CutCardstock Project: Elegant Heat Embossing

IMG_8781

Hi Everyone!

This is a project I featured over at the CutCardstock blog.  Shimmery elegance is how I would describe the Curious Metallic Cardstock on sale this month over at CutCardstock.  I was drawn to the lovely Blue Print shade and wanted to try a simple look with some white heat embossing to really bring out that vibrant blue.

When I create cards with little embellishment or plain stamping, I like to add another layer that doesn't compete, but adds texture and interest.  I decided to use my favorite embossing folder along with a card base made with Cougar White Super Smooth cardstock.

I cut a panel of the Blue Print cardstock and used a stamp platform to ensure a perfect impression when I stamped my flowers using Versamark Ink.

 I used a bright, opaque white embossing powder to heat emboss the flowers onto the panel.  The Curious Metallic Cardstock heat embosses beautifully!  I also added a small panel for my heat embossed sentiment and popped it up on the panel with some foam tape.  I then added foam tape to the entire panel and added that to my white card base.  I lined it up with the top left corner so some of the dry embossing of the card base could be seen.
