Making Your Own Vine Paper Cards
Many beautiful decorations may be created with vine paper which can be purchased from the digitalpapershop.com website. You can go for the traditional green vine paper to keep the effect as real as possible or go crazy with it and have different coloured vine paper. As well as different colours, you can also have different textured vine paper such as a shiny paper, foil paper or matte paper. We are going to show you how to create this beautiful and unique Mother’s Day card, although you can also use the same design for birthday and even wedding cards.
First of all you need to download and print the vine paper you have chosen for your greeting card. You can then use Photoshop and the Marquee tool to cute a square of the vine paper and add it to the layer the white paper is on. Don’t cover all the white paper with the vine paper pattern, just one side of it. Make sure to blend the pattern out so it doesn’t just abruptly end half way across the card.
You can then use the text tool to add the wording of your choosing in the same colour as the vine paper. If you want, you can add 3D butterflies to your greeting card by downloading a butterfly clipart, printing it, cutting it out and adding it to card and lifting the wings up. You can use your glue gun to glue these to the card wherever you want them.
