Simple Embossed Card Tutorial

 Here is a very simple card which is made using three color embossing powders, one background stamp and a sentiment stamp. Distress ink is also used to color the sentiment strip.

Here are the steps to create this type card:

1. Create a base card with white color, for this card I used the dimension, 6" x 4.5"
2. Cut 6 square blocks of 1.5" each.
3. Choose your favorite background stamp, use Versamark Watermark inkpad or any other pigment inkpad to stamp on the squares.
4. Spread the Embossing Powder on the squares, use same color for 2 squares.
5. Using Double sided Foam tape, fix all the squares on the card creating a background.
6. Add a sentiment over the squares.
7. To give some extra look on the sentiment, use distress inkpad to color the edges.

The best thing for this card is that you can use any color combination of embossing powders you have, you can use any stamp and even any sentiment.

In this card I used: Hero Arts Flower Burst Pattern Background Stamp, Rich Red Embossing Powder, Blue Glass Embossing Powder, Gold Pearl Embossing Powder, Distress Inkpad - Worn Lipstick, Fiskars 4x8 Stamp Happy Birthday, and instead of Versamark Watermark inkpad I used Ranger Perfect medium inkpad (it is lot better than versamark and can also be used with pigment powders).

I will soon post another variation of this card as I am planning to make it today, it will be on dark color background without use of embossing powder. Lets see how it comes out.
