Golden Celebrate

September 9, 2016

One of my co- workers needed a card for a seventieth anniversary. I had a lot of fun creating this card for her.



Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started by die cutting the word celebrate seven times from water color paper. I coated one die cut in Versa Mark ink and covered it with gold embossing powder. After heat setting the embossing power, I allowed it to cool while I worked on the rest of the card.

I glued the rest of the die cuts to the front of the card base. I was having trouble keeping the glue on the very delicate die cuts; I will have to try something different next time. I glued the gold die cut right on top of one of the white die cuts.

Then I smooshed some Versa Mark ink on the right edge of the card front. I added some more gold embossing powder. To soften the edge of the embossing powder, I used a dry paint brush to brush some of the embossing powder off of the edge. Lastly, I heat set that embossing powder and the card was done.

Dies Used: Essentials by Ellen’s Zipper Panel Die set

Ink: Versa Mark


Hope you enjoyed the card
