Free Step by Step Guide on how to make a handmade card

Thank you for visiting the blog today – I have made this card using the pressed petals designer series paper and the sailing home stampset by Stampin’ Up!

I combined the two with the lovely mossy meadow colour to make a rustic, vintage themed card.

This set is featured in our Annual Catalogue – why not Contact me to get a free copy.

I hope you like it.

Instructions and Measurements

Card Base and DSP Layer
My card base measures 4 1/8″ x 5 7/8″ (Half an A4 sheet cut in half down long side and folded in the middle).
My DSP layer measures 4″ x 5 3/4″.
I ripped parts of the DSP and blended some mossy meadow ink around the tears and the edges of the layer.

Sentiment Area
Add a piece of Mossy meadow and fray the edges using either a fraying tool or scissors (please be careful).
Add a piece of very vanilla card stock as the stamping layer, again fraying the edges but this time, blend some mossy meadow around the edges too. 

Stamp your sentiment and image of choice in co-ordinating mossy meadow.
I used 2nd generation stamping here (ie stamp off on plain scrap paper first then apply to your card).

If you are adding twine around this layer like I did, add it at this point before adhering to your matt layer.


Add jewels or embellishments of your choice – I chose the clear epoxy shapes.
