Supplies Needed for the Sign Language Birthday Cards Project

A Creative Journey with Melissa Sign Language Sentiments

Acrylic Stamp Block

Card Base

Punch

Paper to stamp on

Twine

Paper Trimmer

Black Ink

Decorative Paper

Scissors

3-D Foam adhesive

Rhinestones

Place your sentiment on your acrylic block. Ink your sentiment and stamp on your paper.

Using the punch facing you, insert your sentiment ensuring your sentiment is lined up in the punch as shown.

Want to use your scraps but they aren’t long enough for your punch? Use a post it note. It extends your ability to put it in your punch and you can use smaller pieces of paper!

I used two pieces of paper that were in a 6 x 8″ pad that I knew I wouldn’t use. The paper is double sided and one side was perfect for cards so here we are! I trimmed the paper to be a little smaller than my card bases and trimmed them 1/2 inch smaller. Depending on what size your card, it will depend on what size you want your decorative paper.

For my I used 4 x 5.5″ card bases. My paper was trimmed 3.5″ x 5″. This left me with a few pieces that I can use in a different way on my cards. Simple, elegant and cute! Apply adhesive to the back of the decorative paper and adhere to the card base as you wish.

Add your 3-D foam adhesive to the back of your sentiment. Be sure to remove the protective backing.

Apply your sentiments to your card bases for your Sign Language Birthday Cards Project.

For the basic version of the Sign Language Birthday Cards Project, you are finished! Nothing fancy, no frills or embellishments. I wanted to give you a few other easy options. These aren’t super fancy but add a little pop to your Sign Language Birthday Cards Project. Ready?

Using your scissors, cut out a small triangle notch out of the top of your card like shown above.

Using some of your coordinating twine for your Sign Language Birthday Cards Project, push it through the inside of your card 3 times.

Once you have wrapped it three times, tie a bow or a knot and trim off the excess twine.

For this card, I simply wrapped twine around the left side of it to add a little pop and made a bow. YES! I did do it 3 times.

For the last Sign Language Birthday Cards Project card, I also wrapped twine around it but instead of tying a bow, I tied a knot.

Still not enough pop for you? Put on a few rhinestones to give a little sparkle to your card.
