Learn to Make a Textured Spring Card

By Martha Lucia Gomez

Hello there! Today’s tutorial is about texture with Fireworks and Embossing Powder! Do you know that you can create a splattered effect with the embossing powder? Let me share the project with you.  

Skill: Beginning

Time: 60 minutes


Step 1:

Take a selection of Fireworks! colors of your preference to create the first part of the splatter effect. First, spray a single color over your craft mat. Grab a piece of white smooth cardstock or any type of cardstock and press softly over the mat. Let the paper dry naturally or speed the process with the heat tool if you don’t want to wait a few minutes.

Repeat the above process with all the colors that you wanted to use on your background. In my sample, I used Potter’s Clay, Paris Dusk and Bamboo Leaves.

Step 2:

While the background is in drying process, you can work on the card base. Select a color of VersaFine Clair that coordinates with your background. Stamp lineal images over it. If you want, you can emboss it with clear embossing powder. In my sample, I used VersaFine Clair Shady Lane and don’t emboss de leaves.

Step 3:

In a separate piece of White Smooth Cardstock, I stamped a floral image with VersaFine Clair Glamorous and then covered it with Clear Embossing Powder. Additionally, with a tiny spoon or spatula, I sprinkle Gold Embossing Powder over the flowers and leaves, trying to keep the powder inside of the lines.

Step 4:

With a paint brush, I removed the excess of the powder around the borders of the flower and then, melted the powder with the heat tool.

As you may have noticed, to create the splattered effect, I didn’t use ink, just the powder.

Step 5:

To continue with the process, I resized the background layer in angle. Then, I die cut the floral image with a coordinated die. Additionally, I pasted all the pieces over the card base using crafty foam tape to add more

dimension to the card.   

Step 6:

As final touch, stamp a sentiment in a different color and paste over the decorated card with crafty foam.

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget that you can use different types of ink and embossing powders to create your own look!
