DIY Mini Card with a Metal Embellishment

The DIY Mini Card with a Metal Embellishment tutorial will teach you how to make a card with a front featuring mixed media art. This eye-catching card may be small, but it is picturesque and stylish. This mini card has a thatched-looking background, a twine bow, a die cut with a map pattern, and a metal embellishment centered on the die cut. A lot is happening in this card, but it will only take you an hour to assemble. Card making has never been so easy!

DIY Mini Card with a Metal Embellishment


Materials from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™ :

  • 3D Foam Squares

  • An Adhesive Sheet

Other Materials:

  • Twine
  • Spellbinders® Labels: "Twenty Four" Die Cut Template

  1. Trim a piece of natural hessian to mat onto a piece of cardstock using your E-Z Runner®.

    Step 1
  2.  Using Spellbinders'® "Twenty Four" die template, cut a piece of chipboard and some pretty paper.

    Step 2
  3.  Using an Adhesive Sheet, stick the die cut straight onto the chipboard.

    Step 3
  4.  Use the E-Z Runner® again to adhere the chipboard to the card. Wrap a little twine around the top to add to the natural look.

    Step 4
