1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Has anyone ever on: June 29, 2007 01:17:25 PM
I started out cardmaking by buying a card making kit from QVC, I found it very useful as it gave me all the basics, along with some design ideas. Now, I tend not to buy the kits, unless they are particularly beautiful. I do however, occasionally, buy small kits for my dd (aged 7) to use - she loves them.

Probably the easiest/cheapest way to start out cardmaking is to use plain white card - thick enough that it will stand by itself when folded, then either print onto the card in a colour/design that you like, or cover with scrapbook paper or similar. There are loads of different websites which will allow you to download backing papers etc - try some of the digital scrapbooking sites. Then build up your design onto the base card.

You could cover the spine using layers of tissue paper, sealed with something like mod podge, or watered down pva.
You could also try heat embossing the spine - build up a few layers, bend it a little so that the embossing starts to crack, then rub gilding paste into the cracks - gives a really nice effect.
Or, maybe use a wide ribbon or other fabric to cover the spine.

You could also make a master sheet by copying and pasting in any word processor document. Simply open your document, use the insert command to get your image, resize as neccessary. Then right click the image, chose copy, then right click again and click paste. You may need to move the image to where you need it, depending on your wp, just paste as many times as you need til the sheet is full. Hope this helps. Smiley

Hi there
Just thought I would introduce myself - I'm a stay at home mum, with 4 children - 3 of whom still live at home. I'm into all sorts of different crafts - altered art projects, atc's, cards, scrapbooking, jewellery making, beading, knitting, cross-stitch. Look forward to getting to know some of you, and to seeing some of your projects.
