Heat embossing behind die-cuts

Creating the die-cut panel

To start off, position the Picket Fence Studios Leave Negative Die in one corner of a piece of Adriatic Hero Hues cardstock and run this through your die-cutting machine. Repeat this with the die in the other corner of the cardstock.  

For a little more interest, use your blending brushes to blend Day Dream Catherine Pooler Ink onto the edge of the card, softening it up as your move inwards. For more depth, add Juniper Mist Catherine Pooler Ink with the blending brushes just around the edge. 

creating the Heat embossing behind die-cuts

To add the heat embossing behind the die-cut, trim down a piece of scrap card to the same size as the card panel. Next, using the ink to paper technique, directly smoosh your WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying embossing ink onto the card. Once heavenly saturated, cover with WOW! Weathered Gold embossing powder from the Seth Apter Trio Metalz.

Next, using speed two on your dual speed heat gun, heat set the powder. A tip for heat embossing is to do it from beneath, this will take a little longer but you’re less likely to overheat emboss the panel. To adhere to the die-cut panel, add 3D foam pads on the back of the die-cut panel and had down. This will add a little more depth and dimension the panel. 

Creating the sentiment

To create the sentiment, heat emboss using your WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying embossing powder to stamp the Happy Happy Happy Birthday stamp from Picket Fence Studios onto vellum. Cover this with Weathered Gold embossing powder to die in with the background and heat set. 

To add the adhesive to the vellum, run this through a Xyron sticker maker machine. Now, I adhere this down onto another sheet of vellum to increase the opacity of the vellum to help it stand out from the background. Fussy cut the sentiment out and run through your Xyron machine once more. 

To finish the card off, adhere the vellum sentiment onto the front of the card. Lastly, add a few Sequins from the Alatinc Sequin Mix from Lucy’s cards.
