Create a Valentine’s Card with VersaFine Clair

by Roni Johnson

Normally I would never dream of trying to emboss a single multi-step image much less several due to the time-consuming process of lining up the various layers. VersaFine Clair’s unique properties now allow me to do just that! I can take my time to align all of the layers on multiple images and still have time to emboss them all at one time.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 40 minutes


Step 1

Die cut a heart shape from plain white cardstock.

Step 2

Set the die-cut heart aside and use the negative as a mask. Temporarily tape the negative heart mask over a piece of white cardstock. Stamp the multi-step flowers inside the masked off area using VersaFine Clair in Tulip Red (bright red) and Nocturne (deep black).

Step 3

Remove the mask and discard.

Step 4

Sprinkle Imagine’s Embossing Powder in Clear over the entire panel. Shake off excess and melt with a heat tool.

Step 5

Even after several minutes, I am able to emboss the entire print! Next, trim the panel to fit to the card design.

Step 6

Stamp the “Happy Valentine’s Day” sentiment using VersaFine Clair in Nocturne. Sprinkle with black embossing powder and melt with heat tool.

Step 7

Adhere the embossed flower pattern heart and Valentine’s sentiment on a 4 x 5.75” cardstock panel leaving a gap between the two elements. Add ribbon to the gap and secure with Tear It! Tape.

Step 8

To finish this design, affix a tiny bow to the card and seal it using On Point Glue.

Step 9

Adhere the entire panel to a grey 4.5 x 6.25” card base.
