Dazzling Diamonds Napkin Technique

Hello there,
Today I have a Technique to share with you on how to put together a,
 'In a Hurry' Greetings Card!

How many times have you needed to send a greetings card out in a hurry but don't have the time to spare to make a Wow card, well I think you might just like this idea!

Napkins come in so many different designs and colours and can be used to make wonderfully quick cards! No need to get out your stamps and inks for this one!

So, here is what you will need to make this type of card!

* Napkin
* Card base & Card -Stock for layering
* Double Sided Adhesive Sheet & a piece of Card the same size!
* VersaMark
* Heat & Stick Powder
* Dazzling Diamonds
*Snail Adhesive / Tombo Glue
* Framelits to Die Cut your Napkin (If you want a different shape)& Die Cut machine
* Heat Gun
* Sentiment Stamp Set & Ink  if needed

What to do!
(Check out my Me to You  Video Crafting Tip 39)!
Cut the adhesive sheet, card stock & napkin to the size you need! 

The napkin will be made up of three layers, take away the 2 plain layers! Hold on to these as they will come in useful of cleaning up spill, cleaning your clear block, cleaning your hands etc!

Take the adhesive sheet and remove the top protective layer and attach it to the card stock. Then take off the other protective layer and lay the napkin on top, smoothing it out on the card!

Use the VersaMark pad to lay down the ink all over the napkin!

Sprinkle the heat and stick powder all over the napkin, taking off the excess powder,then use your heat gun to melt the powder!

Once the powder has all melted (the napkin image will look vibrant) sprinkle Dazzling Diamonds over the napkin! Again take off any excess!

Take your heat gun again to the napkin to reheat the powders! The DD will start to shimmer slightly when you do this!

Put your napkin to one side and get your card base ready, stamp out a sentiment!

Your napkin should be cool by now so if you want to, you can put it through your die cut machine or just trim the napkin down to size!

Attach it to your card base, add the sentiment and you have a card ready to send!

As the adhesive sheets come in a 12"x12" size, and some napkins fold out to the same size you could make a batch of cards in one go! 
Just cut the finished napkin to the sizes you require!
