On my last card for the "Heat Wave" class at Online Card Classes I used multiple colours of embossing powder BUT without melting the powders.
Today I am using the same tape sheet technique with the embossing powders, BUT this time I am going to melt the embossing powders completely. As I am also embossing on vellum this card goes for both Day 1 and Day 3 in class :)
I also want this card to be useful for Operation Write Home. Therefore there must not be any glitter which rubs off.
This time I used a much more intricate snowflake die. And look at that gorgeous result!
First I cut a circle of the tape sheet. Taped the circle on an extra thick piece of cardstock. Before moving the top protecting layer from the tape sheet I ran it through my Big Shot with the snowflake die. The point is for the die not to cut completely through the cardstock.
Then I carefully removed the protection sheet from the snowflake part so that only this part of the tape sheet was uncovered. Next up I poured on the teal embossing powder and rub it in with my fingers.
Notice, that I still haven't used the heat gun! After finishing rubbing in the teal embossing powder I then removed the rest of the protection sheet. Now it is possible for me to pour on the holographic embossing powder which surrounds the snowflake. Again I use my fingers to rub it in.
And now it is time to heat up the powder and melt it.
I mentioned in the beginning that I wanted this card to be used for Operation Write Home - the Danish one "Operation Skriv Hjem".
So in order to completely be sure no glitter flakes from the heat embossing could fall off I gave the whole area with the snowflake a second layer of embossing with clear embossing powder. This works as a seal.
The sentiment is Danish and means:
"Sending snowflakes your way
with the wish of a white Christmas".
That's all for today :)
