Valentines Keepsakes card

Hi There!

Shell Carman here today with a quick & easy embossing tutorial.
Shell Carman- Valentines Keepsake cardMost of you have probably tried this stamping & embossing technique but I really wanted to show you that you’re not just limited to your papers. I love to jazz up my Keepsake Envelopes with some stamped images & this is a great way to go about it as there is no ink that can smudge on the plastic. Once the image is set with a heat gun then it is there to stay!!

As Valentines day is around the corner I have created a Valentines Keepsake card. The Keepsake Envelopes are a great way to secure those personal love notes & cute mementos!

1. Take your desired Keepsake Envelope size, a Versamark ink pad in clear & a stamp

2. Press the stamp onto the clear ink pad & then stamp image onto keepsake envelope

3. In a glitter tray sprinkle embossing powder over stamped image. Shake off excess powder & set with a heat gun. Be sure to keep the heat gun a good distance away from the envelop as it will melt the plastic

To decorate the card & keep with the Valentines cupid theme I also used the 3D Foam Hearts & 3D Foam Wings. I sprinkled embossing powder directly onto the foam shapes & set the powder with a heat gun
