The card I’m sharing today was made with Stampin’ Up! Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper (DSP), Notes of Nature stamp set, Thoughtful Expressions Dies and Gold Stampin’ Embossing Powder




I started with a piece of Highland Heather cardstock for the base of my card. Then, I added a layer of Fresh Freesia cardstock and Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper. 




I heat embossed my sentiment using the Notes of Nature stamp set and then cut it out using the Thoughtful Expressions Dies. I cut a larger shape out of out Fresh Freesia cardstock and adhered the sentiment to the front. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. 




To complete my card, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside of the card. 




How to Heat Emboss

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing the Embossing Buddy (an anti-static pouch that can be found in the Embossing Additions Tool Kit) over the surface of the paper as it helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder. Stamp your sentiment or image using a Versamark pad. This is very sticky ink and your embossing powder will stick right to it.  Sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped image and then shake off any excess. Before applying heat to your paper, heat the Heat Tool first so your paper won’t warp (about 10 seconds). Direct the heat over your image and watch as your image becomes shiny and beautiful!
