Offset Heat embossed shadow

How have you been getting on with you Christmas cards this year? I’ve made so many already this year as Catherine Pooler has another fabulous Christmas collection: Nordic Woods. If you love the Nordic style and want to add that into your card making then this is a collection for you! The collection has a beautiful Holly and Pinecone cover plate die, and I’ve added a little offset heat embossing for a Classic elegant Christmas card. So let’s get started!

PRODUCED AS PART OF MY BRAND AMBASSADOR WORK FOR CATHERINE POOLER DESIGNS - SEE END OF POST FOR MORE DETAILS

Offset heat embossed shadow: adding the heat embossing

Start off by die-cutting the Holly Framed Cover Plate die out of white cardstock.  In addition, cut this once more out of any scrap card you have.  With the scrap die-cut, add embossing ink all over by smooshing you WOW! clear ultra slow drying embossing ink down onto the die-cut.

 Cover this with WOW! Metallic Copper embossing powder and heat set. Once heat-set cut the die-cut in half at the middle points on either side and trim off the stitched edge border.  Adhere the heat embossed die-cuts offset to onside behind the complete white die-cut with liquid adhesive. 

Offset heat embossed shadow: creating a matching sentiment

For the sentiment, die-cut the Catherine Pooler ‘Happy Holiday’s die from white card stock 3 times and layer up with liquid adhesive for dimension. Next, add embossing ink to the die-cut and cover the top half with WOW! Metallic Gold embossing powder and the bottom half with WOW! Metallic Copper embossing powder.  You may want to add several layers for a smooth appearance. 

Adhere the cover plate die-cut to a white card base with foam strips for dimension. In addition, adhere the sentiment in the middle of the card. To finish the card off, add a selection of sequins from the Catherine Pooler Oak City sequin mix to embellish the card.
