We hope you will join us in our journey to explore new and interesting craft supplies from all over the world. If there is any item you are particularly interested, don't hesitate to contact us!

Its That Time of the Year Again

When just getting a gift for your significant other is just not enough, a handmade card conveys the emotion that words can't express! Over here at The Craft Depot, we always endeavor to provide inspirational ideas for all skill levels.

What you will need

For this card, I have selected various Altenew products. Since I'm using the Build-a-Flower Camellia Japonica, I decided to use a heavyweight 80lb card stock to prevent the paper from oversaturation and will also retain its shape after all the layers have been stamped. I would recommend using a stamping platform for layering stamps, although stamp blocks may also be used. I chose the Red Cosmos mini ink cube set for the flowers and green Fields mini in cube set for the leaves.

Stamp all your flowers and leaves ( I used Altenew's mini ink cubes from the Red Cosmos and Green Leaf sets), with a few extra, and die-cut and set them aside. The extras help in case there is any damage to a piece and those not used can be stored for future projects. Next, we take a piece of cardstock and emboss it using the Tim Holtz 3D embossing folder in Textured Fades Botanical design, and using the clear Versamark Ink Pad, lightly graze over the raised area and dust with Perfect Pearls Perfect Gold Powder. Set the powder by spritzing it lightly with a fine mister. This helps set the powder and prevents it from fading. Using the same cardstock, I stamp and die-cut the Baroque Motif Stamp and emboss with the Wow! embossing powder in Metallic Gold Rich with the Ranger Heat It Tool. Stamp the sentiment on a rectangular piece of black cardstock and emboss with the same embossing powder.

 Its time to start assembling the card. Take a 4"x6" piece of the Altenew Apple Red Cardstock and mount it on the embossed base piece with double-sided tape. Arrange all the die cuts in the order you like before apply any adhesive. I used foam dots, adding some dimension. Once you are happy with the layout, start affixing the pieces onto the panel.

For the base, cut AC Heavyweight 80lb white cardstock to the dimension of 8-1/2"x6-1/4", scoring at 4-1/4". Mount the assembled piece on this base with double-sided tape or tacky glue. You can stamp a sentiment inside or leave it as is to be filled with a handwritten note to make the card more personalized.
