Good morning! Kathy here, creating art for Imagine Crafts! Today I have a new tutorial for you. Have you tried the VersaMark Frost ink? This was the perfect ink to provide a sugar-like coating to today’s Gingerbread card. The VersaColor inks make your die-cutting easy and stop the search for the perfect colored scraps!
So today I have a project for you that uses the VersaMark Frost and VersaColor Inks. So, let’s make a card.
Skill Level: Intermediate
Time to complete: 1 hour
You will need a top-folding card base measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2“. You will also need a piece of colored card stock measuring 4.25” x 5.5” and another piece of white, layering card stock the same size.
Using Maker’s Movement A2 Sweater Cover plate, die-cut the white card stock and and adhere to the colored card with On-Point liquid glue. Adhere the entire panel to the card base with Tear-It! Tape.
I inked a piece of scrap card stock with a variety of VersaMark Inks. I allowed this panel to dry. This is a quick way to small pieces of colored card stock for small die-cutting.
Cut the Gingerbread House from a piece of Kraft colored card stock. Then use the VersaMark Frost ink to apply a “sugar coating”. This is what I am calling it. The picture doesn’t do it justice but it sure looks sugar coated in real life!
Now it’s time to cut all the cute little pieces from this Gingerbread House set. I added some Glossy Accents to some pieces, some shimmer pen to others and did a little ink blending around the house and the gingerbread man. I also added a glitter glue to the snow on the roof and the ground.
Stamp a sentiment and add a shadow to the strip. I used Delicata Golden Glitz ink for my sentiment. Now you can assemble your card. The house, gingerbread man and sentiment were all adhered with foam tape.
I hope you enjoy this card and the tutorial. Thanks for stopping by I appreciate all of you!
