I just posted our review of Making Your Own Greeting Cards & Gift Wrap and decided to give one of their projects a try. I chose to give their Pink Gingham greeting card my own spin with products on hand. You can do the same. Just take a look at your scrapbook stock and pick a few coordinating pieces that appeal to you. Add a rubber stamp and some embossing powder and you will have created your own unique card.
- Clear embossing ink
- Dimensional fabric ink
- Coordinating patterned and solid color scrapbook papers and/or card stock
- White paper or card stock
- Tape Runner and/or spray adhesive
- Embossing Heat Tool
Using a pre-cut white greeting card, I cut my scrapbook card stock to fit the front of the card.
Using tape runner, attach the card stock to the card.
Cut a 2.5″ square piece of white card stock.
Using clear embossing ink, stamp the square with the flower of your choice.
Place square in Snappy Tray. Quickly pour embossing power over stamped ink, then shake card over Snappy Tray to remove excess powder.
Carefully use embossing heat tool to adhere embossing powder to square.
Attach square to card front with tape runner.
Cut four 3″ narrow strips of solid card stock.
Attach strips around flower square overlapping at the ends.
Apply four drops of dimensional paint where strips meet to mimic brads.
(I got a little carried away and added more drops on card. Oops!)
