Layered card Tutorial

Hi Friends

I am back with yet another post where I am sharing a layered card tutorial with the beautiful Vintage Saga papers from Dress My Craft.

As difficult they may seem to look at but layered cards or layering for that matter isn't too tough. Here is how, follow my simple instructions and you can sure start creating layers if you don't already do that and if you do, you may still get some more ideas !

Just a sneak peek into what we are upto


1. I have cut my base paper in white, red and a pattern paper from the paper pad.


2. Next I have layered the papers with foam tape to start building dimension


3. Now I have arranged an old torn paper and two strips of pattern paper as shown. On the left is a piece of paper from the same paper pad - Vintage saga and on the right - chipboard pieces from stash


4. Here you can see how I have arranged the elements from step 3 and have the elements for next step ready - heat embossed


5. I have arranged two flowers and heat embossed circles. A dancing girl and bird cage fussy cut from motif sheet have been arranged too. And I have die cuts from dress my craft and butterflies from motif sheet, heat embossed bulb image stamped on vellum ready for next step.


6.  In the semi final step here - I have arranged the die cuts and butterflies too.


And this is the final look - with some sparkling dust and micro beads from Dress My Craft


And some close ups ... ta da !

Envelopes | DMC Scoreboard | Tutorial by Meher

Hello everyone,
Hope you're doing great. This is Meher back with another tutorial post with envelopes created using dress my craft scoreboard. Yes, I've not used any envelope punch board to create the base of the envelopes this time and I've played with beautiful bright colors. The paper collection that I used is called the charming baby girl collection which is again from Dress my craft and it is one of my favorite paper collection from Dress my craft. I've provided step by step instructions below on how I created these baby envelopes. Hope you like it. 

Colorful shaker envelope:




How to create:

  1. Take a white cardstock and score at 4" , 8.5", 10.5"
  2. Turn around and score at 1/2" , 7.5" , 8"
  3. Cut the extra cardstock from both the sides.
  4. Fold the cardstock and cut the extra strips of 1/2" from the 4" and 2" sides. 
  5. Stick them and punch the corners using Dmc 3 in 1 corner punch. I used the 10mm corner side. 
  6. Cut pattern paper for the base measuring the envelope and make sure you leave 1/8th of an inch white border on all the sides. 
  7. Pick another white cardstock measuring 6" by 3.5" and trim three strips.
  8. Attach foam tape behind the strips and stick it on a colored cardstock. I've used three different colors to make my envelope look bright. 
  9. Add some sequins and crystal cubes in the empty space.
  10. Attach an acetate sheet on top of the panel.
  11. Cut another panel on pattern paper using dmc mini trimmer and stick it on the existing panel. 
  12. Cut some images from the paper collection and including the beautiful pink curtain and adhere it using foam tape. Your envelope is ready.

Frosted Envelope:

  6. Cut two pattern papers for the base measuring the envelope and make sure you leave 1/8th of an inch white border on all the sides. 
  7. Pick a brad and fix at the center of the envelope and adhere a twine behind to create the closure. 
  8. Fussy cut some images from the paper collection and adhere it on the flap of the envelope.
  9. Randomly apply glossy accents on the bottom of the envelope and pour frosted powder on it. 
  10. Cut a sentiment and stick on the envelope to complete it.

Get creative with dress my craft scoreboard | Tutorial

Hello everyone,
Hope you are doing great.
This is Meher from Meher Creations back with another post on different ways you can use Dress my craft scoreboard. We are focusing on scoreboard and bone folders this month to show you different possibilities on how you can use them.
Well, In this post I will be sharing some creative ways in creating textures on cards and other projects.


1. Layered card with shaker window







2. Card with a bunch of grapes

How to create:
  • Create a card measuring 4*6 inches on a white cardstock.
  • Cut a piece of pattern paper measuring 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
  • Cut a piece of cardstock again measuring 3 1/4 by 5 1/4 inches. Score the whole cardstock at every 1/8 inch to give a nice texture.
  • Pick a yellow pattern paper and cut a window panel on it and adhere foam tape behind. 
  • Layer all the pieces together.
  • Apply some equal amount of glue at the center of the card and start arranging round pearls randomly to give a natural grapes look.
  • Pick some leaf chipzeb pieces and color them in green using Prima chalk edgers.
  • Stick them on top of the bunch and tie a bow using twine.
  • Add a sentiment and complete your card. 


3. Banner Card

How to create:
  • Create a base card measuring 5*4 inches.
  • Pick the cover of the charming baby girl paper pad and cut some colorful glossy pieces to create banner. 
  • Adhere a piece of twine on the card and allow it to dry. 
  • Stick foam tape behind all the tiny banner pieces and adhere it on to the card.
  • Add a sentiment or a stamped image to complete the card.


4. Pocket envelope

How to create:
  • Create a base card measuring 4*6 inches.
  • Score at 1/4 inch on both the sides
  • Cut a strip from one part of the card.
  • Score at 1.5 inch to fold the envelope.
  • Stick the 1/4 inch area on to the other side of the card. That makes a pocket envelope.
  • Cut pattern papers and adhere it on the envelope.
  • Pick two brads and fix it at the centre of the envelope and tie a twine to make the closure.
  • Pick some images from the motif sheet and embellish it using foam tape. Add a sentiment to complete the envelope and fill some tags in it.
