Create With Friends 18th Birthday Card. I have been itching to make my own Patterned Paper using the stamps from the Create With Friends set. There are so many wonderful words in the set that can make a real statement, so why not have a go. I chose the ‘Amazing’ because I wanted to make a card for an 18th Birthday, which I think is a pretty amazing occasion.
To make this a really special card, I decided to heat emboss with White Powder on a Pacific Point base. The key to this is to use an Embossing Buddy, or similar, to ensure that there is no stray powder. If you don’t have an Embossing Buddy, you can try a little cornflour in a muslin bag. Then you want to line up your first stamped image carefully, this is where you will be working from in the next few steps. Stamp with Versamark and then add embossing powder.
Adding the embossing powder after you stamp each image means that, not only do you know where you have already stamped, but the ink will still be on the surface, ready to take the powder. Keep going until you have covered the piece of card and only then, heat the embossing powder.
To finish the card, I simply die cut ’18’ from Poppy Parade card, backed with Adhesive foam, added the Pacific Point layer to a Basic White mat, before adding this to the outside of a standard C6 card base. It really is that simple. I did cut my original piece of Pacific Point to be a full 1/4 of a sheet so I could trim off the edges, which can look a bit tatty after heat embossing over the edge. A really simple card, and quite quick to put together.
