The Art of Crafty Card-Making

Hey there!Β  Lately scrap-booking and card-making have been my form of escapism.
It requires you to think creatively and use what you have to create something that matches
the theme of your photo or the personality of the person you are making a card for. Here are some ideas on card-making,
along with some of my favourite techniques, methods and supplies…

My Supplies

I use a variety of supplies when creating my cards. Some of them include stamps, watercolours, papers, pens, and stickers.

Stamps

Another one of my favourite techniques is stamping. It’s easy, fun and if done properly can, it can look beautiful!

 P1010882 Use mixed media! Don't think because you've used a matte paper that you can't use a glossy one! Or because you've used stamping you can't use stickers! Mixing and matching is key in creating an attractive card!
 P1010890 Use tags on smaller gifts instead of using a card. I made this one using a piece of 
cardstock, washi tape and stamping.
 
 
 P1010879 Use watercolours! Using paint on cards can often be daunting, but the end result 
can look highly professional.

And last of all, some colour inspiration! Never be afraid to use colour!

Use all those tips and tricks and voila!
