The first technique is one of the easiest and quickest. This is also a great way to showcase the larger, more elaborate sentiments.

I love using metallic embossing powders on my projects for some subtle shine. And the Madhubani Borders stamp set is perfect for this technique.

  • Take a piece of black card stock and stamp the borders from the Madhubani Borders stamp set with embossing ink. Heat emboss with a variety of metallic embossing powders. 
  • Heat emboss the sentiment from the Let's Party stamp set on a separate strip with gold embossing powder.
  • Pop up both the panels at an angle on the black card base and trim.

Here is a closer look at the card.

Metallic inks are also a great way to add some interest to simple stamped cards. I used the Floral Fantasy stamp set which was the very first stamp by Mudra that I bought. And I still love it as much!

  • Take a piece of white card stock and stamp the base image with blue ink. Stamp the detail image from the Floral Fantasy stamp set with metallic gold ink.
  • Trim a mat from blue paper and emboss with an embossing folder.
  • Stamp the sentiment on a strip of the same blue paper and heat emboss with white embossing powder.
  • Mount the layers on a white card base.
