SIMPLE BUT EFFECTIVE....


That title above should be my middle name.... even if I try and go grungy, I just can't do it. so I'll stick to what I love :) :) 
This card can work for so many occasions,  and these are the sort I like to have a stock pile of, ready to whip one out when need be.

The technique is simple the WOW Embossing Powders are effective.
Take 2 pieces of square white card, one smaller than the other, it's up to you what size you want to do this. and attach the smaller one on top of the larger one with repo adhesive, ink up your WOW Brocade Clear Stamp using Versamark Ink (other inks are available, but we LOVE this one) !! keeping your stamp on the table facing up, lay your card on top of the stamp and rub all over the back of the card to transfer the ink, then using the NEW WOW Caribbean Jewels Embossing Glitter Kit (available at Sugar and Spice NOW !!!!) pinch and sprinkle one colour over the stamped design, shake off, then taking another colour from the set pour all over and shake off, take cardstock apart and then heat set. Don't worry if it didn't go all the way to the inner edge on the larger piece as the mounting covers this.
Talking of mounting, mount up on your chosen colour card stock. then taking some seam binding wrap around the smaller piece and tie a bow. Add a WOW embossed embellishment, stick it all together on a card blank and there you have it !!

Here's a video tutorial on making the gorgeous WOW Embellishments

Enjoy
