Breast Cancer Encouragement Card

This Brest Cancer Encouragement Card tells anyone who receives it to keep fighting and that you are behind them. It is an important message. Show someone that you are with them.

This is a lever card with a circle like the star of the Independence Day card.  They are simple cards to make.  The card is a 5X5 card but I would use a 6X6 envelope for mailing because it is so thick.

You will need:
        • Pink or Red cardstock for the base
        • Various Cardstock scraps of pink
        • Pen
        • Glue
        • Download File
Paper Selection

This breast cancer encouragement card must be done in shades of pink.  I used a very subtle variegated red for the base and pink scraps for the rest of the card.  None of the paper really has to be 2 sided or too thick because of all the layering.

Cutting the Breast Cancer Encouragement card

Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing.  I used a black gel pen.  Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut?  You can see the trick here.  

Most of the images are cut out of the pink overlays which makes them very thin so be careful with them.  And the vine on the front is difficult to cut too.

Assembling the Breast Cancer Encouragement Card

First re crease the folds on both base cards.  Glue the first and last section of the four crease base card to the ends of the other base card.  With the back base card fold a valley fold and the middle fold on the other base card a mountain fold (the other two are valley folds), the card should stand.  Make sure the circle lines up and moves freely through the hole.

Next open the card and lay it flat.  The ribbon goes on the circle.  Then glue the pink overlays on the card   The circle cutouts tell you where those overlays go, or you can look at the pictures.
 
Once the inside of the card is together, close the card.  Check to make sure the card still opens and closes properly.  Then glue the square vine piece to the front of the card.  It is very thin so be careful handling it.  Then glue the big pink flourish frame, centering it on the circle.  And finally, the darker pink ring will cover all the base card that shows in the center of the pink flourish frame.

And your Breast Cancer Encouragement Lever Card is finished.
