As a beginner in cardmaking, I’m exploring something new every time, but heat embossing is completely different from everything else I’ve tried so far.
My heat tool has finally arrived yesterday and I decided to test it right away.
I embossed chrysanthemum on watercolor paper and colored it in several layers. Then I made a gradient wash around the flower and to the top of my panel. When it dried, I outlined my flower on the bottom.
Sentiment and rings are heat embossed on the stripe of dotted vellum.
Rings didn’t turn out crisp as I had an ‘accident’ while heating them… I was holding vellum with tweezers, but it slipped right out and embossing was damaged, so I had to fix it with embossing pen. As it turned out okay and I didn’t have any time to do it again, I left it as it is.
It will be my parent’s wedding anniversary in November, so this card will make a nice and simple gift.
