Gold Embossed Thank-you

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.

No! you can't use a hair dryer. You need a heat tool made for embossing. The temperature from a hair blower isn't hot enough and the fan is too strong and will blow the ink off the page before its set.

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

  • Merry with scattered snowflakes
  • 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.
