Let’s be honest here – those of us in the United States are not always adept at translating mm to inches and pounds to cents (or it dollars?) See what I mean? There are handy conversion guides, luckily for us, all over the internet. Now I’m sure you’re wondering why this is important. Well, I’ve been subscribing to several British craft magazines and their instructions are always in mm.
So I got tired of trying to translate or worse yet, guess, at what sizes my cards should be or how much I was really spending at a favorite on-line UK craft store. So here are some links that may help you:
This is a really easy technique to create elegant embellishment for our cards in 3 easy steps:
Die cut your panel, image or sentiment several times from white cardstock- three times is usually perfect for card layers. Layer, align and glue the die cuts on top of each other. Ink up the top layer and sides with pigment ink and pour embossing powder over the first layer.
Heat emboss the first layer, then dip the still hot powdered surface into another layer of powder. If you have Ultra Thick Embossing Powder use it!
Glue the cooled faux metal embellishment onto your card.
