Hi, friends! Like to add texture to your handmade cards? Teri here with an easy way to create cards with the flock like these Flocked Cards!
All you need to make them are the leftover negative pieces from 3D Foam Shapes, some flock, patterned papers, and a few basic craft supplies. So keep those leftover sheets!
Making Flocked Card Panels
Make the background by applying several strips of patterned paper onto a larger rectangle of patterned paper (the base). Then place the negative sheet from a 3D Foam Shapes on top. I’m using a leftover panel from the 3D Foam Circles but there are lots of other shapes that will work!
Use your scissors to trim any excess patterned paper off the panel. Then mount the foam panel to a card.
Remove the liner paper and apply flock to the panel.
Designer’s Tip: use the slick side of the liner paper to burnish the flock to the foam. Another option that works too is wax paper!
Stamp a sentiment on a strip of cardstock and affixing it to the card. Add a few sequins or gems for a hint of bling to complete the card! I think the end result is pretty fun! What do you think?
Other 3D Shapes For Flocked Cards
You are not limited to creating cards with the negatives from 3D Foam Circles. There are many other 3D Foam Creative Shapes with interesting designs.
I created a flocked background for this card with the negative from the 3D Foam Hearts!
What about these two birthday cards? They came together quick and easy with the negative panels from the 3D Foam Stars!
Just change them up by arranging the patterned papers and sequins differently for each one!
I hope you are inspired to make a few easy flocked cards of your own! If flock isn’t your thing, consider using glitter instead. Want to try something really out of the box? Try decorating your negative panels with sand!
Happy card making!
