The Marvy Markers got a workout this week, which was nice. For the male card, I took my starting point as this week's ColourQ colour scheme.
Shimelle's challenge to make a card with a circle design in the centre. I am really, really happy with this card! And yes, they are the letter stickers I'm talking about. So if you're interested, read on . . .
Step 1: In a word document, type out a full set of letters, numbers and whatever characters you want to use. YOU get to choose how many of each letter you would like, how many upper- and lower-case etc. But don't go too crazy, you can always print them out later. You'll want to have a space between each letter and a line space between each line.
Step 2: That's the tedious bit out of the way. Now you can copy and paste to make as many sets as will fit on one page. Make each set a different font and/or point size. If you're clever, you might want to label each set at this point . I didn't think of this until later, so I hand wrote it in the margin. (Don't forget to save the document for future use!)
Step 3: Print out onto thin cardstock. I printed mine onto white cardstock I bought especially for the printer. You could of course print onto coloured cardstock, or change your font colour, but again, don't go crazy, you only need to print them out just before you plan to use them.
Step 5: Run a length of double-sided tape across the back of each row
Step 6: Now it's just a matter of cutting out each letter as you need it. If you run out of a particular letter, you can always print more out!
