Subtle Embossing by Sarah Jackman Read

WOW Embossing Powders

Hi crafty friends, it's Sarah here with my inspiration card for this month's anything goes challenge. I hope you like it!

1 Cut Kraft card 14.5cm square and run a clear embossing pad along the edges. Sprinkle Metallic Copper embossing powder over the top, tap off the excess and melt with a heat tool. Glue to the front of a 15cm square white card blank.

2 Cut white card 13.5cm square and stamp dandelion clocks from the Make a Wish Stamp Set with a clear embossing pad. Sprinkle with Clear Gloss super Fine powder, tap off the excess and melt with a heat tool.

3 Carefully rub a little turquoise ink over the embossed image gradually building up the colour. Stamp a sentiment in brown ink towards the right hand side and emboss with Metallic Copper powder.

4 Wrap ribbon under the embossed image and attach to the card front. Make a large bow and glue on the right hand side. Cover a wooden button with a clear embossing pad, sprinkle with Coastal Embossing Glitter and tap off the excess. Melt with a heat tool, thread jute through the holes and glue to the centre of the bow.

5 Stamp a butterfly above the sentiment in brown ink. Stamp the same butterfly on turquoise card with a clear embossing pad and sprinkle with Coastal Embossing Glitter. Tap off the excess, melt and repeat the process twice more. Add Metallic Copper powder to the edges, bend into shape and glue on top of the stamped butterfly. Finish with gems on the butterfly and in the corners.
