  1. card angel mini


    This is a really quick and very simple card to make.  Perfect if you want to make a batch of similar cards.

    You will need:

    Mini aperture cards

    Backing paper - we used this paper from Hot Off The Press 

    Laser cut Angel embellishment

    Double sided tape, foam pads, Versamark ink pad, Clear embossing powder, gold ink/pen, heat embossing tool

    To make:

    1. Put a scrap piece of paper inside the card and carefully draw a fine line around the edge of the aperture with gold pen or ink.

    2. Cut a square of the backing paper to 85mmx85mm and stick with double sided tape to the inside of the aperture.  Remember that you need the patterned side to show through the aperture.

    3. Carefully cover the front of the angel with Versamark ink and sprinkle with embossing powder.  Shake off the excess and heat the angel with the heat gun to melt the powder.  Repeat this step twice more and you should have a beautiful, triple embossed embellishment.

    4. Attach a few double sided mounting pads onto the reverse of the angel and position in the centre of the aperture.

    How easy was that?

    If you don't have the necessary supplies to emboss the angel you could leave it undecorated or use a product such as Glossy Accents to give it a little dimension.
