A Blog Named Hero Challenge + WOW! Embossing Powder
This card took me a couple of tries before I found something that worked! I started with a piece of 80# Neenah white cardstock measuring 4.25 x 5.5 inches. I used the Spellbinders embossing mat and the Hero Art’s Butterfly Confetti Fancy die and embossed the impression into the paper using my Big Shot. I also used the die to cut out the image from a piece of InkaDinkaDo masking paper. I adhered the masking paper (after I cut it) over the dry embossed image so that the background was covered. After that I applied my VersaMark ink to the entire image and then applied red glitz WOW! embossing powder to the entire image. Before setting it with my gun, I removed the masking paper.
I adhered the butterfly piece to a top folding white card measuring 4.25 x 5.5 inches.
I decided to frame the image with a black frame that I made myself with a piece of black cardstock, my Penblade and a ruler. I applied the frame to the card with some foam tape.
I chose the Hello die from the Hero Art’s Hello Stamp and Cut set for my sentiment. I cut the Hello out of 4 pieces of black cardstock and glued them together for added dimension since my frame was also standing out. I cut two different sized hearts from the Hero Art’s Nesting Heart dies set out of vellum. I glued the Hello onto the smaller vellum heart with Ranger multi medium adhesive and then glued the smaller heart onto the bigger heart with adhesive underneath the Hello word so that it wouldn’t show through the vellum. I added the sentiment Consider This A Hug (from the Hero Art’s You Are Loved Messages Stamp Set) underneath the Hello with VersaMark ink and the same red glitz embossing powder.
I glued the hearts down with the same adhesive (underneath the words) and added some Pretty Pink Posh clear confetti mix to the card to finish it off.
