Embossing at Cute Card Thursday

Hello friends!  It’s time for another Cute Card Thursday challenge this week!  We would like to see some “embossing” on your creations this week!  You can make it heat embossed, dry embossed or I would say embossing paste would work too!  Or you could challenge yourself and try to combine more than one kind!  🙂

We are sponsored  this week by All Dressed Up Stamps, so be sure to enter the gallery for your chance to win a prize!!  Here’s what I’ve created for this week’s challenge:


This is such a cute and fun image!    I thought it would make a really fun “New Year’s” type of card, so I created with that in mind.  This image from All Dressed Up is called Season to Sparkle.  I colored her up with Copic markers and then used a gold el pen to color in her crown.  I’ve also taken the Spectrum Noir clear glitter brush pen and colored her dress with it.  The sparkle on her wings are liquid glue and loose glitter.

I’ve cut the image out with a Zig Zag circle die and then layered a piece of gold mirror cardstock cut with a circle behind it.  I attached the circle image panel over a dry embossed black card front panel that I’ve also wrapped some gold ribbon around and attached the bow to the front.

I also heat embossed the sentiment with some gold EP and cut out a banner strip to pop up over the circle image panel.  I cut the tail end to match the card front.  This card front panel was layered onto an A2 sized white top folding card base.


Here I wanted to show you a closer look at the image panel and the close up details of the frantage embossing powder over it.  (This is such a fun embossing powder to play with!  You have to heat it up from underneath.)  You can also see the gold embossed sentiment too.  I did take some gold tinsel Stickles and added a few drops around the image for more sparkle.


I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today!  Please be sure to stop by the Cute Card Thursday challenge blog to see the inspiration from the rest of the design team and hope you can play along with us this week!!  Looking forward to see your embossed makes!!
