I wanted to try something new for this hop so I made a card with a dry embossed marker colored foil background. I had this technique kicking around in my head and couldn't wait to try it with our fun Chevron Embossing Folder. I have a brief How-To for this technique at the end of this post so be sure to scroll to the end.
I colored my Cricut cut words with my Shinhan markers to match the background exactly. Then I added a splash of our retired Pink Glitz Glitter gel to give the heart a little umph. You could also use our Pink Glitter paper to give it some sparkle!
This one is going off to my college girl for her weekly happy mail. I miss her so much and I know she gets a boost each time she gets a bit of love from home in her mail box.
Now hop on over to Haley's wonderful blog to see what she has created for you!
Edited to add colors of markers I used:
Cherry Pink then Tender Pink
Marigold then Leaf Green
Vivid Green then Sap Green
Peacock Green then Turquoise Blue
Lavender then Peony Purple
How To Create Tin Foil Embossed Papers:
1. Cut a sheet of Heavy Duty Tin Foil the size of the piece you want to create. I used Reynolds Wrap Heavy Duty Foil and made a full 12x12" sheet so I could have extra to play around.
2. Using a sheet of plain CS, apply a thin layer of Bonding Memories Glue all over the CS. Be sure to get the edges and corners.
3. Place the foil down on the CS and gently press down to avoid major wrinkles. A brayer might be helpful at this step. Minor wrinkles will disappear with the dry embossing.
4. Trim your pieces to fit your embossing folder and dry emboss. Check your corners and edges and apply a little glue under anything that lifts.
5. Using your Shinhan Touch Twin marker, color your designs in. I found the high relief sections were easier to color than the lower debossed sections.
6. Sit back and admire your fun handiwork and then add it to a project to WOW someone!
