Song of the Sea Card with Dana
Hi! Dana here today sharing a card that features a piece of embossed aluminum today. I feel at home when I'm on the beach, and that was my inspiration for my project. I embossed a piece of aluminum with the Couture Creations Cheerful Embossing Folder, from the Elegance Collection, and added color with Lindy's Stamp Gang Madonna Robe Blue Gold Two-Toned Embossing Powder.
Step One: Add watermark ink directly to the inside of the Cheerful Embossing Folder, slip the piece of aluminum inside the folder and run the folder through an embossing machine. Remove the aluminum from the folder, sprinkle with embossing powder and heat to set. Note: If you are using an aluminum sheet, the metal will become very hot upon heating, so please be careful! Depending on which side of the embossing folder carried the watermark ink, either the embossed or debossed area will be colored.
Here is what my piece of aluminum looked like after embossing.
Step Two: Stamp a sentiment onto a piece of cardstock. Cut the sentiment from the cardstock with the Couture Creations Scalloped Oval Nesting Die. Apply ink to the sentiment using a Sponge Dauber and the metal die as a guide.
Step Three: Select a piece of patterned paper for the card base and randomly apply circles and stars from the Pink Paislee Luxe Rub-Ons Set.
Step Four: Assemble the base of the card. Add some chipboard pieces from the Pink Paislee Luxe Circles Set across the center of the card.
Step Five: Add an image, the stamped sentiment from Step Two and other embellishments to finish the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
