Greeting Card Project: Embossed Vine Plus Stamp

What you need

  • card stock - white - 8½" x 5½" folded in half to make a 4¼" x 5½" card blank
  • card stock - tan speckled - 3" x 3"
  • card stock - white - 2 1/2" x 3"
  • dragonfly stamp (credit Stampin' Up)
  • embossing ink
  • stencil
  • stenciling brush
  • glue or glue stick
  • paper trimmer (optional)

How to do it

Step 1

For the vine border at the bottom and left side of the card: If you're using non-ShapeBoss stencils or templates, go to the instructions for dry embossing. If you're using the ShapeBoss, go to the ShapeBoss instructions.

Step 2

Align the vine template/stencil over the raised image on the front of the card. Using the ink pad and stenciling brush, dab the ink onto the card front through the template/stencil - this may take some practice to do a neat job. Don't forget to clean the brush and template/stencil afterward.

Step 3

Stamp the image on to the white card and trim to size. Cut the tan card 1/4" larger than the white card (so the tan border is 1/8" all the way around). Use the glue or glue stick to mount the white card to the tan card.

Step 4

Glue the tan card to the card blank in position as shown in the photo at the top of the page.
