Autumn Robin Card

Isn’t the robin an adorable bird? This gentle feathered friend was found on a paper napkin and is an excellent embellishment for this fall card.

The card was created using clear contact foil for the design which gives the card a shiny professional look. 3-D foam tape was used for a second robin motif as well to add a bit of dimension to the card.



Fall Robin Greeting Card 1

For this project you will need:

- white square card 13.5 x 13.5 cm in size
- small paper napkin with a robin motif or motif of choice
- clear one-sided adhesive contact foil
- white and orange cardstock
- stick glue
- 3-D foam tape or foam pads

Fall Robin Greeting Card 4
The paper napkin that was used for this project is actually smaller than the card itself. You will need a paper napkin in which each quarter has at least identical motifs, as you will need the main motif twice.


1. If you like the shiny look, follow the tutorial in the tutorial link below to learn about how to use the contact paper technique. The technique “Creating Paper Napkin Motifs Using Contact Paper, Stick Glue and Cardboard” found down towards the center of that page was used for this card. There are other techniques on that page and you can, of course, use any of them to create your card.

2. For this card, two napkin quarters were used. The first napkin quarter was used as a whole image. The napkin was covered with the foil and then adhered onto white cardstock with the stick glue. Then it was cut out to a 11.7 cm square. The cardstock was then cut with a 0.5 mm white border around the napkin motif. Now the square measures 12.2 cm.

3. The white square was then adhered to orange cardstock and again cut out with a 0.5 mm border and now measures 12.7 cm.

4. Then the square was adhered onto the card.

5. Now you need the second napkin quarter. All you need is the robin itself. Adhere contact foil over the robin motif and cut it roughly out around the robin - you do not have to be exact at this time. Glue the robin onto white cardstock and now you cut it exactly out. Adhere the robin onto the card over the first image using 3-D foam tape.
