Our newest Wausau Linen colors in 12 x12 are : Burgandy, Eclipse Black, Midnight Blue and Chocolate Truffle
I created a few samples to show you what can be done with this Fabulous Linen and (NEW) Printable #65 Stardream paper.
Project List: Midnight Blue Wausau Royal Linen 80lb Cover 12 x 12, Crystal Stardream Metallic 65# Cover 8.5 x 11, Heat Gun, Embossing Powder, Glue, Bone Folder, Pop Dots, Double Stick Tape, Ruler and Ribbon.
Here is what you will be creating. It is a 9 x 4 Wedding/Occasion invitation. It will fit perfectly in our NO.10 Stardream Silver Envelope (4 1/8″ x 9 1/2″ )
The reason I choose to create this card using our new #65 Cover Crystal Stardream is because when it is printed on an inkejet printer it remains wet with out blurring or spreading (how cool is this !). Because it remains wet I am able to sprinkle embossing powder on it which gives it a beautiful raised image once I dry it with the heat gun.
First I cut my Midnight Blue Linen Cardstock down to 4 x 9.2 inches (cut 2 times). Than I scored (using my ruler and bone) the blue cardstock about 3/4 ” from the edge on both cut pieces. What I did next was glue them together from the score to the edge to create a booklet style card. I than cut and printed the Stardream Metallic paper. I simply embossed it while it was wet. What’s great about this process is that your creativity is limit less. There is so much clip art and photoshop images that will work Beautifully using this process and an inkjet printer. If you can print it you can emboss it. I also embossed the Silver Stardream Envelope show in the picture above.
Here are some close ups of the embossing on the invitation and front cover butterfly that I hand cut out:
The next card is showing you once again how beautifully our Linen paper can be printed on. This is the Wausau Natural Royal Linen® 80 lb Cover wt Cardstock.
I cut the cardstock down and printed it on a 7×7. The texture in the paper gives such a richness and quality to any project you create using it !
