Kim Haskell shares how she creates an easy DIY card using Ranger Texture Paste and Speckled Embossing Powders.


Step 1:  Working on a Wendy Vecchi Perfect Cardstock Panel, apply Texture Paste through the Tim Holtz Countdown Layering Stencil with a palette knife.

Step 2:  Sprinkle edges with Silver Embossing Powder. Tap off excess powder and return to jar.

Step 3: Sprinkle remaining Texture Paste with Speckle Embossing Powder in Blueberry. Tap off excess powder and return to jar.

Step 4: Melt powder the a Heat It Craft Tool and send background aside.

Step 5: Trim down a piece of Perfect Cardstock to 1.5" x 4.25" and ink edges with Letter It Clear Embossing Ink. 

Step 6: Sprinkle edges with Silver Embossing Powders and melt with Heat It Craft Tool.

Step 7: Trim background and use Letter It White Foam Tape to adhere to a A2 size Perfect Cardstock Card. 

Step 8: Layer sentiment over card with Foam Tape.
