how to layer embossing powder: Snowflake stencil

For these cards, we need to first create a full card panel covered in embossing powder. With a brayer, apply a layer of WOW! Embossing ink over the card panel and then cover with Black Twinkle embossing glitter. This will contrast beautifully with the Hope & Positivity powder.

After heat setting the panel, place the Snowflake stencil over the top using the Make Art stay-tion to keep it in place. With a blending sponge tool, apply ink through the stencil. Remove the stencil and cover with Hope & Positivity powder

Trim the panel down and add this to a white card base. Next, stamp a sentiment using the Merry Sentiments stamp set. For this card, I heat embossed the Merry in Hope & Positivity powder and the remaining sentiments in Metallic Silver embossing powder.

The sentiments were trimmed down and foam mounted onto the card. There is no need to embellish the card with all the sparkle and shine from the embossing glitter. 

how to layer embossing powder: Folkart Snowflake

For this card, brayer up a card panel again with embossing ink and then this time cover with Powdered Snow embossing glitter from the Winter Dreams Trio. Once heat-set, position this panel inside a stamping platform such as a MISTI.

Place the Folkart Snowflake stamp over the panel and stamp this in embossing ink. Next, cover with Hope & Positivity powder and heat set.

After heat setting, trim this panel down and add it to a card base. Next, stamp and heat emboss a sentiment from the ‘It’s the Season’ sentiment stamp set in metallic silver.

Trim the sentiments down and then foam mount onto the front of the card. Again, no need to embellish as the embossing glitter does all the shinning!
