Using Mixed Media Transfers for Card Making

Mixed media transfers are a great way to add beautiful hand-drawn look to your crafts. These Faber-Castell mixed media transfers can be used in variety of projects from artwork, to scrapbooking, to card making. Today I’m using these mixed media flower transfers to make note cards. I will also be using Faber-Castell Gelatos Double Scoop and Pitt pens (B) to color in my artwork.

First I cut watercolor paper in the size of A2 note cards (4.25 by 5.5 inches). Next I cut out elements from the transfers to use on each note card. I removed the paper liner and placed the cut image onto my paper. Using the provided wooden stick I rubbed the transfer onto the paper and gently removed the transfer cover.

Next I using the Gelatos I colored in the flowers on the note cards, and using the Pitt pens I colored in the foliage and added a few accent leaves.

These simple note cards now have a unique hand-drawn look with different textures from the Gelatos and Pitt pens and are perfect for gifting as a set or using to send a thoughtful handwritten note.
