Hey, Crafty Friends! As you know, I LOVE a good resist. Since I’ve already shared crayon-rubbing resists and Mod Podge Resists, today I’m going with something more traditional: heat-embossed resist greeting cards!
I love making these- they are so much fun to create the background patterns an then whip up into any kind of card depending on what you need. Artsy but yet still formal!
- Heat embossing supplies: heat tool, embossing ink pad (like Versamark), and embossing powder. (I used White Micro from Piccolo Globecraft.)
- White cardstock for the card base and coordinating solids for the mats. (I used Co’ordinations brand.)
- Gelatos by Faber-Castell (or other watercolor media.)
- Dry adhesive of choice
- Circle paper punch for arc (optional)
- Stamps for sentiments and backgrounds. (I used a background by Tanner Bell Designs.)
- Rhinestones or flat-back crystals/pearls for accents
Of course, it’s so much easier to SHOW you rather than take a million photos and type captions. So here’s a video for you!
That pretty much explains it. Any questions?
