Creating Cards in Multiples

After a weekend out of town at Creativation 2017 and a super busy month ahead, I have been making lists and multitasking.  I decided to try to get ahead with all the upcoming birthdays by creating a production line of sorts for making cards.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

I created somewhat of a production line for my cards by setting up a block of plain manilla tags and a couple of the 12×12 circular patterned stencils, shown below.


First, I used a several different mists to add a gradient base of color.

Laying out the tags in groups of four, I added mint, teal and fascia mist and some water droplets to create a little texture.

After letting the tags dry, I used this intricate floral stencil and layered it on top at the intersection of the 4 tags.

I used a metallic silver paired with the hot pink tags.  The paste helped the stencil stick to my craft mat and the design of the stencil turned out perfect.

You can see a little of the shine the silver catches in the light below.The Light & Fluffy modeling paste is the perfect medium for adding and mixing custom colors.  I mixed the dark teal with the awesome fluffy paste.

The geometric sunburst is one of my favorite stencils, and using the colored paste, I added a thick layer in the same way I used the previous stencil.  I love that the center of the circular pattern is in each corner.

Setting the tags aside to dry, I used the small word stencil to heat emboss a black sentiment onto vellum.

I trimmed the vellum ‘Life’ sentiment into tiny flags and punched a scallop circle out of the ‘friend’ sentiment.

To finish up I trimmed the tags with twine and some patterned paper behind several of the tags.

Finally, I adhered all my pieces to a white card stock base.

I hope you are inspired to stock up your handmade cards with this idea.  Thanks for stopping by the Blog today and PRODUCTS Used:
