Holiday Quickies: Elegant Last Minute Card
Merry Christmas to All
Finished Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
This is my first ten minute card. Some cards can take me all day, some can be done in a few minutes.
Santa Stamp (Inkadinkado)
Cream Card Stock (Paper Temptress)
Red & Green Card Stock (Paper Temptress)
Distress Ink Victorian Velvet and Fired Brick (Ranger)
Black embossing powder (Personal Stamp Exchange)
Stardust Stickles (Ranger)
Embossing folder - Funky Poinsettia (Craft Concepts)
Bling on a roll (Recollections)
Tim Holtz Ink applicator (Ranger)
Die cut and embossing machine (Cuttlebug)
- Using cream card stock, I applied distress ink Victorian Velvet with ink applicator over the card stock, then I applied the Fired Brick on top of Victorian Velvet. After the paper dried, I rubbed the embossing buddy over the card stock to prevent embossing powder to stick to previously inked portions, and stamped the Inkadinkadoo stamp in Versamark. I sprinkled black embossing powder over the image, and set with the heat gun. When the paper was cool, I trimmed the image and layered with red and green card stock.
- The next step is to take your base card and put the embossing folder around the front page of the card, then put it through your dye cut machine. The I took the Victorian Velvet Distress ink and highlighted the embossed portions of the base card. The final touches are to add the bling on a roll tape across the bottom, and little dabs of stickles in the center of the Poinsettias.
I hope you enjoyed this fun, quick card.
