Easy Heat Embossed Birthday Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a beautiful card for you! It’s an easy heat embossed birthday card that will WOW your friends and family. I created this with the Artfully Composed Suite. Yes, the same stamp set and dies that I just announced a New Class with.

This stunning beauty was done in Evening Evergreen (one of our in colors) and embossed in Gold. I took the basic card base cut at 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ the scored and folded at 4-1/4″ and stamped the front of it with the leaves using the Evening Evergreen ink. I love color on color as it adds a nice richness to the card, and gives it dimension by just stamping.

Next, I used the VersaMark ink to stamp the leaves all over the Evening Evergreen front (5″ x 3-3/4″) and then covered it with Gold Embossing powder, tapped off the excess and heat embossed until it was a beautiful, shiny gold!!

Once embossed, I layered it onto a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Gold Foil paper. I usually cut out leaves or the mat for my greeting out of the center of the gold as not to waste any (can’t see that part anyway!!

Then I stamped my greeting in Evening Evergreen on a piece of scrap and then cut it out. You can use dies or punches if you prefer. I layered it with a piece of Evening Evergreen and cut to match and then popped it up using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish off the card, I added some of the beautiful Gold dots from the Brushed Metallic Dots. I appreciate you stopping by my blog!

I hope I inspired you to pull out your heat gun again and do some embossing, or better yet … join my class on June 16th (Find Details Here) and discover all you can do with this amazing suite of products. Today we just touched the surface with our Easy Heat Embossed Birthday Card!
