Collage Card


Papercrafting/ paper artistry is a part of who I am. A LONG time ago, I was the 12 year old girl with the pretty stationary, the fountain pens, the sealing wax kit, and a passion for penpals and diaries.  So it's no surprise that I love calligraphy, card making, journaling, and scrapbooking.

I made this particular collage card several years ago, and it's one of my favorites because it has a photo of my grandmother (a very interesting lady who usually wore a hat and served ice cream in slices! She played piano at a silent movie theater and met my grandfather there. )

The card was simple to make, actually. The multicolored background on the bigger torn piece was made with decorative chalks applied with cotton balls. I simply rubbed the chalk onto the background. I tore mulberry paper into pieces, attached those,  and added a dried flower, a pretty stamp, gold photo corners, and a tiny doily.

You can't really make a mistake on a collage card, so have fun with it!  I'm always looking for new ideas, so I'd love to know your favorite sites for inspiration!

  2. I'd really love to have the time to sit down and be creative. I guess it will have to wait until the kids are older. Cute ideas! I'd love to practice calligraphy.
