Multiple Colours of Embossing Powders

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 :)
