My First Heat Embossed Card


Referring back to the previous post about heat embossing, my new craft obsession, here is the card I made with the heat embossed flowers on an embossed folder panel.

Click on image to see detail and the shine on the flowers.

Nice and simple, great for CAS challenges I think.

I heat embossed the flowers, using a pen with a sponge tip (fantastix - coloring tool brush point by tsukineko), to sponge up the watermark ink and color in the flowers only, then sprinkled with the lavender opaque finish embossing powder. I then sponged up the pen and colored in the leaves with distress ink crushed olive and then sponged the whole panel with distress ink broken china. Then wiped off the access and tada. I love this. The colors work so well together. All in harmony on the color wheel.

I then cut a strip of blue textured paper, stamped on a Best Wishes sentiment (Fiskars - home sweet home) and fussy cut a butterfly (KaiserCraft - hummingbird). I then placed the strip on some pop dots and placed onto the panel and then placed the butterfly on a pop dot for dimension and shadow onto the strip and adhered the whole panel onto a card base of blue texture to match it all in on a vertical card.

i would like to enter this card in the following challenges :-
