Back To School - Pebbles Girl Squad Cards

Hi friends! For Pebbles I created a few "back to school" cards which I haven't posted here yet. I love making cards especially with the fabulous Girl Squad collection!!

What I love about Pebbles’ Girl Squad collection is that it can easily be used to create projects for boys as well. For those of you who want to know how I made them, here’s a quick tutorial.

To Begin:

Cut a piece of cardstock measuring 4″ x 12″; fold it in half (the cards measure 4″ x 6″).  Cut two strips of patterned paper: one measuring 2″x 6″ and the other 0.5″ x 6″.  Grab your Thickers words, washi tape, die-cuts, (puffy) stickers, enamel dots and a white Sharpie:

1. Fold the piece of cardstock in half and cover the bottom with the 2″ x 6″ strip of patterned paper:

2. Add the 0.5″ x 6″ strip of patterned paper to the top of paper from step 1; also add a piece of washi tape beneath:

3. Glue a die-cut in the top right corner and adhere one of Thickers words above the patterned paper:

4. Add one of the smaller die-cuts in the bottom left corner and (in this case) a sticker above the Thickers word:

5. Create a little cluster in the bottom left corner by adding three enamel dots and a die-cut. Add a puffy sticker as well, overlapping half onto the sticker above the Thickers word:

6. Last but not least, use a white pen to doodle a line along the edge of the top half of the card:

That’s it!

I used this same concept for all three cards and I really like how they turned out. Hope you do too!

Here are all three of them together:
