Holiday Card Series – Thick embossed snowflake

Card #7 | I’ve often watched some of my favorite stampers cut a die shape and then heat emboss multiple layers of embossing powder to give the die a thicker, more substantial look. I finally decided to try that technique myself and it was really fun!

I took the largest of the snowflake dies from the Snowflake Trio Too set and pressed the cardstock snowflake into my Versamark ink pad, being sure to coat it really well with the embossing ink. I then sprinkled it with silver embossing powder and heat set it with my Milwaukee Heat Tool. I repeated those steps 5 more times to get a nice, thick coating of heat embossed powder on my snowflake.

To make the card, I took a sage card base, using my Corner Chomper in the upper right corner of the card. I then stamped a sweet sentiment from Very Merry in the lower right corner in cherry ink, added the embossed snowflake to my card with Tombow adhesive and then finished off the card with a little bow in sugar polka dot organdy ribbon.

A clean and simple design and a fun technique!
