Today I have two card projects which use heat embossed pieces to create a mandala and also takes the leftovers and to create a shaker card! This is a great way to use tiny heat embossed bits, by creating geometric patterns on a card or using as shaker filler.
I created a video showing you how to create cards, which you can see over on the WOW! Embossing YouTube channel.
My first card features the Altenew Mandala Maker. I used the coordinating dies to die cut pieces and create a mandala on a card. I first chose my embossing powders, heat embossed pieces of WOW! cardstock and then die cut them.
The colors I used are the newly released Sweet Scoops Trio (all three colors), Sparkling Sand from the Dockside Trio, and Iced Silver. I used the Mandala Maker stamp set to stamp the placement dots using pale ink onto a panel of white cardstock, then used glue and a jewel picker to place all the pieces, creating a mandala!
I finished the card with a simple stamped sentiment in black ink - from the Better Together 2 stamp set then mounted it onto a card base.
I had lots of pieces left over so decided to create a shaker card. I grabbed another panel of white cardstock and die cut it with the Altenew Fine Frames Square die set in the centre. I backed it with acetate then added a double layer of foam tape around the opening, and the rest of the panel.
I took the pieces left over from the Mandala Maker and added them into the square well, making sure all the embossing sides were facing the front of the card. I then backed it with more white cardstock and added to a white notecard.
I finished the card again with a sentiment stamped in black from the Better Together 2 stamp set.
You don't need a special stamp and die set to get this look - choose any small dies to create the shaker bits and form a mandala!
