Hi everyone, Terri here today to share a card I made using 2 of my favourite crafting themes geometric shapes and metallic heat embossing.
Why do I love these so much? Well I guess it because of the versatility, especially of the geometric shapes. They can be used in so many way, you can build backgrounds, patterns or make them the prominent image on your project. They can also be used for multiple occasions and span the ages.
As for metallic heat embossing, I just love the magic involved. Watching a dull powder melt into a shiny embellishment or sentiment when heated never fails to make me smile. I love adding metallic elements to my project and you are sure to see lots in my project.
Now onto my project, I wanted to create a congratulations card with no specific event in mind, I always like to have a little stock pile of cards ready for last minute occasions.
Embossing powder in Silver and Copper
- Working on a 4.25” x 5.5” piece of white card I started stamping some of the triangles from the Shape your world stamp set, I stamped in Versafine ink and heat embossed with Copper embossing powder.
- I then used the dotted line stamp from the Block sentiments stamp set to add some silver heat embossed areas. I’ve only recently started using more than one metallic colour on a project as I was always afraid that it would look too much, but I think if you balance the design with white space it works really well.
- Lastly, I heat embossed the Congratulations sentiment from the Block sentiments set and fussy cut it before adding it to my stamped panel using foam pads.
I hope you’ve enjoyed todays post, please come back tomorrow for more inspiration from my fellow DT members.
