Love My Tribe card with Jillibean & Xyron

Hi, Friends!
I'm back with Team Xyron and this week we are partnering up with Jillibean Soup to bring you all the pretty things!


 And I want to show you how I created this homage to those pretty sweet people that are near and dear to my heart; my clan, my adoptive family... MY TRIBE.


Supplies Used
Creative Station Lite (Xyron)
Mega Runner (Xyron)
Black Cardstock
Hemp Twine 
Red Button
Foam Tape
Clear Sparkle Pen (Spectrum Noir)
Paper Trimmer

For this card, I used Jillibean Soups Bohemian Brew Collection Pack. It's filled with polka dots, tropical florals, and retro minibusses! This is such a fun and cheerful collection!!

I decided to make my card 5"x 7" (folded) and cut the base out of black cardstock. 

I trimmed the papers to the following sizes:
Content (red polka dot) paper - 4 3/4" x 6 3/4".
Black cardstock #1 - 4"x 6"
Happiness (light teal flower) paper- 3 3/4"x 5 3/4"
Black cardstock #2 - 3 1/4"x 4 1/4"

Then I trimmed out the most perfect sentiment from the Bite Size Bits sheet (printed cards) that reads, "Love My Tribe". 


I ran each piece of cardstock and patterned paper through my Xyron Creative Station Lite machine, gave them a good burnishing then layered them.

Before adhering my sentiment, I punched out a few berry twigs and flowers. I used my Xyron Mega Runner to quickly attach them to the card front. Then, layered the sentiment onto the card. 

I added foam adhesive to the back of the flower punch out to give it a little dimension. Then attached it in between the berry stems.


Then, I added a bow made from hemp twine and topped it with a red button.

Then, Finally, I highlighted areas with my clear sparkle pen over the flowers and berries for some shine... because, let's face it, I need some sparkle!


And her is my finished card...


Just a subtle shine...


I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial!!
