DIY Flocked Cardstock Card - Couture Creations


Hi! I'm sharing how to make your own flocked cardstock with an embossing folder and flocking powder for Couture Creations today.  The raised areas of the embossed cardstock provides a flat surface that is ideal for adding flock.


Step One: Emboss a piece of cardstock with a favorite Couture Creations embossing folder.  I used the Couture Creations Hepburn Embossing Folder from the Elegance Collection.


Step Two: Choose several colors of flocking powder.  Use a glue pad, craft glue or a double-sided adhesive to apply the flocking powder to the cardstock.


Step Three: Pour the flocking over the cardstock, pat down using a scrap piece of paper, and shake of the excess.  Repeat for the remaining colors of flock.


Step Four: Use a heat tool to set the flock for a more permanent finish.  Trim the excess cardstock from the flocked design.


Step Five: Mount the flocked cardstock onto a card base and embellish to finish.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
