Card Making Techniques 0

May 04, 2009 | Card Making Techniques

There are so many different card making techniques to experiment with, so I thought I would share a few of my favourite. Here they are:

1. Using foam tape. I love foam tape for adding that extra dimension to my cards and making elements pop. It works particularly well when layering different elements on top of each other.

2. Layering different pieces of patterned paper or cardstock to create unique backgrounds. This is a fabulous card making technique that makes your design look sophisticated and advanced, even though it is very easy to do.

3. Embellishing with ribbon. Ribbon adds texture and dimension to your cards. Soft organza ribbons are perfect for formal cards like wedding cards, baby shower cards and get well cards. But, there are also hundreds of bright, funky ribbons also available for more playful and fun designs.

4. Rubbing an ink pad around the edges of the different elements making up the card. As I mentioned in a previous post, I love this effect for creating an aged or worn feel to my designs.

5. Cutting out flowers, hearts and other shapes from scrapbooking papers to create not only unique one-of-a-kind embellishments for my cards but cheap embellishments too! Scrapbooking papers offer an endless range of possibilities for creative and stylish embellishments.

These are just a few of my favourite card making techniques. I look forward to sharing more of them with you. If you would like to learn more techniques, join Card Making Classroom now for free weekly card classes sent through email.
