Two Serviette Cards...

Hi there....on a wild windy and cold Saturday here in Auckland.   A good day to be inside crafting.  Not that we can go anywhere!!!!  Still in Level 3 lockdown until the area makes 90% double vaccination.  Then things can open up a bit more.  Still a way to go till Auckland reaches the 90% so a few more weeks of being house bound... 

Anyhoo.... today I am sharing some cards I made last week.  I watched a video on an older technique using serviettes - (aka paper napkins)  I have a few packs still around in my craft room so pulled them out and had a play.

First up is a Butterfly card. 

This one is a slightly bigger than normal card being 4" x 6".  I'm not sure where I got this pack of cream prescored bases but this one was a grea size to use with this serviette.   I used a Glue Stick to add the serviette to a piece of cream card   I used some Copic markers to colour the butterfly and added a little Altenew label stamp.  

Second card is a Christmas card.

This serviette is gorgeous with it's gold colouring.  I added it to some white card and used a die to cut the panel and it's gold layer.  You can't really see it on the photo but there is lots of Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the ornaments.  I heat embossed the sentiment with clear ink after stamping it with Altenew Obsidian ink.  A few gold baubles finshed this one.  

These cards are so quick and easy to make. And as most of my packs of serviettes were around $2.50 a pack, and one serviette gets up to 4 cards,  these are very economic to make.

Beautiful cards Dawn - I love using serviettes, and have a fair stash of them tucked away :) - I have been known to bring home a carefully 'preserved' serviette from a meal, and make a thank you card from it for the hostess.
Stay safe

Lovely cards, Dawn! I've never tried this technique as it looks fiddly, but your results are great, Jo x
