Gorgeous Gold Embossing - It adds such a classy look to a project.
Are you a fan of heat embossing? For those who haven't done heat embossing the concept is simple. You stamp the image with a "gooey" ink. Then you sprinkle embossing powder onto the wet image and heat emboss. The heating process melts the powder into the paper. The result is the raised embossed image with a shiny finish.
This image was stamped with Encore Metallics ink and embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.
The image on this card is from a set called Seasonally Scattered. This is a really interesting set because the letters themselves are not inked. The image of the word is created by the scattered images behind them. Clear mount $17.95 or Wood mount $24.95

- thanks with scattered leaves and vines
- Love with scattered dots
Oops, I forgot to show you the whole card. Here it is - finished off with some Crumb Cake seam binding and a little bit of Gold Glimmer paper punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch.
The neutral colors and gold glimmer paper give this project a very upscale look, but the gold embossing adds that final level of elegance.
Thanks for stopping by . . . I hope you're inspired to try some heat embossing.
