Free Card Making Tutorial–an Elegant and Versatile Design

Elegant and Versatile Card Design to Make A versatile card design is good to have as a part of your card staelegant versatile cardsh, What makes this design versatile is that it could be used for men or women for a variety of occasions: birthday, mother’s day, father’s day, or wedding.

Additionally, it is quick and easy to make due to material selection.  Impression Obsession Cover-a-Card Stamps makes this a quick to create. The slow drying time of Clearsnap’s Mix’d Media Inx  makes it easier to ink up a large stamp.  To create a more vintage feel to the card I chose not to apply an even coat of the silver ink to the flourishes stamp.
