Hi, Connie here with a really fun and cool project to create an embossed background for a mixed media style card. Using the leftover sheet from the 3D Foam Circles White Mix, WOW! Embossing Powder and stamps, I show how to make these wonderful cards.
Embossed Background Steps
- There were still some 3D Foam Circles White Mix on the sheets so I remove them by placing them on an empty liner sheet and set aside.
- Remove the top liner of the leftover sheet and cover the entire surface with the WOW! embossing powder.
- Shake off excess and emboss with a heat embossing tool.
- Next, emboss three 3D Foam Circles in the regular size using the same embossing powder.
Stamp sea shell and leaf images with colored inks. Then emboss with WOW! Embossing Powder in clear. I also used their embossing pen to touch up my stamped images that did not stamp clean. Set aside. Let’s work on the card layers.
Using various Distress Oxide ink colors that would match the embossed background, I created a mixed media card panel. When I achieved my desired look, peel off the back liner of the embossing background, and adhere to the inked card panel.
- 5. Adhere the layered card panel to the Kraft card panel with the Crafty Foam Tape 108ft.
- 6. Add the sea shells images and adhere to the card front with 3D Foam Circles White Mix.
- 7. The larger sea shells images were adhered using the Extreme Double -Sided 1/4″ Tape for a stronger hold. Randomly add the embossed 3D Foam Circles on the card front. Wrap Twine around the bottom.
- 8. Lastly, the layered card panel and sentiment were adhered to the folded card base using E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser.
Designer’s Tip: use the leftover sheets as a dimensional adhesive. No one will know and no need to throw it away. Use every little bit – a no waste product! LOL!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this project. I sure enjoyed creating the cards!!
