Hybrid Card Tutorial

If you downloaded my free printable card file earlier today this is the tutorial post showing you how to put it together. If you have not downloaded it yet then what are you waiting for?

Go and grab it now, print it off and let it dry while you read how to assemble it. Only available till the 5th

Cut it all out.

If you are just using the already completed card adhere that to a card stock base and you are right to go. If making the hybrid card then read on.

Now use something to rough up the edges. Here I have a Making Memories distressing tool. This is neat but I had it a long time before I discovered what it was to be used for….do you have tools like that? πŸ™‚

Cool huh. Use a bit of scrap paper to catch the tiny shards if you want to clean up easily. I have been know to use sandpaper, nail files and the odd brick or two to achieve this same effect.

Now distress the edges of your star even more if you like that look. You could do all the edges but this time just the star for the star treatment. Used a blue and rusty looking brown from Versa Colour with a finger dauber for this project. You could use a cotton bud or even paper towel over the end of your finger to get a similar finish.

Then used a brown ink to stamp the word celebrate on some twill. You don’t have to do this if you don’t want – there is a paper ribbon on the printable.

Adhere all the layers as pictured on a dark blue cardstock base (or your choice) using some 3d mounting tape to raise the star levels up. Then either adhere your paper ribbon over the top or hot glue a real one if you go that route.

There you have it. A nice easy hybrid card to make someones day.

And just because I like making your day – check back tomorrow to see what the sneak peak is. πŸ™‚
