Card Club

Here are a few of the cards we've made in card class the past few months:

These embossed cards are beautiful but very easy to achieve - You will need Clear Embossing powder for the one on the left and White Embossing powder for the one on the right.  VersaMark Ink & A heat Gun.
 here's some instructions:

Left Card:
4 1/2 x 4 1/2 cardbase
I then cut the following using the cricut Artiste cartridge:
pg 63 "C" page - CARD 2x2, 2 1/2 x 2 1/2, 2 3/4 x 2 3/4
You will also need one that is 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 BUT you need to space it away from the other images cut so you can have a square edge to cut around it - making it a mat piece.
The image is inked in VersaMark ink and then immediately inked into a colored ink pad and stamped on the 2x2 cricut piece - pour clear embossing powder over it - tap off the extra and heat emboss. 
I then layered the pieces alternating w/3-D foam between the 2x2 & the 2 1/2 x 2 1/2, and then foam again between the 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 & the 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 which is glued directly to the card front.
Right Card:
I used our new alcohol markers on this card - remember they soak into the cardstock so you will want to layer the paper you use these markers on.
base I cut is 4 1/4 x 11 - with a top fold - this allowed me to run a ribbon through the card.
Creme Brulee 4 x 5 1/4 - if you want you can add another piece for the inside of the card
I used the corner rounder on the 2 bottom corners
This card uses the masking technique - so stamp your main image once on scrap paper - like photo copy paper - trim it out and set it aside.
Stamp the main image onto your cardstock using VersaMark Ink and then cover in White embossing powder - tap off the extra and heat emboss.  Now take your mask piece and place it over the image you just embossed and stamp the image a second time to layer the images - repeat for as many layers you want - in this case I have 3 flowers layered in the corner - the 2nd two flowers were added behind the first because of the masking technique.
I then used the alcohol markers to color the flowers in.
Both of these cards came from other consultants - I tweaked some a bit here and there but want to give credit to them for their ideas.
