Caroler's Collage Card
by Wendy Kennedy

Christmas Card

Materials:

  • Dark green & red cardstock
  • Gold Metallic Paper
  • Glossy paper
  • Gold ink pad (I used Galaxy Gold Brilliance)
  • Embossing ink pad
  • Gold embossing powder
  • Heat Tool
  • Adirondack Rainbow Ink Pad - Noel (must work on glossy paper)
  • Black ink pad (that works on glossy paper - I used Brilliance)
  • Brayer
  • Inkadinkado Stamp - Caroler's Collage
  • Inkadinkado Stamp - Small Snowflake
  • Inkadinkado Stamp - Large Snowflake
  • Scissors/Paper Trimmer

Instructions:

  1. Cut red cardstock for card - I used 6" x 10" and folded to 6" x 5" (make sure you have an envelope to fit the card size you are making if you`ll need an envelope!).

  2. Cut strip of green cardstock 6" x 1" and gold paper 6" x 1.5".

  3. Tear a piece of glossy paper 3.75" x 4.5".

  4. Roll brayer on rainbow ink pad & roll color onto glossy cardstock. Let sit until dry.

  5. Stamp Caroler's Collage on glossy cardstock with black ink. Let dry.

  6. Make sure you're using inks that will dry on glossy cardstock!

  7. Ink edges of glossy cardstock with green area of rainbow ink pad.

  8. Stamp large snowflakes in gold on red card front.

  9. Attach green, gold & glossy cardstock to card front.

  10. Stamp small snowflake on green cardstock to left of glossy picture with embossing ink.

  11. Emboss in gold.

Embossing Instructions:

  1. Ink stamp with embossing ink.

  2. Stamp image (unless you have a tinted embossing ink you won't be able to see it very well - will look wet).

  3. Sprinkle embossing powder over stamped image.

  4. Shake excess powder off card and back into embossing powder bottle.

  5. Heat with a heat gun until embossing powder melts. You should see a color change when it melts.

  6. Be careful not to heat too much or your paper will curl and burn.

  7. Don't waste time between steps. You have to put the embossing powder on before the embossing ink dries. Embossing inks are designed to stay wet longer but it's still a good idea to move quickly.
