Heat Embossing | Traditional China 20th Wedding Anniversary Card feat. Brutus Monroe


Hi there everyone, it’s Rianna here from
RiCre8s but you can call me Ri. Welcome to my channel! Today I will be showing you how I made this
Traditional China themed card that I made for my Aunty and Uncle’s 20th Wedding Anniversary
with the endorsement of Arts and Crafts Supplies Online Australia. I’m starting off by using an EK Success
Powder Tool on some Neenah Solar White 80lb card as I want to do some heat embossing
today and the powder tool makes sure to get rid of any static so that the embossing powder
will only stick to the stamped image. I’m using Versamark ink with a Brutus Monroe
stamp from the set called Rose Border. Then using some Wow! Embossing Powder in the
colour Opaque Bright White. And then using my heat gun to set the embossing powder. I’m then repeating the powder tool, stamping
and heat embossing. I’m now using a makeup brush with some Tim
Holtz Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink to colour the background. I’ve used a piece of tissue
to stop my fingerprints getting onto the card and then I used some more tissues to gently
wipe off the Distress Ink from the heat embossed images to show the white. Don’t you just hate when you can’t get
the tiny alphabet stamps to stay in the one place? I know I do, so that’s why I am letting
you know this stamping “tip” or “hack”. I’ve used some painters tape with the sticky
side facing up which is what the alphabet stamps will be sticking to and I have used
two smaller pieces of the same tape to hold the longer piece of tape into place. I’m using Versafine Onyx Black ink on to
some white card stock to stamp out the “Happy 20th Wedding Anniversary” sentiment.
(Lawn Fawn’s Harold’s ABCs stamp set) I’ve trimmed the card front and then die
cut the sentiment with a My Favorite Things die which I believe is now retired. The sentiment looked like it was blending
in to the card front which I didn’t like so I decided to make a border around the sentiment
with the same white card stock and used the 1/8th of an inch side of my Perfect Layers
ruler. I used a tape runner to hold the sentiment into place then used a craft knife to trim
each side. I did a bad job at the cutting with a craft
knife so I had to use my Tim Holtz trimmer to neaten up the edges. I’m using some Scotch 3D foam tape to pop
up the sentiment onto the white border so that it’ll give the sentiment piece some
dimension. The card base was originally going to be 5
and a 1/2 inch by 4 and a 1/4 inch but I ended up making the card base the same size
as the card front. I used some half inch Scor Pal tape to adhere
the card front to the card base as well as the sentiment to the card front. Another cardmaking “tip” or “hack”
is to use some repositionable tape to adhere the card so that you can add things to the
front of your card without having to hold the card down. You then just need to open
the card gently and then use an adhesive eraser to remove the tape and then the card is complete. For the measurements of the card front, card
base, sentiment and sentiment border I’ll pop that down in the description box below.
