Vintage cross adds elegance to cardmaking

This elegant Christmas card is made in just a few easy steps with some fun products from Globecraft & Piccolo. Follow along as I show you how.

Kristie Taylor
Supply list: 
  • G&P Vintage Cross Accents
  • Glastique Matte Finishing Glaze
  • Metallic Gold 3D Enamel Gel 
  • Piccolo Enamel/Embossing Powder Adhesive
  • Gilded Rose Gold Enamel Powder 
  • 24K Gold Enamel Powder
  • Black Foam Adhesive Squares
  • The Paper Temptress cardstock, Midnight Blue glossy, Gold Luster, Creme Laser Luster
  • Sizzix Floral Frame embossing folder
  • Provocraft Script

Give your Piccolo accent a coating of Gold 3D Enamel Gel, then sit it aside and let it dry.

While this is drying build your card, I used several different papers and embossing folders to create the base of my card.

Gently tap the Piccolo Enamel/Embossing Powder Adhesive onto your sentiment stamp and stamp onto a strip of white cardstock.

Sprinkle on Gilded Rose Gold Enamel Embossing Powder embossing and tap off excess. Use a heat tool to set the powder.

To get the edge as you see here, swipe the Piccolo Enamel/Embossing Powder Adhesive around the edge of the cardstock and sprinkle the 24K Gold Enamel Powder; heat set.

Once the Metallic Gold 3D Enamel Gel is dry, you can add the accent to your card with the Glastique Finishing Glaze (yes it works as a paper glue too)!

Give the Vintage Cross Accent a layer of Glastique as well, this gives it a more of a 3D look and also protects it against scratches and chips.

It is so easy to make beautiful projects using the fun products from Globecraft & Piccolo.

Thanks for stopping by and skip over to my blog to see another project using G&P products!
