I recently rediscovered this marbling technique that I did it many years ago and, like so many things, it has come back in style. I marbled Whisper White Thick card stock, then cut it using the Flourish Thinlits. The Happy Birthday sentiment is stamped onto another piece of the marbled card stock with the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

Here’s a how-to video on the marbling technique:

Stampin’ Up’s very own Donna Griffith shows how to create marbled card stock.

Here’s how my first few pieces turned out:

I used Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, and Daffodil Delight re-inkers. I swirled it around more after each piece, so they all look different. You can see how the colors are starting to blend together a little on the last one I did, at far right, which is the piece I used for today’s card. I did the center one first.

It isn’t very pretty in this photo, but scroll down to see how nice it looks on today’s card.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Dapper Denim card stock (CS) to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • small piece of the marbled CS to fit the sentiment
  • small piece of Melon Mambo card sock just a tad bigger than the marbled piece
  • Whisper White CS to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card

Stamped with the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set:

  • sentiment in Dapper Denim ink onto the small piece of marbled CS

Die cut using the Flourish Thinlits:

  • marbled CS with the largest flourish die

Assembled the card:

  • glued Whisper White CS to inside of card base
  • marbled flourish glued onto front of the card base
  • sentiment glued onto the Melon Mambo CS
  • Melon Mambo CS adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Pacific Point enamel dots applied to the sentiment
  • NOTE: because this card is for a member of my team, the Candy Hearts, I applied a Melon Mambo enamel heart to the card front.
