Create An Enamel Look Brooch To Add To Your Cards

by Lydia Evans

Hello there everyone! Happy Friday! Lydia here. Today Ill be sharing how you can create an enamel look brooch using dies to add as a gift to your cards.

I started by cutting all of the dies from Craft-A-Flower Cistus Die Set from colored cardstock. For the flowers I used Red Sunset Gradient Cardstock and Coffee Break Gradient Cardstock for the leaves. Once the were cut I adhered them together using wet glue. I also cut an extra base for the leaves and flower that I would be using for the brooch.  I cut parts from the layered leaves using the flower die so when I adhered them to the extra bases everything was mice and flat.

To create the enamel effect I added embossing ink to the layered die cut and heat set with Crystal Clear Embossing Powder. I did this around 5 times to get a super shiny look. Then to create the brooch. I cut another base for the flower this time using felt. This was added to the back of the embossed layered die cut using felt glue. I then added a brooch back into place and added a little piece of felt over the back to secure it.

To add the brooch to the card I cut a strip of Moonrock Cardstock and added it into place on the card base. I added a little slit through the front of the card so I could slip the brooch down the strip of cardstock and then popped the strip through the slit to keep it int place.

Once the brooch was in place I added the other flowers into place on the card base and added a sentiment from Fancy Greetings Stamp Set.

To see how this card and gift came together please watch the video below. Or over on YouTube:
