If you would love to give mixed media a try, start with a handmade card or two, where the surface is just the right size to give some mixed media techniques a try. The combination of techniques is what you use to achieve the final look you are going for. Choosing a simple color story like sunny yellow and white is a great way to start. Choose flowers, fabric, cords, papers, feathers, buttons and other embellishments in a single color palette.
Canvas Corp Printed Papers are printed on 80# paper stock, helping them to stand up to many mixed media techniques and embellishments. Available in 12×12, these papers can easily but turned into cards of any size or shape and work well in all styles of die cut machines and punches.
Choose from a variety of our yellow and white or yellow and ivory papers to achieve this look. The variety of basic prints is a perfect backdrop for your mixed media projects, wedding invites, neutral baby crafts, spring crafts and so much more.
Choose a single piece to begin your focal point such as this die cut scroll to build your design. Add a balance of flowers, ribbons, lace, strings, beads, pearls, etc.
Our Yellow & White Big Stripes Paper offers a strong base for this companion card. Mist, stamp and paint before adding your embellishments. The accent of the laser cut wooden frame is a great focal point to support the layers of flowers, doilies, loose string, ribbon and stamped sentiment.
Add your papers to a blank card to create an even heavier duty card that will stand up to all you can come up with.
