Quick & Easy Card Tutorial

Today I thought I'd do a quick card tutorial.  Most of the time I start with a "vision" of what I want to create.  Sometimes it turns out exactly as planned, and sometimes I take "detours" along the way.  Well, this morning I didn't have a clear plan, and I took lots of detours:))  But, that's okay.  Sometimes it's nice to just take out some supplies and go for it! That's what I did today…

Websters doilie card (1 of 1) I started with a piece of Webster's Hollywood Vogue paper that I cut to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2," folded on the 8 1/2" side, and crease with a bone folder.  I had a paper doilie I thought I could somehow incorporate.

Websters doilie card (1 of 1)-5 I've been looking for an excuse to use the Melissa Frances Glass Glitter I bought awhile back.  The color was right, so I gave it a shot.  I applied it using my Zig 2-Way glue pen (love that baby!).  I kinda like it!

  1. I love your fearless attack and “why not?” attitude. I have no skills with papercrafts but I love seeing how other people do it. Beautiful card! Thanks for linking up to Finished for Friday.

  2. This card is fantastic as always! I have a question about your glass glitter, Is it real glass? I got some on e-bay and when I got it the instructions said that it could cut you or stick into your fingers so I haven’t used it. Thank-you….

Thanks for visiting House Revivals.Make sure that the credit card shape is placed on top of your line art and that you’ve duplicated your credit card background as well.
