Shadow Embossing

Sadly I’ve had a need for a lot of sympathy cards lately and wanted to find something simple that I could mass produce.  Watching Dawnsstampingthoughts.net she made the perfect sympathy card with a technique I really enjoy – heat embossing!  Here’s her video- http://youtu.be/ELTGqrgIDks  Here’s my card.

Using Serene Silloutte stamp set you first stamp a brown layer and then using Versa mark you stamp slightly over and to the side of the brown layer. Using a Stampamajig is definitely a must on this one.  Then you heat emboss white powder. Then by sponging the brown color over and around the two images you really bring out the shadow effect.  I used Chocolate Chip only because I thought it was softer.

I hink this card has SO many possibilities and Dawn references that in her video.  Color combinations and themes are endless!  I hope you give the shadow effect technique a try!

Have a Magical day!
