Hi everyone, Yvonne here and today I would like to show you how to make a gorgeous vintage background for your card using tissue paper. My secret ingredient for adhering is Dual Tip Glue Pen! Shall we make this card together?
Tissue Paper Card Background Steps
I created this card using tissue paper to design your own patterned paper.
Start with a rectangular white card panel and distress it by using brown ink and an ink blending tool.
Tear some decorated tissue paper into pieces. Use the broad tip of the Dual Tip Glue Pen to apply glue to the back of the tissue paper.
Adhere the pieces to the card panel. No need to perfectly adhere them, wrinkles in the tissue paper are okay!
Use the pointed tip of the Dual Tip Glue Pen to place a small drop on your fingertip and rub over the loose ends of the tissue paper to adhere to the card panel.
Cut excess tissue paper sticking out with scissors. If the tissue paper is still moist, let dry. Tip: you can use a heat gun to speed up the drying.
Tissue Card Panel Details
To give more depth to the tissue paper card panel, use a stencil and texture paste. After applying texture paste over the stencil, add some sparkle with dry glitter while wet. Tap off any excess glitter for a sparkly effect!
Then dry thoroughly or use a heat gun to hurry the drying process.
The Card Base
Adding the Sentiment
Stamp a sentiment onto black cardstock using watermark ink. Sprinkle white embossing powder over it and melt with a heat gun. Next, trim to banner shape and adhere to the card panel using 3D Foam Squares Black Mix.
And voila…You’re the Best Tissue Paper Card is ready. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
Wishing you happy crafting!
