Heat Embossing August 18, 2014

Here’s the card I finished late last night for the Stretch Your Stamps 2 class.


For this technique, I started with a layer of cardstock and covered it with about 3 or 4 layers of metallic embossing powder.  Then, I added a dark purple and a blue embossing powder for the letters and numbers.  The embossing powder melted to a pretty flat sheen, but it did warp the cardstock.  I straightened it out, but it cracked in a couple places.  I actually like the cracks, so I bent the cardstock backward in a few more places to get it to crack more.  I matted that onto an eggplant cardstock, both cut from Spellbinders dies, and mounted the entire thing onto a card base from DCWV.
