Designer Tip: I love the technique of lightly dabbing one of the sides of the embossing folder with a VersaMark™ ink pad before rolling through—pour on the embossing powder after it comes out and heat emboss for a fantastic look. Use the opposite side of the inside of the folder for a completely different result!
- Start with a piece of blue cardstock the size of the embossing folder. Open the embossing folder and tap the side with the recessed flourishes (the flourishes are not raised) with a VersaMark™ ink pad. Insert the cardstock into the folder, close it, and roll through the Epic 6 machine in between the embossing platform and flexible cutting mat. Remove the cardstock—the background should be slightly darker because of the VersaMark™. Pour on the silver glitter embossing powder, shake off excess, and emboss with a heat tool.
- Trim the piece along the blue raised outer lines. With the fold on the left, glue the piece to the card vertically, flush with the fold. Trim off all excess cardstock. Open the card face down on a cutting mat and cut out the inner square. Tie a small knot of white metallic ribbon and Zot™ to the base of the window as shown.
- For the inside: Cover the inside with the same blue cardstock, trimming to fit. Add a strip of white ribbon across the top using Zips™ adhesive lines, 1” from the top. Adhere a small white bow in the center using Zots™ adhesive dots.
- Close the card and stamp “May your heart and soul” with VersaMark™ in the center of the window. Emboss with silver glitter embossing powder. Open the card and stamp “Find peace and comfort” with VersaMark™ at the bottom, about 3/8” from the bottom of the card. Emboss with silver glitter embossing powder.
