DIY Embossed Card

Gold and coral seems to be my color scheme of choice right now (too bad I can’t use it in the baby room), but I decided to use those colors as I prepared to make a new set of notecards. I got started with crafts back in high school by making cards with my sister-in-law, but card-making has been put on the back burner the past couple of years as I’ve learned to sew, and digital design has taken over. When I do get a chance to sit down and make cards, I try to get an assembly line going and whip out as many as possible, which is exactly what I did with these.

Here’s what you need:

: : notecards : : I used | this | in papaya
: : a stamp : :
: : coordinating paper : : I used | this |
: : embossing stamp pad, powder, and heat setter (not shown) : :
: : paper punch : :
: : some kind of adhesive (not shown) : :
* You can also just use a normal stamp pad and skip the embossing step, but I liked the way the gold shimmer looked.

1

Use your paper punch to create a few circles from your decorative paper.

2

I like to use my Xyron sticker-maker so that all the edges stick, but you can just use a normal adhesive if you prefer.

3

Lay out your circles on your card any way you’d like.

4

Stamp with your embossing stamp pad.

5

Cover in embossing powder, then set it with heat.

6

Done!

You can also punch the edges for a fun, decorative addition!
