This embossed velveteen card isn’t a direct CASE, but I did get the idea from a fellow demonstrator, France Martin. Even after watching her do this, I still had my doubts, but now, as the Monkeys sang, “I’m a believer.” The materials I used for this card are: Purple Posy card stock, the velveteen paper, white cardstock, Highland Heather ink, Versamark ink, white embossing powder, the Bloom and Grow stamp set, and the Detailed Trio punch.
Heat Embossed Velveteen How To
To do this well, I recommend using the Stamparatus. I placed my Highland Heather Velveteen paper on the tray and secured the middle with a magnet. Then, I placed the flower sprays on the paper where I wanted them and picked them up with the acrylic panel. Using Versamark, I stamped the images three times before I was confident I had sufficient ink for a good image.
Next, I covered the images with white embossing powder. I took extra care to make sure the stray powder was off the paper, mainly by flicking the back of the paper. Then it was time for the true test. With my heat gun, I melted the powder and got these gorgeous images. And I may have done a happy dance at this point because it’s so cool.
To finish the card, I layered my gorgeous paper on the card base. I cut a 1-1/2″ strip of Purple Posy and White card stock for the sentiment layers. I stamped the sentiment in Highland Heather ink. For a finishing touch, I punched the corners with the Detailed Trio punch.
This elegant card is actually pretty simple. If you haven’t purchased the velveteen paper, get yours before the 2020 catalog retires at the end of the month. Happy crafting!
