How to Use Alcohol Markers on Colored Cardstock | Creative Coloring with Erum (with Video Tutorial!)

by Erum Tasneem

Hello everyone! I have a super easy and festive card to share today featuring the Poinsettia Cluster 3D Embossing Folder.

  1. Emboss a panel of red cardstock using Poinsettia Cluster 3D Embossing Folder.
  2. Use Grapevine, Vineyard Berry, Velvet, Ruby Red, Heart Beat, and Coral Bliss to color the Poinsettias. (You do not need all these shades; my cardstock didn't match the red alcohol markers, so I used the Coral Bliss at the end to completely cover the flowers).
  3. Use scissors to cut around the embossed flowers.alcohol markers
  4. Place the piece back in the embossing folder to emboss it again in case it lost some of the dimensions while coloring.
  5. Adhere piece onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ Kraft cardstock base and cut off the excess overhang.
  6. Apply white splatters from the Pure White Ink Spray.
  7. Die cut the word “winter” from the Winter Typography Die Set out of Dazzling Diamond Cardstock.
  8. Mask and stamp the word “wishes” in Obsidian Pigment Ink from the Winter Typography Stamp Set.
  9. Adhere gems to flower centers.
