Making a Glossy Card

Hi everyone!

Here's a nice and fun technique you can make using your stamping supplies. To make this project, you will need:

  • Cardstock in black, white, orange, and green
  • Adhesives & dimensionals
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Versamark
  • Clear Embossing Powder
  • Heat Gun
  • Embellishments
Now let's start:

1.) First off you will need to download this pattern-->Halloween Fun<--. Cut out all pieces according to the instructions given EXCEPT FOR THE PUMPKIN.

2.) For the pumpkin I grabbed a pencil and drew the shape in one side of the orange cardstock and then folded the orange cardstock in half and cut out my shape, leaving the left side untouched. See the pic!

You should now have this:

3.) Now for the fun part :) Grab the black kitty shape and with the Versamark damp the entire shape (top only).

4.) Spread clear embossing powder on top, making sure it covers the shape entirely.

5.) With the heat gun melt the embossing powder on the shape.

Repeat steps #3, #4 & #5 for the remaining black pieces.

Nice technique, ha? And it looks gorgeous!

6.) While your shapes are cooling down, grab the pumpkin and decorate it. I chalked and stitched the edges. I also added a Prima leaf on top of it, but of course you can add whatever you like :)

7.) Adhere dimensionals on the back of your pumpkin and center it on top of the black cat shape.

8.) Now finish your card by adding eyes and nose to the cat and its paws. I used my circle punches (small & 1/4 size punches) to create the eyes... even better, you can add those wiggly eyes for a funner look.

And we are done! Here's how it should look on the inside:
