Hey guys, Crystal here for Color Combos with Crystal. Today we are doing an double embossing layers card with different embossing layers and using colors to make those embossing pop up.
We will use the color combos, yellows and grays, using so saffron, crushed curry and basic gray shades. Feel free to use whatever color you like, this is just what I have on hand.
For our embossing colors, I’m using black and white embossing powder. Then we’re gonna need some foam adhesive along with an embossing pad. And for embellishments, we’re gonna use yellow or gray embellishments to finish it off. And don’t forget, the black and white embossing cardstock.
Let’s get started!
To begin, we’re going to do our first layer of embossing. We’re gonna do it directly on the card base using the smaller set of stars. Cover the stars with white embossing powder. Then, using the heat tool, completely heat set them before we move on to the second layer. Make sure that everything has been set so we won’t have some color mix ups and make sure to allow the cardstock to cool off.
Once it’s cooled off, we’re gonna get the larger stars stamp then cover them with black embossing powder. Make sure to get all the details and then heat set with the heat gun.
While we let our black embossing cool off, we’re gonna stamp the sentiment on to a black embossing cardstock with white embossing powder. Remove the excess so that we don’t get any little flickers then heat set. Then we’re gonna trim the cardstock into a little strip and this is what’s going to be placed over the card base.
Now, we will begin exposing the gorgeous colors form the white heat embossing. We’re going to start with the lightest yellow which is the so saffron, doing a blending form the center and bringing it off to the right. Then, with the darkest yellow, starting on the left then blending in to the light yellow. For the last color, we’re gonna come in with the basic gray and start at the edge and try to blend that in into the yellow.
Next, we’re going put a pre-cut strip of the same black embossing cardstock on the edge using the adhesive foam to clean up the edge blending. Put the sentiment strip slightly over the embossing and blending. And for the finishing touch, we are going to use the yellow jewels. Put in some dots using the glue to know where to put the jewels. Then put those jewels in there.
And that does it! What do you think? Do you like this yellow and gray combination? It can be a very masculine card, you can change the colors or sentiments with these layers of embossing. This embossing card making, sure is fun.
