Recipe Tips

Use three ink colors to "paint" with. Sponge daubers will be your "brushes." Assign each dauber to an ink pad so you don’t muddy up the colors. Add a few strokes of each color to the Superfine White 4 bar folded card. Coat the entire surface of the front of the card with clear embossing powder and heat set. Write a greeting on the front with a Versamarker. Coat with gold embossing powder and heat set. Round the corners with a corner rounder punch and pair with an Antique Gold envelope.
