Hi Everyone, Anet here today and welcome to my inspiration post. Christmas is just around the corner and I made a Christmas Card using an embossing technique that takes the embossed cardstock to a next level. I used the NEW Elegance Collection from Couture Creations.
Follow my video tutorial below to learn how to foil with the Elegance Sending Love Hotfoil Stamp.
Step by Step Instructions:
Ink-Blending With Embossing Folder Technique
I first trimmed Garnet Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″ and score it at 5 1/2″ to create the card base. I then cut white cardstock twice to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhered one of them onto the inside of the card. I foiled with the Elegance Sending Love Hotfoil Stamp using white cardstock, Gold Vintage Matt Finish Heat Activated Foil and the GoPress and Foil Machine.
Following on from this I stamped a Christmas Sentiment, heat embossed it and layered it onto the card front. I then cut Smooth White Cardstock to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and embossed it with the Elegance Framed Bouquet DL Embossing Folder. To take the embossed cardstock to the next level I inked it using Christmas Green Pigment Ink with the Blending Brush. Die-cut the inked embossed cardstock with the Circle Die and adhered it onto the card front using 3D foam dots. Stamp the Elegance Aster Mini Layering Stamp onto Smooth White Cardstock using the Card Deco Essentials Christmas Red Pigment Ink and die-cut it with the Elegance Aster Die. I added it onto the card front using 3D foam dots. To finish, die-cut Mirror Board Matte Gold Lines Cardstock with the Elegance You Are Adorable Leaf Dies and added it to the cluster of stamped flowers.
