May 2014 - Faux Silk Technique

Stamp on tissue, crinkle it up and adhere it to cardstock for a soft silky look.
Faux Silk Technique

·        Stamp on Tissue (Ink will bleed through the tissue, color carefully)

·        Let it dry

·        Crinkle it up

·        Smooth it out CAREFULLY

·        Adhere it to cardstock for a soft silk look. We are using Stampin’ Up! Glue sticks, first time I have ever used these and I think that they are just great for a project like this!
We will create two great technique cards and our Fancy Fold card for the month turned out so pretty.  Let's begin!

Using a brad on the front, adds alittle weight to our card and will help it stay closed.
