge of the card so you don't get any paint on the back.

3// Start stamping with the eraser ends of the pencils. I used a different pencil for each colour so they didn't get muddy.

4// Concentrate more of the dots towards the circle and less near the edges of the card.

Now just wait for everything to dry, which won't take long, and peel off the stencil and the tape. The card is ready for your message in the centre, so say anything you want!
