Hybrid Cards -tips and tricks for beginners

Creating cards with hybrid kits is fantastic. You can just resize the papers you have and match the pattern to the smaller format.

Since everything comes out flat from the printer, the key is to add texture and layers to make the cards special.

Some items you might want to consider are
  • border punches
  • glossy accents
  • 3d glue dots
  • pearls
  • bling
  • diamond dust
Here I printed out the pretty button, added glossy accent in the middle and added lots of pearls around it. Use 3d glue dots to raise it again and the effect is pretty cool

When you print out flowers, just print out several flowers, cut them, layer them, attach a brad in the middle and then bend those petals!




And here is my card using the super sweet Forest Love collection by snips and snails. You can get it here. I printed the heart pattern once big and once small. I cut the heart out, added lots of diamond dust and raised it on 3d dots.

Thanks a lot for stopping by and leaving me a comment!
All the best,
Elisabeth
