Diamond Embossed Card

Well this technique I wanted to share – Irene left a comment on my blog and I saw she had a blog herself – I visited it and do daily – I came across this STUNNING card  Irene had done – so wanted you to look and thankfully Irene has agreed I could borrow her idea – and also Irene has kindly added this the first card she made using this technique at the bottom of her post

Diamond Embossed Card

1. Here is the finished card – it was so quick and not a patch on Irene`s card but I needed it to be a small workshop and if I did it again I would use an image with less white around the edges


2. Print your image out – this one is from the Victorian Companion – I then edged the design with Sakura gold pentouch


3. Line the 2 opposite corners on the scoreboard following the same line ( this is done on the box lid side of my scoreboard – score all lines across – turn the design so you score again but cross over the making little diamonds shapes


4. I actually did this twice each way so I got a deep etch


5. Decoupage some of the flowers to embellish the bottom of the card


 6. Assemble the card using a co-ordinating backing paper mounted on mirri card – both the topper and the backing paper are on foam tape – place the decoupage flowers in the corner and on the top corner place a bow and a few flowers


Hope you enjoyed this useful technique – more today
