Gold Doily Card

Hello friends,

I fell in love with heat embossing when I saw few calligraphy folks using it in their posts on Instagram. And there.. I got stuck in the trap of all that melts!

I wanted to try heat embossing on my doily stamp set. To tell you the truth, doily isn't really a great pattern to emboss because it's too intricate! Anyways, I had made my own static powder tool which I wanted to  try and see if it helps.

I wanted the sentiment to be the focal point as in the muse , I used a masking tape to make a window for my sentiment, which is different words of different sets put together and also a little handlettering as few words weren't available as stamps. Around the sentiment I put my doily stamp and heat embossed with the gold EP. And tadaaa.. the Gold laden card, one layer card..  for a friend who's like a little sister to me.. Celebrating Birthday and friendship. Our Friendship is precious than Gold.

The part I loved the most is that.. some embossing powder from the 'Happy' got sprinkled on the 'Birthday', giving a cool effect.


     Hope you liked this

  2. This looks lovely - I love the shimmer and I think the doilies embossed perfectly well, but there are super-fine embossing powders made specifically for intricate stamps - sounds like you've been bitten by the embossing bug for sure - it's the thing that makes everyone say 'wow!' So glad you joined us at Muse this week!
