Cardmaking and collage go together like birthdays and cake! They’re both accessible crafts that allow great freedom of expression and provide a clever way to use those inevitable studio scraps and ephemera. That’s why Collage Cards is the perfect debut book in this brand-new beginner-friendly series on creative card crafting. It offers approximately 50 inspirational projects, with seven themed chapters that cover everything from focal points and photographs to embellishments, backgrounds, and inside treatments. Incorporate used dress patterns, with its tea-colored tissue paper and interesting arcs and arrows. Evoke Paris with the lush flowers on French perfume labels. Go charmingly vintage, with old-fashioned children’s art. Tips, insights, and card variations show how even the simplest alterations can transform a layout.
