Meet cardmaking teacher and blogger Danielle Flanders and get an introduction to mixing patterned papers, adding washi tape for a gorgeous aesthetic and using die cuts and layering techniques to build beautiful textured looks.
Embossing provides a professional look and a wonderful chunky texture to your cards. Danielle demonstrates ways to use embossing folders and machines to dry-emboss your papers. Then explore fun ways to incorporate heat embossing into your card projects. Next, learn how to add even more "wow" factor with sparkly, shiny embellishments.
Explore ways to use vellum in your work as you create two cards: one with a gorgeous vellum frame and one that has a darling pocket. Use text, card stock, stamps and more to create a one-of-a-kind layered sentiment. Danielle also shares troubleshooting tips to keep each piece safely secured.
Embellishments make your designs more visually appealing and elaborate, and they're just plain fun, as well! Danielle shares ideas for incorporating buttons, brads, twine, stickers, chipboards and much more, resulting in a multi-dimensional piece.
Blend some of the techniques you learned in prior lessons as you emboss and stamp vellum to create a chic, formal look. Danielle shows you how to layer your card to create a focal point that leaps off the page, playing with color and lots of textures that offer a treat for the eyes.
Push your creativity to a new level as you explore alternatives to paper that make dazzling cards. Learn how to incorporate embellishments such as felt, cork sheets, binding and twine in a variety of projects, ranging from elegant to whimsical in style.
Whether you're an avid sewist or you've never sewn a button, this lesson offers techniques for crafters of all skill levels. Danielle shows you how to stitch words, borders, embellishments and more to add darling custom details to any style of card, sewing by hand or with a machine.
