Burnished Velvet Poinsettia

Burnished Velvet is a technique I often choose for a special card. Basically, you cover a piece of light cardstock with wide Scor-Tape, and then rub in transparent micro-glitter. The more you rub, the sparklier (is that a word?) the glitter gets. For this project, I stamped the cardstock first and then applied the tape.

Here's how this card came together...


Heartfelt Creations HCPC 2291 Regal Poinsettia 2 Precut Set
Heartfelt Creations HCD 713 Decorative Lace Border Die
Stardream Metallic Cardstock, red and white
Stampin Up Cardstock, vanilla and navy
VersaMark Ink
Silver Heat Embossing Powder
Distress Ink Sapphire
5" Scor-Tape
Micro-fine Glitter
Silver Thread


  1. Cut red cardstock to 7 1/4  x 10 1/2 inches and score to create 5 1/4 x 7 1/4  inch card;
  2. Cut vanilla cardstock to 5 x7  inch and stamp randomly with Distress Ink;
  3. Cover stamping with 5x7 inch piece of Scor-Tape and remove protective layer. Adhere to red cardstock;
  4. Cut navy cardstock with Lace Die and carefully place over Scor-Tape;
  5. Sprinkle Warm Highlights Micro-fine Glitter over all and tap off excess;
  6. Cut white cardstock with Lace Die. Run ribbon through lace, and adhere over navy lace, offsetting slightly. Trim lace pieces to fit;
  7. Stamp two sizes of flowers and one leaf image with VersaMark on navy cardstock and heat emboss with silver. Trim and shape flowers;
  8. Carefully apply glue to centres of flowers and sprinkle on red Micro-fine Glitter;
  9. Apply small piece of Scor-Tape on front of card and layer rounds of silver thread over tacky spot;
  10. Adhere flowers.
