Get Acquainted All Occasion Card

col·lage ~ a tech­nique of com­pos­ing a work of art by past­ing on a sin­gle sur­face var­i­ous mate­ri­als not nor­mal­ly asso­ci­at­ed with one anoth­er, as news­pa­per clip­pings, parts of pho­tographs, the­ater tick­ets, and frag­ments of an enve­lope.

One of the rea­sons I love col­lage so much is I can assem­ble all the ran­dom vin­tage finds I dis­cov­er in flea mar­kets, thrift stores and antique shops to cre­ate one of a kind items like this card. A col­lage can be cre­at­ed as a one dimen­sion­al piece using all types of ephemera or three dimen­sion­al piece using found objects like but­tons, milk caps, keys, millinery stems, etc..

This card is cre­at­ed using paper items, but­tons, seam bind­ing, twine and a milk cap that are all found in my Delight In The Art of Col­lage Kit 1 ~ Anti­quat­ed.

I accent­ed the but­ton cen­ters by attach­ing dif­fer­ent sized rhine­stones with a clear dry­ing adhe­sive. Then decid­ed to accent the flow­ers on the book page with a lit­tle Dia­mond Stick­les. This added just the right amount of sparkle to the card.  The but­ter­flies are punched from a Martha Stew­art but­ter­fly punch. Then to add a lit­tle pat­tern to the book page I decid­ed to trim the edges using zig zag scis­sors.
