Faux "Wax" Seal Gift Card Holder

Stephanie has a quick idea to share with us!
She always wanted to get a wax seal but all those supplies can get pretty expensive,
So she did some research and found out that you can use embossing powder and rubber stamps
to achieve the same effect!
How awesome is that?!

Die cut the kraft paper for the envelope and stamp with text stamp from the Correspondence, Pen, Ink and Postage set. 


She used Antique Linen Distress Ink just to give the paper the illusion of texture.








Add a small puddle of glue to the sealed envelope. Sprinkle embossing powder on the glue puddle. She used Emerald Creek Charred Gold. Heat the embossing powder and while it is still liquid add more powder until you have the desired amount.


 Press the stamp into the molten embossing powder and let cool.
 Lift stamp up and voila you have your wax seal!


She added a little ink to the edge of the envelope to finished the project. If you enjoyed this quick and easy tip just follow the links below for more inspiration.
