Vellum Confetti Packet Card

When you can whip up a greeting card as quick and easy as this one there’s absolutely no need to wait for next party to throw a little confetti around!

This playful card just uses some very basic supplies, along with minimal sewing skills, and your Fuse Creativity System®. Let’s get started.

First you’ll need to cut cardstock for your card base. Cut your brown cardstock to 7” x 10”. Fold in half and crease the fold.

Use your Apron Lace Border Punch to punch along the length of both strips.

Next you’ll cut a piece of patterned paper to 4” x 7”. Then, cut two strips of green cardstock measuring 1 ½” x 8”. Use your Apron Lace Border Punch to punch along the length of both strips. Adhere each strip along the long sides of the patterned paper. Trim border overhang and then adhere to card base, centered.

Layer your Scalloped Oval Die-Cut with your Chair Press Plate

Layer your Scalloped Oval Die-Cut with your Chair Press Plate. Add a 4 ½” square piece of vellum on top, and then cover with the Medium Cutting Plate. Crank the stack through your Fuse.

Then, remove the Chair Press Plate and layer the Scalloped Oval Die-cut with a 4 ½” square piece of vellum, and then, cover with the Medium Cutting Plate. Crank through the Fuse so you have only a die-cut scalloped oval with no press.

Layer these two pieces together and sew around the perimeter with your sewing machine or hand-stitching, leaving a 2” gap

Layer these two pieces together and sew around the perimeter with your sewing machine or hand-stitching, leaving a 2” gap. Then, Add confetti to the pressed vellum pocket along with a little sprinkle of beads &/or glitter. Sew gap of pocket completely closed.
