Embellishments for card making, scrapbooking and crafts
Perhaps one of the most enjoyable parts of crafting is the embellishment process. It is here that crafters can make each craft project their own.
Below is a list of embellishment ideas:
Buttons are always a great staple; thread them with ribbon for extra embellishment effect.
Faux gems are a good way to add glamour to your card making. Self adhesive faux gems are easy to use and very versatile.
Sequins are a fun way to add extra embellishment. You could also stitch them together for a chain effect.
Ribbons are very versatile as card making embellishments. Wrap a ribbon around the spine of your card and tie in a bow at the front. You can also create small bows and place at an angle on your card for a jaunty effect.
Beads can be used as card embellishments. If you take a ribbon, use on the spine of a card as detailed above and thread on some beads, you can create a totally different look for your card.
Brads are another good way to add decorative embellishments to card making and scrapbooking projects. They can be obtained from stationers in a range of colours.
Glitter and embossing powder are good for adding a touch of glamour to your crafting. The raised embossing by using a heat gun is particularly attractive when used with rubber stamps or an embossing pen.
Polymer clay is a great way to get creative. Consider making petals out of clay and form your own unique flower shape to embellish your cards.
Fabric can be used to great effect for embellishments. Try using pinking shears to give an attractive edging effect.
Peel Offs are a great way to add quick embellishment details when you are in a hurry.
