This white on white gatefold card is the perfect gift for a late Valentine’s Day, a wedding or any occasion that requires a delicate style for a card. The embossed doily can be created to stand out more by the addition of glitter or glitter glue. No matter what day it is used for it will definitely show love.
Place the scored card inside of the Doily Art Embossing Folder by Spellbinders by sliding the backside of the folder inside of the card base as shown. The flaps to the card should be on the inside of the folder and the back of the card should be behind the folder. Now, run it through your die cutting/ embossing machine.
Carefully line up the circle in the center of the doily embossing folder and run it through the die cut/embossing machine to emboss it. Remember as you move the folder to place it in the machine not to allow the circle to move or it will not emboss the center of the doily.
Now, add some glitter using glue or use glitter glue (Stickles) by placing small dots around the embossed circle. Use a paint brush to spread the glitter out to the edges of the circle. Add more dots as needed to cover the entire area.
Apply the glitter to the doily, as well, to make it sparkle.
Punch a heart (Medium Heart by Martha Stewart) from card stock and attach it to the circle. Then, attach the circle to one side of the card opening so that it is in the center of the doily using a tape runner.
This delicate card is perfect for any occasion and adds a shine to any event. The beauty of it is not only in the design, but in the fact it is handmade. There’s no better way to show love than a special card.
