Making Your own Epoxy Letters

Epoxy letters look slick - literally and figuratively.  You can easily make your own with a little glossy accents.

This is a great way to add a little zing to your cardstock, too.  Cut letters from cardstock or pattern paper as thin as you like and then add a layer of Glossy Accents (or Stampin' Up! Crystal Effects) for the epoxy look.  You get whatever color and size you want in professional look.

The technique also works with regular stickers to give them a bit of lift.

Here's the process video:

I mentioned this is a trick to enhance cardstock. There are tons of tricks for using your cardstock in the Creative Cardstock class.  When I published this self-paced class last fall, I listed the introductory price at $15.  That price is about to expire.  It will be available for $15 through June 27.  Then the price increases to $20.

Click HERE for more details and there is a link on the sidebar for purchase at the $15 price.  10 lessons with videos, sketches and tons of tips.  Once purchased, you can complete the class at your own pace.

Thanks for stopping by today!
