CARDS DETAILS

I started with a piece of cardstock, Slate, cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″. Next, I masked 1/4” off on each side using low tack tape and placed it inside my MISTI tool. The tape actually does double duty here – it not only does it mask the edges but also holds the paper in place inside the MISTI. I  heat embossed a Cosmos Blooms background, it’s a new 6×6 cling stamp from Simon. It is a beautiful one for coloring, you have nice large flowers, but it’s also a great one to do these simple heat embossed cards. I am all for simple and quick so this background is simply perfect for the idea I have in mind.

I used Antique Gold embossing powder here. Next, with the masking tape still in place, I ink blended the edges with Sparrow ink. This helped the embossing powder pop even more and it also helped to frame the design. Next, I peeled the tape and adhered this panel onto the A2 white side folding card base.

To create a sentiment I heat embossed “Just Because” from Simon’s new Greetings Mix 1 set in same Antique Gold embossing powder, but on white cardstock this time. Finally, I am used a white Sakura pen to color the flower centers white. I debated doing this, I am always afraid to mess up my cards like this, but I figured why not give it a try. I colored one of the flower centers, I liked it and so I colored the rest. I also used sequins to decorate this card – a few from the Raindrops set and a couple from the Gala set.

    1. Oh the coloured centers look so good. LOVE this card, thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Yana, I saw this on your You Tube Channel & over on SSS. IT IS GORGEOUS! SOOO SOPHISTICATED!! TOTALLY LOVE IT!!! ;)<3

    1. Yana – this card is stunning. I would never have thought of doing this, but you can be sure I will now try something like it on my own! Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Love this card!
      I’m just wondering, do you have to heat emboss the design and then blend ink around the border, or can you blend with ink and then heat emboss? It seems the latter would be easier, but perhaps you need to leave a while for the ink to dry. I’m relatively new to heat embossing, so I’m not sure if it’s possible. Feedback would be much appreciated!

    1. Simple yet elegant. This would be a great idea for mass producing some cards. Thanks, Yana. Hope you’re well.
