Stampin’ Up!’s Abundant Beauty Decorative Masks have been sitting in my unopened and unused pile for a couple of months now. Does that happen to you? Today, I share a fun technique using one of the masks in conjunction with the Cheers to the Season stamp set. Find both of them in Stampin’ Up!’s September-December 2023 Mini Catalog.
Cheers to the Season Fall Card
I tried something a little different with the leaf design from the Abundant Beauty Decorative Mask collection. Be sure to watch the video below to see step-by-step instructions for creating this card. It’s a new-to-me heat embossing technique.
- Cherry Cobbler card stock measuring 5 1/4 x 1 13/4 lightly taped to the back of the leaf design mask. (Rub card stock with embossing buddy before taping.)
- Liberally apply Versamark ink on top of mask, ensuring you have good ink coverage.
- Remove card stock from mask. Cover with gold embossing folder, tapping off the excess.
- Heat with heat tool, heating all surfaces.
- Add to a piece of Very Vanilla card stock measuring 5 1/4 x 4 embossed with a folder from the Basics 3D Embossing Folders. Add a strip (1/4 x 5 1/4) of Gold Foil adjacent to the embossed piece.
- On a Very Vanilla square die cut with the largest square from the Stylish Shapes Dies, stamp the leaf image from Cheers to the Season in Cherry Cobbler ink.
- Pop up on card front with dimensionals.
- Add gold Simply Elegant Trim and gold sequins from the Neutrals Adhesive-Backed Sequins.
- Card base is Cherry Cobbler cut a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
I think this is a super fun heat embossing technique that adds a lot to the card. It also give you another way to use the decorative mask. I look forward to trying it with the snowflake mask in that collection.
