In today's card making tutorial I will show you how to make a Textured Metallic Wedding Card using VersaMark, Delicata, and Embossing Powders. This is a stunning card to make for a bride and groom as they celebrate their wedding day. I am sure my nephew and his bride will enjoy their card!
Time: 2 hours
This technique involves inking the FLAT side of an embossing folder for either 2-D or 3-D folder. This folder is 3-D with both indentations and slight protrusions. Ink the folder well using a brayer and VersaMark ink. Place white cardstock in folder and pressure emboss.
Sprinkle liberally with Black Embossing powder and heat the card from below with a heat embossing gun. Allow cardstock to cool.
Lightly rub Delicata Golden Glitz over the surface of the cardstock. The high areas will pick up the ink. This creates a great three dimension look of black, white, and gold. Trim the finished panel to 4” x 5 ½”.
Stamp "Mr." & "Mrs." in Delicata Golden Glitz and heat emboss with Iridescent Embossing Powder. Fussy cut the banners with scissors.
Die cut four "Congratulations" die cuts from white cardstock with Spellbinders Phrase Set One. Use an ink dauber to color the top die cut then heat emboss with Iridescent Embossing Powder. Use very small dots of OnPoint glue around the letters of the die cut to glue the layers together.
Trim a strip of black cardstock to 7/8" x 4". Stamp with a background stars stamp in Delicata Silvery Shimmer and heat emboss with Silver Embossing Powder. Once cool add shine with Sheer Shimmer Stix in Sparkle.
Trim cardstock to 4 1/2" x 11" and fold in half for a top fold card. Using and ink dauber add Delicata Golden Glitz ink around the outer 1/4" of the card base.
Stamp the sentiment inside the card with Delicata Black Shimmer and heat emboss with Iridescent Embossing Powder.
Adhere card layers together with TearIt Tape, and adhere die cut with OnPoint Glue. The small little dot (tittle) of the letter "i" is replaced with a small gold adhesive rhinestone. The original tittle was too small to layer together.
