Creative Use of Embossing Powders with OCC Heat Wave

Day 3 of the Heat Wave online class with Online Card Classes has started off. 

Today Jennifer McGuire introduced the technique of using embossing powders with double sided tape sheet - actually the same technique you can do with glitter powder. 

I decided to combine two dies for my card and on top of that used multiple colours of embossing powders. 

Here is my card for todays's a bit tricky to get good pics of all that glitter shine from the WOW embossing powders. 

 To start off I adhered a piece of double sided tape to a thick piece of card stock.

 As my first die I have used a background die with the wavy look. To make the card more Christmasy I then afterwards layered a snowflake die. The trick is for the dies not to cut all the way through the card stock.

 I then removed the tape sheet topping for the snowflake and poured on the first colour of embossing powder. Giving it a good rub with my fingers to get the powder to stick with the tape sheet. 

 I continued this process bit by bit until the whole piece was covered with 4 different colours of embossing powders. 

In the end I did give it a good rub with my bonefolder. I put a sheet of printer sheet onto and the used the bonefolder to really rub in the embossing powder. 

The sentiment is plainly heat embossed with silver embossing powder. 

I must admit this card took quite a bit of work. But the result is very gorgeous!
