Flocked Thank You Card by Dana Tatar

Hi Couture Creations fans!  Dana here today sharing how to make your own flocked cardstock with a Couture Creations embossing folder and flocking powder.  The raised areas of the embossed cardstock provides a flat surface that is ideal for adding flock.

Step One: Emboss a piece of cardstock with a favorite Couture Creations embossing folder.  I used the Couture Creations Hepburn Embossing Folder from the Elegance Collection.

Step Two: 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.

Step Three: 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.

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

Step Five: Mount the flocked cardstock onto a card base and embellish to finish.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I'd love to see your take on this technique! Try using a colored cardstock or patterned paper with flocking powder for a bolder look!  Please share your projects featuring Couture Creations products with us on the Couture Creations facebook page!
