World Card Making Day 2015 – Tips, tricks and technique hour!


It's our 3T's hour! This hour we are excited to share some fun tips, tricks and techniques with you from three designers! It's all about the three's so sit back and enjoy!

Tutorial by Kimberly Crawford: 

Hello everyone and Happy World Card Making Day! Kimberly Crawford here today to share a great way to create a faux watercolor background. By using dye-based inks, water, and an acrylic block, you can create a beautiful background for your cards, or even a layout if you use a larger block. Let's get started! 

Faux watercolor background 1 Kimberly Crawford

1. Gather your dye-based inks, I like to use three colors, a misting bottle with water, an acrylic block, and watercolor paper. Oh, and keep a couple of paper towels handy as well.

2. Starting with your darkest ink, press the pad directly onto your acrylic block. Apply as much or as little ink as you desire.

3. Mist water over the ink. The more water you use, the more the color will spread. The color will also have less intensity with more water.

4. Press the acrylic block onto your watercolor paper. Slide it around, pick it up and move it, however you would like. After a little experimenting, you will quickly find out how the ink and water will move on the paper and be able to create the look you want.

5. I slid the block around on my watercolor paper to create a large splotch of color. Because of all the water on my block, I used my paper towel to dab off any excess ink. For more intense spots of color, you can leave those behind to dry. Feel free to speed the process up with your heat tool.

6. To add depth to my background, this time I did not mist as much water onto my inked acrylic block. You can see how much stronger the color appears. Continue to add layers of ink and color to your background, until you are loving the results!

Creating Holiday Tags by Stephanie Klauck:

Hello everyone! It's Stephanie here and I am thrilled to be on the SCT blog celebrating World Card Making Day with all of you! For my post today, I'm sharing some festive holiday tags to give you some ideas to get a head start on the busy holiday creative season. And I'm excited to be sharing some new (not even released!) products from My Favorite Things that will make creating your holiday tags fun and easy! The stamps and dies I'm using will officially be available on Tuesday October 6th at 10pm! 😉


Creating holiday tags can be as easy or as detailed as you'd like. I created a bunch of tags using only 3 colours of cardstock and 3 sheets of patterned paper. The fun thing about these tag dies is that you can layer the pieces to create dimensional tags or leave them flat for more simple tag designs.


I kept the basic design of the tags the same but I changed up the colours I used together and well as how I layered the papers and diecut snowflakes. I even went a little more detailed with one of them and created a round shaker tag. It is such a fun and unexpected way to make a tag really stand out on your holiday gifts.


I like to tie my tags onto gifts, so I added ribbon the tops of all of them. If you'd prefer to adhere your tags directly to your presents you can skip the ribbon and just put double sided adhesive on the back. Or you can add the ribbon for a decorative element and still adhere them with adhesive.


Handmade holiday tags are a great way to dress up your packages and make a great impression with the recipient. Handmade is so special and really shows your friends and family how much you care. And we have all of these supplies anyway… we might as well put them to good use! Plus, they are a lot of fun to make!

I hope you are all having an amazing WCMD! Thanks for stopping by!

Double Tri-Fold shutter card by Jen Walker (our very own Director of Customer Happiness!):

Happy World Card Making Day everyone! I hope you're having a fabulous day. Haven’t the projects all been amazing so far?!  For my card technique, I am going to show you how to create a double tri-fold shutter card. For this card, I created two tri-fold shutter cards and folded them in reverse to each other so that I could attach them in the center. Here is how to create the tri-fold shutter cards:

Step 1 – Cut a 12×12 piece of cardstock into two 6×12 pieces

Step 2 – Across the length of each piece, score the cardstock at 2”, 4”, 8” and 10”

Step 3 – On each piece of cardstock, cut from the 2” score line to the 10” score line at both 1.5” and 4.5”


Step 4 – Fold the cardstock at the 2” mark. On the top and bottom sections, the second score mark gets folded away from you, the third score marks get folded towards you and the fourth score mark gets folded away from you. For the middle section, fold the score marks in the opposite direction as the top and bottom pieces you just folded. 


Step 5 – Fold the second piece of cardstock in the same way. Flip that piece of cardstock over and line up beside the other cardstock which will now appear to be folded in the opposite directions. 


Step 6 – Adhere a 4×6 piece of scrap cardstock to the backside of the cardstock where the two pieces will be joined. Place your nice 4×6 decorative card on the front side of the card. Your two pieces of cardstock should now be connected to each other.

Step 7 – Place the card out flat so you can plan how you would like to decorate your card. Embellish each of the various panels with patterned paper, chipboard, stickers, etc. 


Step 8 – After you are done embellishing all the different sections, fold the panels one more time to re-establish the folds. 




And your completed card…enjoy!

    This is an amazing tutorial! I can hardly wait to get started. I have fallen in love with shaker anything, so the gift tag is a must. I really like the faux water effect with the stamping and will use this on a lot of things. The tri-fold card is great and am wondering if I can take it a little further and make a chipboard book with it! So many ideas, my brain is boiling over. Thanks for everything.

Thanks to all the designers for taking the time to share their projects and tutorials! Thanks to the sponsors for their awesome giveaways today also!

    Wow, so many things to absorb in this post! I am not great with watercolor, so faux watercolor techniques are always welcomed. I actually tried this technique once, but I misted too heavily and wasn’t happy with the result. I should give it another try…
    I made the tri-fold shutter card recently, but a DOUBLE tri-fold shutter card takes it to a whole other level! Wow!

  216. Alma Dirpaul October 5, 2015 at 9:42 pm
