Hiya all, it’s Sarah here and I’ve created a Father’s Day card using the Wow Earthtone powders that I wanted to share with you all.
Here are brief instructions on how to make (I used a blank pre-folded Square Card with a linen effect but and blank white card would work well with these colours):
Stick 5mm double sided tape either side of the stamped squares and trim to size. Sprinkle with Wow Mint Embossing Powder and heat set with a heat gun.
I printed out ‘DAD’ in a bold font and cut around the letters, using a scalpel to cut out the middle parts of each letter. Then I stuck these letters to a square piece of card 6cm x 6cm using a temporary adhesive. This then became a stencil effect so I could use my ink pad to ink over the whole area and heat emboss using Wow Pepper Embossing Powder then carefully (using a scalpel), remove the stencil letters to reveal the card underneath. I used a pearl effect card so that the matt embossing powder really makes the letters stand out.
To add a little more sparkle, I added some fabulous spearmint green colour mix star sequins using glue dots. (They are from Josy Rose Sequin Collection).
If you have the patience for cutting out, here’s an option with an alternate sentiment:
If you right click on the below images you should be able to save them to your computer so that you can print them out to cut around the letters. If you print them onto thin card, the stencils are usually sturdy enough to use a few times.
Here’s a list of the Wow products that I used:
Pop over to the Wow Embossing Powder website for other fabulous colours from the Earthtone range… Honey is a lovely rich yellow which reminds me of all this fabulous weather that we have at the moment. I might have to use that colour in a project that I create today… Happy Embossing!
