Hello everyone ! It’s Guest Polly Gaelle here and today I’m here to share with you my process to create a card. In this example, I will show you how I create a card for my son’s birthday. But I like creating card just to say “hello” or to tell someone to have a nice day.
So the first thing, I made is to choose the principal collection I will use. As my son loves the red color, I’ve chosen to use the Mixed Media Collection from August 2020 Music Speaks and its add-ons.
Then I create a new folder and inside I will copy all the elements and papers that I really love and want to use in my project. Sometimes, I have lots of elements, sometimes only few. It depends the feeling I want to give on my card. But here, I want something huge and messy. So I selected lots of elements (for me ;-) ).
After, I open my favorite program and put on the background all the papers and elements I’ve copied before. Yes, yes, all the papers and elements. So far, I have many layers. But no worries. I hide them all for a first time.
Then, I build my card with only these papers and elements and place them where I want. I play with the blending modes too. I have fun.
Now, everything is has a good place, it’s time to add few details like gesso, stamps or stitches. And my card is ready.
Little Butterfly Wings, Paula Kesselring, Rachel Jefferies, Lynn Grieveson : M3 August ’20 Music Speaks . collection, add-ons
Pink Reptile Designs : Gesso it vol1
Rachel Jefferies : Messy Machine Stitching 6
After, if you want to can print the card or send it by mail ;-)
I hope you enjoyed reading my process, and I hope to come back here so share you an other card.
