Add intensity with emboss resist – Hero arts

Christmas cards do not need to be complicated. Simple quick stamping and heat embossing can add that next quality to your Christmas cards in minutes. Add intensity with emboss resist and you’ve stepped up your card to the next level. Here I’ve used on a simple stamp set from Hero Arts, taking the Holiday Borders and Icons stamps and repeatedly stamping it to get your own fun background. So let’s get started!

written tutorial

add intensity with emboss resist

Start by adhering the four small picture stamps from the Holiday Borders and Icons stamp set onto an acrylic block in one long line. Prep some Cranberry Hero Hues cardstock with anti-static powder and repeatedly stamp the icons in embossing ink, moving the acrylic block for variation as you move up the card.

Next, cover the inked background with WOW! gold rich pale embossing powder and heat set. Using a blending brush, ink blend Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide to the edges of the card, softly blending slightly in towards the middle. Repeat this by adding Black Soot Distress Oxide to the edge to add more intensity.

Trim the back down, to add a 1/8 inch border around the edge foam mount onto a card base made out of Cranberry Hero Hues cardstock. Heat emboss a sentiment in gold embossing powder onto a white card from the Holiday Borders and Icons stamp set. Trim the sentiments down and add them to the front of the card.

Lastly, to finish the card off, embellish the card with Ivory Opal Gems to mimic falling snow.
