AECP: Progressive Cardmaking

Today I am here with a work based on my latest Altenew Academy class – Progressive Cardmaking with Justine Hovey . I am inculcating 2 of her techniques for my card. The washi tape technique for the background and the Embossing technique for the Sentiment. Trust me, this is one of the most simple and elegant card you can make.


  1. Create a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” card base from Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. 
  2. Stick Gold Splatter Cosmic Berry Wide Washi Tape over it
  3. Take a piece of Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock, place Eid Mubarak Die over it and run it through the die cutting machine.
  4. Brush the die cut image with antistatic powder tool.
  5. Apply the embossing ink over the top and Cover it with the embossing powder and heat emboss it with a heat gun.
  6. Stick it to the center of the card using double sided foam tape


  • Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder
  • Eid Mubarak Die
  • Anti static powder tool
  • Heat Gun
  • Double sided foam tape.
  • VersaMark Watermark stamp pad
  • Gold Splatter Cosmic Berry Wide Washi Tape
  • Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock.
  • Sizzix big shot die cutting machine 


  • Use anti-static powder tool to prevent embossing powder from sticking to unwanted areas while we stamp the image with Versamark 
  • Point the heat gun straight down to the paper without a slanted angle this way the onset embossing powder will not be blown away leaving you with a sloshy embossed image
  • Add extra layers of embossing powder and melt after each layer to get a smooth look.
  • Touch it only after few minutes after heating the die cut sentiment or else you can get your finger prints get melted into it .
  • Wrap the tape around the paper for extra strength and to ensure that the washi stays in place over time.

Thank You!

Hope you liked my card. Have a wonderful day and I hope to see you all soon with another project from AECP. Until then happy stamping and thanks for stopping by!
