Hello everyone and a very warm welcome to Bev at Happy Dance, who is a new follower this week. I hope you find something to interest you here.
We've reached Day 7 at the Summer Card Camp and today was all about heat embossing. Amber showed a way to do a kind of ombre embossing and I thought I'd have a go using template one and the colours for this week, (cream, brown, 2 shades of green) but adding a splash of red instead of the blue because I wanted to make a Christmas card. I used my Cameo to make a 5.5 inch circle card, and then cut a smaller circle in a gorgeous brown patterned paper that has a lovely glow to it, and I inked the edges with distress inks before applying it to the card.
I then cut out a wreath shape that I got from the Silhouette Store, plus lots of little fern shapes in two shades of green, which I then built up into an evergreen wreath. I punched a few red circles for berries to dot around. Amber used different shades of embossing powder on her card but as I only have white and clear embossing powder, I had to improvise. I wanted to stamp the sentiment on vellum so I used versamark ink first, then added kraft coloured ink, and finally added dark brown ink, then stamped and quickly added the clear embossing powder and heated from below so I didn't scorch the vellum.
I'm going to enter this card into Sparkle Creations challenge to use embossing.
Thanks for stopping by.
