Golden Glam Square Card Set

Hi Friends,

We have a treat for you from Lisa P. She is showing a hot trend using gold. To make it even fancier, she incorporates gold embossing. It creates the illusion of fanciness, but is still lovely and simple. This is a great thing to make as a card set to give as a gift or if you want to make some cards to have on hand for the next occasion you have.

Lisa explains how to create these little beauties.

Hello there, DeNami Design friends! It’s Lisa P. I don’t know about you, but I am loving the gold trend we’re seeing in the crafty world these days! From embossing powders to patterned papers to washi tape to threads to sequins---there are so many ways to add splashes of gold to your projects. Today I’ll show you how to add some golden glam to your cards with heat embossing. Let’s get started.

Step 1: Cut three 2.5” x 2.5” panels from white cardstock. Stamp your image and/or sentiment in VersaMark ink, sprinkle with gold embossing powder, and heat emboss. (You’ll notice in the Step 2 photo that I changed things up a bit and embossed an image on one panel, a sentiment on another panel, and both an image and sentiment on the third panel.)

Step 2: Stamp additional images/sentiments in black ink onto each panel as shown. Add touches of color to each image using soufflé pens or markers. The soufflé pens are really fun to use with embossed images. I used soufflé pens on the butterfly and the cluster of hearts. I used markers to color the tiny hearts on the envelopes.

Step 3: Make three 3” x 3” card bases from white cardstock. Stamp splatters in black onto two of the card bases. Emboss the splatters in gold on the third card base.

Finished Cards: Adhere smaller panels to card bases with foam adhesive as shown.

So simple, yet hip and trendy! Here’s a look at each card individually:

I hope you like my cards for today and feel inspired to make some 3x3 cards and/or use gold embossing in a future project. Imagine sneaking a little card like this into your husband’s briefcase or your kiddo’s lunchbox…or leaving one on a co-worker’s desk. What a nice surprise that would be! You could even punch a hole in the top corner and use the card as a tag on a gift bag. So many possibilities!

Thanks for visiting!
