Two Embossing Techniques With Ruth Hamilton

I have used the beautiful Midnight Meadow Silhouette die set as the focal point of this card and used embossing powder in 2 different ways to give it a lovely shiny effect.

I used clear embossing powder over an inked background for the sky and then some silver glitter embossing powder around the edges of the large rectangle to make it pop!

Something magical happens every time the heat gun melts the powder!

Using the 2 dies shown, die cut the fox image from black card.

Step 8

Use the fox die cut as a guide to mark where the moon and stars go, then remove and die cut the moon and stars.

Step 9

Use the rounded rectangle to cut out the silver shape and then the two dies shown to cut out the foliage from black card.

Step 10

Snip off some of the foliage to make more of the shiny sky visible.

Glue the coloured sky piece to the silver card and add the two silhouette panels on top.
