We're So happy For You0
Hello everyone. I hope you're all well.
Today I'm here with you sharing a really simple card featuring some heat embossing. So simple, in fact, I don't have any of my usual progress shots for you so I'll just give you a a brief talk through...
I trimmed my Lilac Smooth 240gsm card down to a UK A6 top fold card blank.
TOP TIP: a UK a4 piece of card cut down the middle lengthways then folded in half is a UK A6. When I make my own card blanks this way, I fold the other half of the card at the same time and pop into into a box so that I have another prepared card blank for the future in the same cardstock.
I took a piece of the Violet Plain 290 GSM card and cut a panel just between 8-10mm smaller round each edge than the card front.
I set about creating my image. I placed my card panel in my stamping platform and placed my stamp on the top half of the card. Once happy with the positioning, I picked it up with my platform lid and stamped onto my card with clear embossing ink. I repeated this several times to get a good impression.
I removed the card carefully and heat set the powder with my heat tool.
I flipped this panel, returned to my platform and repeated the embossing process.
I then stuck this panel down to my card blank using foam tape.
To compete the card, I added a sentiment in the Lilac card, again using the embossing technique and adhered this using foam tape.This was a lovely quick card to make with a great result. It's a great stash filler!
Love, Dani xx
