Create A Fashion Forward Birthday Card With Mboss

This month I had the pleasure of using Imagine’s new Mboss embossing powders for my projects. They are fine embossing powders that come in a lot of colors and glittery combinations, for instance: Valentine which is red and gold, New Year’s Eve which is black and gold, as well as special effect powders like gold metallic and new solid colors. In this project, I used glittery color combinations Valentine for the dress and New Years Eve for the background, purse, and sentiment. Check it out!

Skills: Beginner
Time 30 minutes


Step 1

Using a dress template or die cut, cut out a dress from watercolor paper.

Step 2

Place dress on foam and burnish the back side of the dress with a stylus. The dress will take on a curved shape giving it a dimensional look.

Step 3

Ink the front of the dress with the VersaMark ink.

Step 4

Apply Valentine Mboss Embossing Powder and using a heat tool, melt the powder. These new embossing powders come in a bag, in this image I added some powder onto a dish so that you can get a good view of this awesome color.

Step 5

Using the VersaMark ink, stamp a background image. Apply New Years Eve Mboss embossing powder and melt the powder with a heat tool. Do the same on the “Happy Birthday” sentiment and purse.

Step 6

Adhere a ribbon sash to the waist of the dress. Apply On Point Glue to the edges of the dress only and glue onto the card base. This will help to keep its dimension.

Step 7

Assemble the card with the dress, birthday sentiment, and matching card base.
