Welcome to a new post featuring a fancy card made with the Mini Evolution Party Kit! The Mini Evolution is a small die-cutting machine–and it’s CUTE too! It’s perfect for cutting small embellishments from dies, and also for adding embossed details. The Party Kit includes stamps, dies, and an embossing folder. In addition, the kit comes with a stamp press–which makes layered stamping really easy and fun! So you can start right away to create special party cards–like invitations, thank you cards, and many more.
I created a ‘Thank you’ card with an embossed background element. The stamp press came in really handy to create a layered stamped sentiment with balloons in different colors. Can you spot the embossed details on the card? This is such an AWESOME detail!
How to: First, grab one of the pre-cut cardstock sheets from the kit. Second, place the first layered balloon stamp into the stamp press. Third, put stamp ink onto the stamp and press down onto the cardstock sheet. Fourth, take the second stamp plate, put ink onto the stamp, and press down onto the cardstock sheet. And the stamping is all done!
Fifth, now it’s time to die-cut the balloon sentiment. Grab your cutting plates B and E. Place the cardstock sheet with the stamped balloon sentiment into the coordinating die-cutting and embossing folder. Next, place the folder between plates B and E. And Use the Mini Evolution to die-cut and emboss.
Sixth, now it’s time to create the embossed background. Cut a sheet of patterned paper to size 3×5″. Place the paper into the embossing folder (shown in the lower right corner in the photo above). And then use the Mini Evolution to emboss the patterned paper.
Last but not least, attach the sentiment and the embossed patterned paper onto the card with foam pads. And you’re done already!
