Designer Tips

  • A grid layout makes a great design to unify many different elements.
  • Text is a big trend. Use the alphabet to create a fun sentiment.
  • Mix up different textures for a card that you'll want to touch as well as look at.
  • When using adhesive chipboard as a mask, remove some of its tackiness by sticking it to a piece of fabric several times.
