Mixed Media Cardmaking

Hi there lovelies,

When it comes to cardmaking, I like to play around and use a variety of techniques.

Have you tried making these:

  1. Digistamp cards - using images or drawings or digital stamps as a focal point on your cards. 
  2. Die cut cards - using dies to cut elements and use as a focal point on your cards.
  3. Mixed Media Cards - using a variety of art product and techniques on your cards.
  4. Layered Cards - using a variety of elements and layering on your cards
  5. Box cards - exploding box cards where you open the box and all the layered elements are revealed.
Can you think off more types of cards? Leave a comment to this post. 

Here is an example of a card I worked on recently. I don't have the final image availalbe but I thought to share the close-ups to show you the results of mixing mediums. 

Products used:
Paper from my stash and white cardstock
A variety of inks including my favourite Vegas Gold All Purpose Ink
Gold acrylic paint from our local brand Dala

Flower elements cut with Silhouette Cameo

Stitching pattern: Basic flower design

'Till next time!
