This first card with a simple Hello is made more textural with not only dry embossing, but a little heat embossing as well. I used dies to cut the sea shells and heat embossed them with a sparkly white embossing powder. I then gently shaped them and adhered them with Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots. Paper layers are adhered using Helmar Premium Craft Glue. Helmar Gemstone Adhesive hold the half pearls securely to the card.
MATERIALS: Digital Image by Make It Crafty, Cardstock by Bazzill and Core’dinations , half pearls by Robin’s Nest , Embossing Powder, Copics Markers for coloring image, Baker’s Twine, Helmar Products , Hello sticker by SRM Press . Cuttlebug Sea Shell die cuts, Spellbinder Circle die cuts, Cuttlebug Embossing folder.
This next card is a birthday card I will send to my father. I thinks it’s masculine, yet mature, even with a flower and butterfly. The paper layers, again, are adhered with Helmar Premium Craft Glue and the gold paper dots are adhered filling the void on back with Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots. I very lightly dusted the back of the scrolls with Helmar Acid Free Glue and the rolled flower is held in place with Helmar 450 Quick Dry.
