Bridge Card with Prima Marketing Havana Collection

Welcome back crafter friends and happy weekend to you.  I am sharing today how to create a bridge card and shabby chic flowers used for my sample bridge cards.   This is a really impressive looking card and how simple it actually is compared to how beautiful you can make your bridge card look! The whole card collapses flat to easily fit in a regular medium envelope. Love it! Ok, now, this is just too much fun! Turn off your computer, go get in the craft room and try this one right away.

I have two bridge card samples using the gorgeous Prima Marketing Havana paper, Havana chipboard and Prima Marketing Havana Rose Words and Stickers.   The Brigide card will fold down to fit in an envelope.  

Tutorial for Making a Bridge Card
To begin, you'll need:

  • Sturdy plain and patterned cardstock 
  • Embellishments 
  • Score board 
  • Adhesive such as the Beacon 3 n 1 Advance glue and/or Scor Tape

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5:  Depending on what you want in the center of the card, I cut out a 3" x 4 3/4" patterned paper and glued on the inside of the card.  If you want a sentiment, I cut out one 2 1/2" x 4 1/4" white cardstock paper, stamp the sentiment and glued in the center.  Then glue the last strip to the front of the card as shown below or add a sentiment to the strip and then glue to front of the card.  Embellish the card and have fun finishing it with ribbons, charms, stickers, etc.    

I made my shabby chic flower with the Prima Marketing Havana paper.  I cut out two sizes of the flower petals.  I used 1/2" x 1/2" double sided Scor-Tape to the center of the flower and then stuck pink lace in the center and glue the other patterned paper flower for the next layer of the flower.

Thank you for coming to see what my tutorials were about today! 

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!
