How to Create a Multi-Layered Card

June 23, 2017

Hello Crafty Friends,

When I saw the new and beautiful Keepsake Collection I thought it would be perfect for making a heavily embellished card.  I decided to film a Process Video to match because I often get questions about how to begin a card that has lots of layers and embellishments, what colours and papers can be chosen to put together and what elements can be used.  Today I will show you exactly how I made this one from start to finish.

To make the card I began with some folded craft card stock measuring 23 x 17cm.  I cut some Photomontage (16.5 x 11cm) to fit the front of the card and a strip of Photomontage (reverse) measuring 5.5 x 16.5 cm.  I inked everything with Bark ink.  I layered the strip onto the card with mounting tape for extra dimension and this was the base of my card.  I chose the Photomontage Paper because I liked the shade of green and I liked the small white floral clusters.

I stamped onto the Photo Frames Acetate 12×12 sheet for the sentiment of my card, because I love the novelty of this Acetate sheet and I wanted to play with it again.  I used Stazon Ink to stamp onto the Acetate and it dried clearly without smudging.   I backed this sentiment with Captured paper, I chose this because I felt it was a slightly different colour to the other papers on the card, but still coordinated.  The thing with the Kaisercraft collections is that the colours are so well chosen you really can’t go wrong with your paper choice.  Everything matches really nicely so you can be confident with your paper choice.  I added sticker strips for extra details and chose a lovely flower cluster sticker for my main embellishment.  I wanted something large and floral.  This sticker was perfect.

I used my one of my most favourite Kaisercraft Decorative Dies ever DD757 Large Flourishes .  If you haven’t purchased this Decorative Die yet you need to! It goes so well with Paper Blooms and most Kaisercraft Paper Collections.  I find it adds a little dimension and another layer to a Multi-Layered card.  I actually like to cut this die in half and pop it under some Paper Blooms.  The colour of the flowers I chose was Dusty Pink, another favourite of mine.  They co-ordinate nicely with lots of the Kaisercraft Paper Collections as well, so a very good colour to have in your craft supplies.

I chose some lovely Collectables to add to my card (leaves and butterflies are always good!) and layered everything together.  You see how I repositioned all the elements on the card until I was happy with it in the Process Video.

I love adding the little wooden shapes from the Kaisercraft Flourish Packs.  For this card I chose two photo frame corners from the Snapshot Pack.  Thes add another dimension to the card that is different from paper.  You can ink or colour these wooden flourishes, but for this card I chose to leave them in their original state.

Finally I embellished with some Chocolate Pearls.  This finishes the card off and again gives another texture to the card.  They can be added in groups of three or two, or whatever grouping you prefer.

Card Making Sage & Grace

Playing with cards and Sage & Grace

May 24, 2017

There’s nothing like discovering a collection that is pretty and very versatile! The possibilities for creating just seem endless and the creative juices start flowing! The new Sage & Grace collection is exactly that – pretty and versatile. The soft pastel colours with the beautiful imagery make creating projects so easy. Whether you are a scrapbooker or card maker you will just love this range. To top it all off there are also two of my favourite embellishments – ornate frames and butterflies :)

‘Love Always’ Card

Kaisercraft products used: PP1019 Paper Pad | CD651 Craft cardstock | CT881 Sage & Grace Collectables | PL505 Pearl Strips – Latte

I love using the different frames and layering them with foam tape to create dimensions on the card.

How beautiful is this butterfly? The dusky pink is such a fabulous colour!

‘Happy Birthday’ Card

Kaisercraft products used: PP1019 Paper Pad | CD651 Craft cardstock | CT881 Sage & Grace Collectables |  RS453 Rhinestone Strips – Pink |  SB701 Rhinestones – Soft Pink | IT446 Designer Template – Bloom |  F640 Paper Blooms – Fairy Floss | F657 Paper Blooms Mini – Fairy Floss |  KM111 Kaiser Mist – White |

OTHER:  Texture Paste Opaque

Layering the florals from the Paper Pad along with some paper blooms adds gorgeous tones and textures to the card

By using an opaque texture paste instead of white, you get a soft textured impression on the card rather than an obvious and hard white one. This adds interest to the page without distracting from the gorgeous Sage & grace elements on the card

I hope you enjoy creating with this stunning collection! Happy crafting
