Prouda You Gold Embossed Card
- Skill Level:
Step 1: Trim a panel of white cardstock to 4.25 inches wide by 5.5 inches tall.
Step 2: Place in MISTI stamping tool (or mount on acrylic block) and pick up with the door of the MISTI.
Step 3: Prep cardstock with antistatic powder tool.
Step 4: Ink stamp with clear embossing ink and stamp onto cardstock.
Step 5: Turn cardstock 180 degrees and repeat so you have floral images on opposing corners.
Step 6: Add gold embossing powder.
Step 7: Return to the MISTI (or use an acrylic block) and stamp “prouda you” in the center using clear embossing ink.
Step 8: Add more gold powder to the stamped area. Use a dry brush to brush away any extra embossing powder that sticks to places you don’t want it.
Step 9: Using a heat tool, melt the powder until smooth and shiny.
Step 10: Take your pink stamping ink and a small brush (a cotton swab will work, too!) and swirl the brush into the ink, then gently blend over both blooms, making it darker in the center and softening on the edges.
Step 11: Repeat with green ink for all the leaves.
Step 12: Trim 1/8th of an inch off all four sides so panel measures 4 x 5.25 inches.
Step 13: Put foam tape or foam squares on the back of the panel.
Step 14: Prep a US A2 card base in a coordinating pink cardstock. Cut an 8.5 x 11 sheet into two pieces that are 4.25 inches wide x 11 inches tall, then core at 5.5 inches to create a top-folding card base.
Step 15: Mount panel onto card base.
Step 16: Embellish with gold sequins as desired.
