Imagine. Create. Enjoy.

Hello! It’s good to have you here right now.

Today, I am going to take you through a fun tutorial on how to make your own handmade greeting card, using mixed media supplies. Are you ready?

Supplies to Gather:

Step 1:

Place your stencils on top of a piece of copy paper.

Step 2:

Place your second piece of copy paper on top of the stencils.

Step 3:

Apply paint and scrape with a plastic card.

Step 4:

Use a contrasting colored pencil to rub over the stencil(s).

Step 5:

Savor the texture and loveliness.

Steps 6 and 7:

Set a blank greeting card on an old flier.

Use your glue stick to cover the outside of the card.

Step 8:

Apply your colorful copy paper to the glue, and burnish down.

Trim off the excess paper, and voila!

Enjoy sending your card to someone special!
