Hepburn Flocked Elegance

Welcome to CropStop's Hepburn Embossing Folder Feature Month! We're highlighting projects created with the gorgeous Couture Creations Hepburn Embossing Folder every Friday in September. Members of the CSW Distributors Design Team have created cards using the Hepburn Embossing Folder and we will be sharing them with you all month long.

The CropStop Blog will also feature a "Show and Tell" link the first Saturday of every month.  This will be an opportunity for you to share your embossed projects with us!
You can link up your creations and show them off in our blog!

Now, on to our first fabulous card...

Hi! Dana here today sharing how to make your own flocked cardstock with the Hepburn Embossing Folder from the Couture Creations Elegance Collection and flocking powder. 

The  raised areas of  embossed cardstock provides a flat surface that is ideal for adding flock.

1. Emboss a piece of cardstock with the Couture Creations Hepburn Embossing Folder. 

2. Choose several colors of flocking powder. Use a glue pad, craft glue or a double-sided adhesive to apply the flocking powder to the cardstock.

3. Pour the flocking over the cardstock, pat down using a scrap piece of paper, and shake of the excess. Repeat for the remaining colors of flock.

4. Use a heat tool to set the flock for a more permanent finish. Trim the excess cardstock from the flocked design.

5.  Mount the flocked cardstock onto a card base and embellish to finish.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
