10 Card Ideas with Handmade Embellishments

I love to make embellishments using paper, sequins, embossing powder, glitter, dies, and ribbon.  Really I just love to make embellishments!!  I think it adds a little something extra special to each of my cards that are not only hand made, but also have a little extra handmade love on them!  So here are 10 cards where I hand made some sort of embellishment on it.  Some are simple and some complex a little bit of something for everyone!!



Here is a video of each card step by step so you can make some of these fun embellishments and cards too!!



On this card the embellishment is part of the background paper, it is the glitter flower.  I used a stencil and green glitter paste to create the flower, drew in the stem, and added in Nuvo Drops for the center.


On card 2 I made the flower at the top corner.  You take layers of punched or die cut flower shapes from paper squish them up and layer them to make a really fun flower!!  Add a little of the glitter paste and it is super sparkly!  Check out the video for full details on how to make this flower.


Here is card 3 the embellishment is the paper that is embossed with a flower stamp and gold embossing power.  Some times the simplest things make the biggest statement!


On card 4 the embellishment is the tag that is layered up with a stamp, sequins, and a little jute bow!



Here is card 5 with an elegant gold flower that is made from a couple of flower punches, leaf sequins, and round sequins for the center.



For this card I used a toucan die and colored the beak and backed the die with white paper with the die cut being in black.  It is just too cool!!


On card 7 I made a simple 2 layered gold flower with a sequin center, simple but elegant!


On this card I used a simple punched out butterfly from gold cardstock.  I love easy embellishments!!



On card 9 the embellishment is the strips of paper, adding to it are the wooden pre-made flowers and sequins make this card pop!


The last card I made a flower out of gold ribbon.  It is fun to make and a great way to use up that stash of ribbon!!



What types of embellishments do you like to make?



I used the May Love from Lizi kit to make all the fun cards.  Almost all the supplies are in the kit except for the adhesive, ink, stamp blocks, and a couple sheets of white cardstock.  Here is the unboxing video to show all the supplies in this fun kit!



I also have a coupon code for Supertite glue, it is the liquid glue I used to hold all the embellishments together and onto the cards and it is a wonderful glue that is so much cheaper than other glues out on the market, plus it has less chemicals!!

Coupon for 10% off your Supertite order of $5 or more
