Vintage collage cards

Hi Hermine here, this time I made a tutorial to make vintage collage cards.

step 1: take 2 A$ sized paper (not as thick as cardstock, more like printer paper), cut both up to A6, this way you have 8 pieces of paper. Colour 2 of them with Brusho, stamp some background stamps on one of them. Take 2 of them and wrinkle, flatten and use distress ink direct to paper, iron them flat and dry. Use 2 of them to stamp on it to achieve a black and white look. Use 1 to stamp with different colours distress and background stamps. Stamp 1 of them with the invoice and make stains with distress ink. I used several stamps plate 1455, Waybill/invoice backround 19416, Sheet music background 19557, Harlequin Diamond Background 18920 and  Washi Grid Background 19074. But any gorgeous background stamp will do the trick.

step 2: Tear different pieces of the papers and place on your cardstock, When you like the look you glue them and trim the excess at the edges. Put aside for a little while.

step 3: take a smaller piece of cardstock and stamp with Stazon Black the tricycle girl mailing letter 19558. Cut a piece of black cardstock a little bigger then the one with the image. And stamp on a piece of leftover the number from the December Daily plate 1430

step 4: Colour the image and background with Lyra crayons and a waterbrush. Glue it onto the piece of black paper. Punch a hole and fasten an eyelet. Tie a piece of ribbon.

step 5: Glue a piece of lace on the lefthand side of your background card and use some washi tape. Assemble the card by glueing a piece of black cardstock onto your double squared kraftpaper card, then glue on the background. Glue the focal image in an angle onto the background and finish if off by glueing the number 7.

And this is how it looks when finished.

As you can tell you can make more then one card out of you pieces of selfmade patterned paper. I ended up with 4 larger ones and one smaller one. Still had some leftover that I used on the cards.

Made the same way as above. Focal image  Pipe Man Riding Bicycle 19555 and Admit one ticket 19190

Made the same way as above. Focal image Lady in Steampunk car 18382 and Butterfly specimens 19415

Made the same way as above. Focal Image Tea Party 19114 and writing triangles 19571

Made the same way as above. Focal Image Bansky unhappy boy 19493 and the number 16 from the December Daily plate 1430

I used magical tape to glue all parts to the card.

Hope this series will give you lots of inspiration and have fun trying it out.

Warmly Hermine
