Glittered Embossed Note Cards

Posted by Morena Hockley

I love handmade cards.

Who doesn't like a handwritten note? In this age of e-mails and instant messaging, it's always a nice surprise to receive a handmade note. I like to make simple, all occasion note cards to keep handy for sending quick thank you messages, or even just saying hello. By using embossing folders and glitter paint I can quickly make several simple monochromatic cards in one sitting to have handy.

Supplies used:

Emboss the card stock with the desired folder. Cut to fit a pre made card.

Select a color of Glamour Dust paint that matches the card stock, and quickly brush the raised areas of the embossed image. This gives the card a pretty shine and a professional looking finish.

Mount the embossed paper onto a blank, pre made card. You can always embellish it more later if you choose to.

It's hard to capture in photos how pretty the shimmer of the glitter paint is. I'm always asked, "Did you really make this?" when someone opens these notes. Yes, I did, and so can you! Have fun crafting and creating!
