Here is my card:

Card Front

Supplies you will need:  

  • Cardstock:  Whisper White, Black, Calypso Coral
  • VersaMark Ink pad
  • Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write marker
  • Black embossing powder
  • Embossing buddy
  • Heat gun
  • Stamp for sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes, image from Greeting Card Kids
  • Spider web embossing folder & Cuttlebug (or Big Shot, etc.)
  • Perfect Layers tool.
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Word Window Punch
  • Modern Label Punch

Assembling the card

  1. Cut Whisper White cardstock  5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and fold in half to form a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card.
  2. Cut Basic Black cardstock  5 3/8″  x 4 1/8″ and run through embossing machine using the spider web embossing folder.  Adhere to front of card.
  3. Cut a small piece of Whisper White cardstock that is larger than your image.  Rub this with the embossing buddy.
  4. Stamp the image onto the Whisper White cardstock with VersaMark ink then pour on some black embossing powder.  Tap the back of the paper to remove the excess powder.
  5. Heat emboss using your heat gun.  I used my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write marker to color the band on the little girl’s hat.
  6. Now trim down this piece of cardstock with the image on it to desired size and adhere to a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock
  7. Using your perfect layers tool, make a 1/16″ border around this.
  8. Adhere to front of card as shown using stampin dimensionals.
  9. Stamp sentiment on white cardstock, after using embossing buddy, with VersaMark then heat emboss with black embossing powder.
  10. Punch out using the Word Window punch.
  11. Punch out a Modern Label punch in Calypso Coral.  Adhere sentiment to this.
  12. Attach Left side of Modern Label punch with stampin’ dimensional.  On the right side, I just used some tape runner.

That’s it.  I hope you have time to craft today.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
