Sick of Boring Cards? Try This Cool Technique!


This tutorial is brought to you by Latrice Murphy from Any Occasion.

Today I have something really fun for you to try. Have you heard of molding paste? This stuff is used mostly on canvases by artists, but as a crafter, I’ve found that it’s amazing for scrapbooking and cards. With so many choices out there for masks or stencils, I’m sure you’ll find some you love to play with.

I created a bold card for you using a chevron mask. My pictures tutorial shows a second style that is larger and has a zig zag pattern. I wanted you to see the difference in the two.

Here is what you’ll need:

First create your card from cardstock and layer bright white on top, leaving 1/8” all around.

Trim a second piece of white cardstock down to 3-¾” x 5” and tape down using washi tape or other easily removable tape.

Next, tape your mask or stencil down where you would like it.

Using a pain spatula spread your modeling paste evenly and removed the stencil.

After it has dried for about two hours, you can ink with a sponge and mist randomly with spray mists.

Lastly adhere your banner sentiment and gemstones.


Tip: This is an easy process, but drying time is long. Do a bunch at a time to have on hand when you need a quick card.
