AECP Level 2: Impressive Heat Embossing Techniques

Happy Day fellow card makers, and crafters alike! I'm so happy to be here with you this afternoon. I'm posting another submission for my Altenew AECP class, and this will mark the half-way point through Level 2. I am super EXCITED, and cannot wait to be certified! Today's card features a two-toned heat embossed butterfly on a card panel with ink blending and a die cut sentiment.

Svetlana Marchenko offers a ton of different embossing techniques, and making an image using several colors of embossing powder really caught my eye, and I had to try it. I am using Altenew Dove Tail Stamp Set today, however, any solid stamp will work for this technique!

Card Instructions

  • I cut a card panel using white cardstock 4"x 5 1/4" and used my anti-static tool to prepare the card panel for heat.

  • I stamped the solid butterfly image with VersaMark Ink, and applied my first color of embossing powder

  • Next, I used the Altenew Reflections Die and used it as a stencil to lay some blue ink down on the background.

  • I used my black gel pen and added the antenna on the butterfly.

  • Add any sentiment you would like, and you're done! Sweet & Simple.

  • Use foam adhesive tape to adhere the card panel to add some dimension to the card.

  • I also added blue sequin for the finishing touch.

 
 

Tips & Tricks

  • Prepare your card panel with anti static powder or cornstarch prior to heat embossing.

  • When applying your embossing powder, hold the card panel down and use a spoon to apply the powder.
