Card Making Techniques Vol 15 brings us to 79 craft techniques for your cardmaking! If you love to step up your cards try out a new technique to add dimension and interest to your cardmaking projects.
I am going to dive right in and explain what each of these fun techniques can do to add more to your cardmaking library! Speaking of a library I introduced an idea with Volume 1 to store all of your cardmaking techniques in an Album that you can find on my website or you can use a three-ring-binder. We later added Fun Folds to that too. You can get the FREE download PDFs with a $50 or more order or you can purchase them in my Tutorial Store.

Watch this video to learn these fun techniques
Technique #1 Letterpress
I share on the video the difference between Letterpress using ink on the Artistic Stencils and not so that you can see the value of learning this technique!
Letterpress is a printing technique that uses pressure to create raised images on paper. You can use letterpress stamps to create custom designs, or you can find pre-made letterpress folders that you can use with your embossing machine. But today we will be using a Stencil for our Letterpress Technique!
Technique #2 Paper Kintsugi
Paper kintsugi is a variation of the traditional Japanese art of kintsugi, which is the repair of broken pottery with gold. In paper kintsugi, the broken pieces of paper are repaired with gold or silver leaf. This creates a beautiful and unique piece of art that celebrates the imperfections of the paper.
TECHNIQUE # 3 debossed Inky Resist
Debossed inky resist is a technique that creates a sunken image on your card. To do this, you will need to use an embossing folder and Versamark Ink.
TECHNIQUE #4 Embossing with Stencils
Embossing with stencils is a great way to create simple but elegant designs. Simply choose a stencil that you like, and then use this technique to fill in the design.
With a little practice, you will be able to create beautiful and unique cards using these techniques.
