It’s That Easy - Lady Liberty Card/Invite
Created by OMC Designer Sandy

Creating Dimension with stamps and embossing is as simple as counting 1-2-3! Make it a card or an invite – it’s up to you!

Supplies Used:

Ranger Ink : Archival Ink Pads - Cobalt

Copic Markers : Blending Card X-Press It
Tim Holtz : Americana Silhouettes Stamp Set
Sizzix : Embossing Diffuser 3PK Set #1
American Crafts : Specialty Paper - Foil
Bazzill Basics : 12x12 Cardstock - Red
Jenni Bowlin - Dye Ink Pads - Chili Powder
Star Embossing Folder


1. Trim

Red card base 11¼" x 4½", score in half. Blue matte 5½" x 4¼", white base 5½" x 4¼" this will trim down more after its embossed.
2. Stamp & Emboss

Stamp lady liberty in center of white cardstock (embossing powder would look great on this too).

Place in embossing folder and place diffuser on top of embossing folder.

Place the folder on top of white cutting mat and one clear shim.

Run through Big Shot. Remove from folder and lightly ink embossed design with contrasting ink.

Trim edges to 5¼ x 4 inches. Glue embossed design to blue cardstock and then to card base.

3. Finish 
Trim a white cardstock piece for inside of card 5" x 4". Ink edges and stamp sentiment or place invitation info on cardstock. Adhere to base.

This card looks difficult but is really quick to put together. You can also put the cut out portion of the diffuser under the embossing folder to raise just that portion.

Happy crafting!
