Jewel Card Diamond Star
A Hobby Art Diamond Star jewel rubber stamp is stamped in silver on two shades of blue. Several layers are created, cut out and assembled as a decoupage to produce a beautiful card that would suit many occasions.
Take two sheets of card stock in different shades of blue. Stamp and emboss four images of the Hobby Art Jewel image in silver, two on each colour of card.
The method for stamp embossing is as follows. Use a clear or tinted embossing ink pad.
Stamp your design and while the ink is still wet sprinkle silver embossing powder over the entire design. Tap off excess on to a sheet of paper, this can then be returned to the jar for reuse.
Heat the design to activate the powder. This is usually done with a heat tool. Keep the tool moving with circular motions so you do not overheat one spot. The design will become raised and shiny. This should take about 30 seconds.
When the card has cooled off you can cut out the shapes with scissors or a craft knife. The intricate design of jewel stamps makes them suitable for producing several layers of decoupage work. We have chosen to alternate dark and light shades of blue card.
The cutout shapes ready to be assembled.
Make a single fold greetings card from one shade of the card stock. Our greetings card is 127 mm square (5 inches).
Mount the layers of the jewel on the front of the card with double-sided mini foam pads to give a 3-dimensional effect.
As a finishing touch a small gemstone is added to the middle of the design.
