How to Make an Embossed Watercolour Bunting Card

Difficulty Beginner
Budget < £10
Time < 1 hour

There’s no end to what can be achieved with embossing folders, especially when you have a set of watercolour pencils to hand! We’ve added a wash of colour to our bunting card by picking out the embossed sections, however this could easily be reversed with the flat areas be coloured in instead… The choice is yours!

How to make

Step 1 

Gather up all of the product need for the make. Trim an 8 x 8” white card blank down to a 6 x 8” side folding card blank. Cover the entire front with a trimmed panel of turquoise blue cardstock.

Step 2 

Attach a 19.5 x 14.5cm panel of lighter turquoise cardstock to the front, fixing this slightly off centre.

Step 3 

Cut an 18 x 13.5cm panel of white cardstock ready to emboss the bunting pattern swooping down the panel.

Step 4 

Starting at the top, lay the cardstock panel inside the folder at a slight angle then run this through a die-cutting machine. Repeat this process, placing the folder in slightly different positions each time.

Step 5 

Colour each bunting flag using watercolour pencils, alternating the colours as you go. Fix the finished panel to the front of the card using 3d foam pads.

Step 6 

Trim a 14.5 x 3.5cm panel of white cardstock and use the Happy Birthday folder to emboss the sentiment across the panel. Fix in position on the card front using more 3d foam pads.
