WOW Embossing

now lets jump over to the card I made for this great Blog Hop!

For the card I used the following items: Catherine pooler inks: Mandarin Spice, Shea Butter, Tiara, Mardi Gras, Its a Boy, Be mine and Pixie Dust.

The stamp set I used is from Pinkfresh Studio and its called „You make a difference“

From WOW! Embossing I used Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder, Metallic Gold Rich Embossing Powder, Embossing Ink, WOW! Embossing Heat Tool.

Last but not least I used the Nesting Oval Dies from Waffleflower.

 

 

I started by stamping the image on a piece of white cardstock with my WOW! Embossing Ink. I used my Misti Stamping Tool of course you can use any other Stamping Tool for this. I sprinkled some Opaque Bright White Embossing powder over it and heat embossed till it was completely melted and shiny. 

After that I started Ink Blending using 7 different Catherine Pooler inks in Rainbow order. Her Inks are super juicy and bright. 

You could also do this in Fall or Winter colors.

I used one of the Waffleflowers Oval Dies that fits right in the middle of the panel, without cutting the stamped image.

For the background I used a piece of white cardstock, where I sprinkled some Gold watercolor so it doesn’t look just plane. After that I chose one of the sentiments from the stamp set and stamped it with WOW! Embossing Ink just right in the middle. I heat embossed the sentiment with Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder.

To finish the card, I added some foam tape on the back of the rainbow panel to give it some dimension and adhere it on the white panel where I heat embossed the sentiment.

And that’s it my crafty friends.

History and meaning behind WCMD
Card Making Day reminds us that the best gifts come from the heart, and the hands and vision of the people we love, so get out there and try making a card of your own! Nowadays, with the advancements in technology and the rise of the Internet, some people have stopped sending cards altogether. Instead, they send email cards. While there is nothing wrong with this, no one can deny that receiving a beautiful card feels a lot nicer. This is especially the case when the other person has gone to the effort of making the card!
To make sure your personalised, handmade card is met with a beam of delight rather than a sigh of regret, here are some mistakes to avoid.
History of Card Making Day
Cards have played an important role in social circles for hundreds of years, playing a role as a thoughtful gift all the way to a necessary part of proper etiquette. Consider, if you will, the calling card of the Victorian era, a term that has become so ubiquitous that the signature element of a bomb-maker or a criminal is said to be their ‘calling card’.
A small piece of paper bearing one’s name and often a decoration of some kind, the calling card (Also known as a visiting card) was presented to the servants of a household that it might be delivered to the masters of the house to announce visitors.
It was this era of propriety that also developed the concept of a dance card, a card specifically carried by women to fill out with the names of the men they intended to dance with that evening. After all, with so many interested parties it just made sense to keep track of them so that you could, in earnest, indicate that your dance card was full and thus politely decline an interested suitor.
Calling Cards, Dance Cards, Business Cards, Greeting Cards, RSVP Cards, there are a million and more types of cards and could there be anything more exciting than learning to make your own? Card Making Day encourages you to do just that.
