Soft, subtle color and rich texture give this simple card layout a touch of elegance.
This technique is great for getting double-duty from your embossing plates—and from your color sprays! You can get some really varied effects, depending on the design of your embossing plate, and the type of spray you use—whether that’s a bright, bold color or something softer, like this Clearsnap spray in Bubblegum.

You Will Need

Labels with Dots Embossing Plate (Hot Off The Press/Paper Wishes)
Inside/Outside Dazzles (Hot Off The Press)
Opaque Bright White Superfine embossing powder (WOW Embossing Powder)
Stephanie Barnard Bubblegum spray (Clearsnap)
Gold brads
Pink paper flowers
Cardstock: Red, white
Cardboard box or area to spray
Paper towel
Foam tape
  • Step 1

    Emboss white cardstock with the Label with Dots pattern. Place the cardstock with the raised side facing you (so you can feel the bumps of the dots) and tap on your embossing inkpad. Heavy tapping will create more white area, so keep that in mind as you apply the ink.

  • Step 2

    Immediately sprinkle with white embossing powder. Tap off excess and heat-set.

  • Step 3

    Place the cardstock on a cardboard box or spraying surface and spritz with Bubblegum. Blot with paper towel.

  • Step 4

    Mat on white, red and white cardstock. Make a red card base, then glue the matted piece to the front.

  • Step 5

    Add the Dazzles stickers in the center of the fame. Insert gold brads in pink flowers and foam-tape to the card front.
