Invertage cards...
...another "Buzz" word in the cardmaking arena.

Invertage cards are another idea on the card front...and there are so many "...ages" in the craft world that it is hard to  keep up with it all !!

 We have covered Decoupage and Pyramage so now lets see just what Invertage is and how we achieve the look for ourselves


It is is the process of making the cards have Depth instead of the Height that is achieved with the other two styles.

In Pyramage cards we saw that the Spellbinders dies gave us the layers to get the height we needed.

And I used an image that had been printed out identically, seven times.

Keep one full image as the base layer.

This picture shows you what you would have left over after cutting six of the images into layers.

So as good frugal crafters ... instead of throwing them away ... put them to good use and make another card!


With these layers that are left over and starting with the smallest aperture, add some silicone, foam pads or Pinflair Glue Gel to each and layer them up so that you obtain the depth.

Match up all the patterns in the design so that it follows one through the card

Then as you look at the image it goes inwards ... Invertage!! Yes!

It can give a very pleasing effect if done neatly and you won't have wasted anything form your printed sheets 

So from one group of seven matching images we have got two cards that can be decorated however you wish.

That's got to be a good use of paper and printing ink and saving you money in the process.

I am always in favour of saving money ... to spend on other crafting goodies !!

All these different ideas and techniques will help to stop you being bored by making the same designed card over and over again.

There are many styles that you can try and most of them are easy to re - create. Then dress them up in your best way and you will have a new style to add to you list.

Take a look through the Projects section in the NavBar to your left and there is sure to be something to interest you. And don't forget that there are hundreds of Video Tutorials for you to view.
