Read the Step-by-Step Guide Below:
Get your tags. As you can see I chose brown and white so that I could create a lovely contrast on my card. Tear half of it, as seen below. Remember that we are purposely doing this to create a rough design and texture to our card.
Once you are done tearing the upper part, you may now stick it directly on top of your other tag.
Next, get your pens and you can now start doodling plants or flowers into your tag. As for me, I used white for the brown and black for the white. The alternating colors give us that lovely contrast we are aiming for!
Sometimes you might not feel confident on what you are going to draw, and that's fine! But my recommendation is just go for it! Have a feel of what you want, and you will definitely get that desired outcome!
Stick your beautiful tag into your card as seen below, and use a box cover- it can be a circle, square or any shape you want that you think might create a different dimension to your card. Just make sure it's just the right size for your card.
For me, I used a hexagonal cover from my hand cream. Then you go directly over the top where your drawing transitions.
Then, do the same thing- keep the black on the bottom and white on top. This is such a great modern take to your designs!
What a cool and funky card! I just love the negative and positive effect on our design!
You can also create your designs directly on your card like this. I just used my embossing powders- silver and copper to create this fantastic design!
