Beautiful Embossed Card

At the last Designers PlayDate Kathryn created this beautiful embossed card using products supplied by Simplicity Creative Group.

Stunning card using stamp, markers and embossing powder, by Kathryn Gibson


Kathryn first brushed the powder tool over the card face to ensure a beautiful embossing result ( no stray embossing powder or fingerprints). She stamped her image and covered it with gold embossing powder which she heat set. 

Using the craft markers she shaded in her image. Using the gold metallic paint marker she beautifully edged her card, and also the edges of the ribbon.

Isn’t it beautiful?

Most in attendance had NO idea that Simplicity owns so many great companies like; EKTools, K&Company, Martha Stewart Crafts™, Jolee’s Boutique, Inkadinkadoo, and American Girl Crafts.

The designers were THRILLED with the selection and variety of products to play with ( estimated value per designer was $270 CDN MSRP) !

Just check out what they created ( and be sure to hover over the picture for the full caption):
