Tutorial Tuesday with Brandi: Making a Mixed Media Card from Start to Finish!

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Hello fellow crafters!!!  I'm up on the Frosted Design's Blog today with a tutorial for a mixed media card!  Let's take a look, shall we?!?

I used this month's Garden of Abundance Kit which was designed by yours truly!  Here's my finished card (I used the current sketch #109 over at Cardabilities by the ever-so-talented Karen Gerber!):


Now, here's a look at how I made this cad in just a few simple steps!
 First, grab the papers you want to use and measure them to size (4.75x6.75 here to mount on 5x7 card base).  Add some texture using your favorite stencil and molding paste or something similar.  Ink the edges with the lighter ink in the kit, making sure to come in some on the actual card.  Finish the edges with black ink.  


Ink the edges of your outer piece, then use a distress tool around all the edges!  Grab some chipboard (flourish 18 used here from the Creative Embellishments Store) and color it with your favorite mediums! Layer it all on your card base and embellish as desired :-)

See how easy that is?!?  Here are some close-ups:




And here is another card I created this month's fabulous kit!  Details for this one can be found here!!!


Well gang...  Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
