A Quick Card Tutorial

Hello and Welcome to Scrappy Chat Designs! It's Heather with you today with a share on how to create a card. I made this with my Enchanted Garden kit. This kit is AWESOME! It has gorgeous papers, a full-sized stencil, some Shimmerz Creameez, stunning small flowers, twine and more.

Scrappy Chat Designs members receive Tech Sheets showing how to make many of the projects the Design Team creates, but I had so much fun with this one that I thought I'd share it with everybody!

Firstly, here's the card:

See those flecks of gold? I bet you can't work out how I made those!

Here are the instructions for making the card. All of the products listed here are in the kit unless stated otherwise.

Step 1

Cut your white cardstock to be a little smaller than the black card base. Put the card base aside for now.

Step 2

Apply some of your own texture paste roughly through the stencil, keeping away from the right side corners. 

Step 3

Mix a little water with the Shimmers Creameez and apply randomly over the texture paste with a brush.

Step 4

When dry, highlight a few of the triangles with a black pen. Add some cotton thread from your stash by just scrunching it up and sitting it roughly over the coloured area.

Step 5

Cut some flowers and leaves from the 'Darling' paper and adhere to the left side. Splatter Creameez over the top with a brush. Cut a triangle shape from the 'Darling' paper and a butterfly from the 'Frilly' paper and ink the edges.

Step 6

Ink the edges of one of the butterfly stickers and adhere the two butterflies on the triangle. Place the triangle on the left as shown and trim the part that extends beyond the edge. Trim the sentiment from the 'Frilly' paper, ink the edges and adhere in place.

Step 7

Take two of the small plastic flowers - and cut them into tiny pieces! Glue the pieces randomly around the card for some cool sparkle. Adhere your work to the black card base and you're done!

And there you have it! So far, I've made two layouts and a card from this kit and I still have heaps of product left!
