Send a Friend a Lovely #treatyoself Card


by Alison Heikkila


Summer is upon us, and isn’t it nice to kick back with a refreshing glass of lemonade? Today, I am going to share how the VersaMarker makes embossing specific areas easy, allowing this lemonade card to shine enough to make you thirsty just looking at it!

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 45 minutes



Step 1

Stamp the drink on to mixed media paper two times with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Using the VersaMarker’s bullet tip, color in the drink itself, and sprinkle Clear Yellow Embossing Powder on top, and heat with embossing gun.


 Step 2

Color the flag on the straw in the same way, and use Ruby Red Embossing Powder on it. Heat set. Add a little color to the top of the glass with the Summer Sky Memento Marker. Fussy cut the two completed drinks.

Step 3

To create the card base, cut a piece of yellow cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 8.” Make a mat of light blue cardstock to fit on the base. Cut an oval in pale yellow cardstock to the size of 3″ x 2 1/4.” Using the VersaMarker, draw a faux stitch around the edge and emboss it with Periwinkle. Make a small blue oval to 2 1/2″ x 1 3/4.” Stamp “yum” all over it with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.


Step 4

On the blue mat, stamp the same drink stamp all over using the VersaMark ink pad. Emboss with Baby Blue Powder.


Step 5

Cut and glue a piece of yellow ribbon to the blue mat. Find a spot to stamp the Treatyoself stamp and ink with VersaMark. Heat emboss with Ruby Red. Glue all the pieces down.
