add metallics to embossing folders

add metallics to embossing folders: metallic cardstock

This first card is the easiest out of the three as it used some metallic cardstock to add your metallic element. Cut strips of rose gold satin mirror card into 3/4 in of inch by 5.5 inches. Next, adhere these down evenly spaced onto a black card panel. 

add metallics to embossing folders

Run this striped panel through an embossing folder using the new Linked Ovals 3D Embossing folder. This will add a lovely texture to the panel whilst still having the extra striped design you have created. 

To finish this card off, die-cut the sentiment ‘Thank you’ using dies from the All About You and All About Thanks die set. Lastly, add some black enamel dots to complete the card. 

add metallics to embossing folders: heat embossing

This second card uses embossing powder to add a metallic look to the embossing folder design. Add embossing ink to the flat side of the Winter Foliage embossing folder by dragging the pad over the top. 

Add a black card panel to your embossing folder and run this through your die-cutting machine. Next, cover your card panel with Copper embossing powder and heat set. The raised areas of the embossing folder design will not have any embossing powder on them

To finish this card, add a stamped sentiment from the Festive Foliage stamp set and add a few black enamel dots scattered around the card. 

add metallics to embossing folders: embellshment mousse /gilding

This last technique is the most advanced out of the three but I think the card looks stunning. Add a black card panel to the Classic Pinecones Slim 3D embossing folder and run this through your die-cutting machine. 

Next, with a blending tool and foam sponge we are going to add a metallic look by gilding the raised areas. Apply a light coverage Poppy Pink embellishment mousse over the pinecones and leaves, only applying pressure to cover these and not the background. 

For a little more definition, go in and apply French Pink over the pine cones to add some shading. Trim this down and add to a slimline card base and finish with a stamped sentiment from the Festive Foliage stamp set
