Designer’s Tip: Stamp and emboss the cute little house focal image in amber rose embossing glitter, then use the VersaMark watermark pen to fill in some of the spaces and emboss them with the metallic copper sparkle embossing glitter for contrasting accents.

Instructions:

  1. Place your card with the fold at the left. Cover the card with Emma’s Garden brown/pink/aqua floral paper. Cut a 5”x1/2” pink dots paper and glue it centered on a 5”x1” tan/ivory dots paper. Glue across the card, 3/4" from the bottom.
  2. Use the medium sized rectangle frame cutting die and your die cutting machine to cut 1 Emma’s Garden aqua textured frame and 1 tan/ivory dots rectangle center. Use the large sized rectangle frame cutting die to cut a pink dots rectangle center. Glue the tan/ivory rectangle centered on the pink dots rectangle. Glue the aqua frame around the edges of the tan/ivory rectangle.
  3. Stamp the small house image centered on the tan/ivory dots rectangle with VersaMark™. Stamp a potted flower image to the right of the house. Sprinkle the images with Amber Rose embossing glitter. Tap off the excess and pour back into the container. Emboss with the heat gun. Take the brush tip of the Watermark pen and fill in the window frames and chimney on the house. Fill in the pot. Stamp a cat on the left side of the house with VersaMark™. Sprinkle the stamped and filled in areas with metallic copper sparkle embossing glitter and tap off the excess. Emboss with the heat gun. Mat on brown textured paper with 1/16” borders.

Foam tape centered on the tan/ivory/pink strips on the card. Stamp the heart image twice on tan/ivory dots paper and emboss them copper. Trim around each heart leaving a thin border.

  6. Die cut a small lacy frame from Emma’s Garden pink dots paper. Stamp Welcome HOME on Emma’s Garden tan/ivory dots paper with VersaMark™ and emboss it copper. Stamp a heart image to the right of the words and emboss it copper. Glue the small lacy pink frame on the tan/ivory paper with the words centered inside. Trim the edges leaving a thin border.
