Hey Crafty Friends! I am so happy to be posting a new card using the Paper Kintsugi technique! This one was super easy, even if it looks like it took a minute to make.
Here’s the long and short of how to make this card. Find a DSP (designer series paper) you like a lot and rip it up! I know, it sounds awful, but it’s actually one of the best ways I’ve ever used my DSP. I picked Fresh as a Daisy for mine. The next step is to use your VersaMark™ pad on the edges of the torn parts and emboss them with whichever color embossing powder you’d like to shine and heat emboss all the edges. Finally, use your Seal to tape it all back together on your card base. Boom! A masterpiece is born!
I’d never heard of the Paper Kintsugi technique before, but I think I’m in love. This can take even the simplest papers and turn them into a card front you’d want displayed on every table or mantel in your home!
I’ll list all the items I used in my card in case your wanting to CASE it for your first attempt. I promise, it was super easy and loads of fun!
(Hint – you might want to emboss it twice so it shows up better in photos. In person, the embossing is clear as day, but the image doesn’t show it as clearly)
I hope you enjoyed this card and learned something new!
Until next time
Stay Crafty, Friends!
