Hello everyone! With the latest Waffle Flower Crafts release it's quite beginning to look a lot like Christmas around my craft room and I just love it. Holiday crafts are my all time favorite! Today I want to share a Christmas card I made using Riverside, Starry Night, and A Homemade Christmas stamp sets, Riverside die set, and also a custom sentiment stamped with Be My Guest stamp set.
In this card I've combined my love for all things Christmas with my obsession love for heat embossing. The magic that happens when that powder melts still gets me every single time :)
Look at all that shiny happy images!!! Almost everything on this card was heat embossed.
I started with a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 cardstock panel. When I'm gonna be heat embossing a lot I know warping is gonna happen, so I work on a separate piece of cardstock and then adhere it to the front of the card for a perfectly flat finished card.
First, I stamped a starry sky using the tiny constelation images on Starry Night. There are three separate constelation images on the set, so I mounted them all on the same clear block and the background was stamped in no time. I heat embossed them in silver.
The sentiment comes next. Once again, I went to the Be My Guest set for the perfect custom sentiment for my card and heat embossed it in white.
Now, for the little scene: I adhered double sided adhesive tape to a piece of cardstock and die cut the river/path from Riverside die set. Once I had my path, I removed the adhesive tape backing and covered the die cut in glitter.
The trees were also die cut from the Riverside dies. Then, I stamped them with the coordinating images in Riverside stamp set and heat embossed with holographic green and brown powders. These were the first heat embossing powders I purchased when I started stamping 6 years ago and they still work perfectly!!! Can you believe it???
Finally, I stamped, red-heat embossed and fussy cut the little house from A Homemade Christmas, and adhered it with foam tape. Oh, I also added a subtle hint of smoke coming out of the chimney by just scribbling lightly with a white pencil.
I hope I inspired you to get messy with heat embossing! Thanks for stopping by!
