I Think Pink Is My Colour || Card Tutorials || Dovecraft Pink Goody Bag

Hi all,

I have some cards to share today, along with some step by step instructions so you can try making them for yourself. 
They are all made using the Dovecraft pink goody bag from Trimcraft (they come in other colours too, I received the pink and black in my design team kit.) I also used a little of the black for one of the cards.


  1.  Cut two 5x14cm rectangles from textured cardstock. Mark the centre both vertically and horizontally and die cut a heart directly in the centre. Die cut another equidistant from this heart and the top, and the same from the bottom. Do this for the other piece of cardstock too.
  2. Cut another 5x14cm piece, this time from patterned paper. Add three of the die cut hearts down the centre, using the pieces you cut them from as a template. Use 3D foam tape for this so they stand out. Add 3D pearl effects around the edges of the top and bottom.
  3. Cut two more 5x14cm pieces of patterned paper. Using the pieces the hearts are die cut from, stick them on top with 3D foam dots. 
  4. In the top heart of one and bottom of the other, stick small buttons.
  5. In the top and bottom of the opposites, die cut a filigree heart and add to the centre.
  6. Arrange all three pieces on a 6x6" card blanks.
  7. Finish with a sentiment and adhesive gems.



  1. Cut a piece of patterned paper to 14.5cm square and stick to a 6x6" card blank.
  2. Layer up paper flowers, alternating between pink and black. Add a large adhesive gem in the centre. Stick to a die cut star. Add thread behind each layer to add texture.
  3. Stick this to two small rectangles of patterned paper and then stick to the card.
  4. Die cut small gears and tuck in between the flowers and layered papers.
  5. Die cut a sentiment and stick to the card.
  6. Add ribbon on either side of the card.
  7. Finish with ink spatters.


  1. Take a card blank from the goody bag.
  2. Using small heart dies, arrange on the card blank front and die cut. Keep going until there are apertures across the front of the card.
  3. Using up scraps, stick a scrap behind each aperture and leave to dry.
  4. Add patterned paper on the inside of the card to cover up the back of the scraps and ensure a professional finish for your recipient.
  5. Finish with a sentiment. 
Thanks for stopping by!
