If you're planning to make a card for someone special, why not try using the technique of collage. Not only does collage (from the French verb 'coller' = to stick) enable you to use up lots of oddments, it also lets your imagination run wild so that you can create a design that is both highly original and stylish. And when you've made your first card this way, you'll be sure to want to make many more for family and friends!

Approximate Time: 30 minutes per card plus drying time




  1. Draw a rectangle from cardstock and lightly score it in half. Make sure your card will fit easily into the envelope.

  2. Apply pigment ink to cover the outside of the card and let dry thoroughly. Stamp the inked surface using designs of your choice. Repeat this step for your envelope.

  3. Sketch out a shape you wish to collage - it could be anything, a cat, bird, leaf, or a hat. For example, I drew the silhouette of an evening dress. Cut out the shape from thick paper or cardstock.

  4. Glue paper strips, felt, and other materials to cover the surface of your shape.

  5. To finish, secure your collaged design to the front of the card with foam pads. You can even apply a collage to decorate your envelope, too.
