Today’s video shows how I now make the heat-embossed bauble card, which is an improvement on the process for the Balmy Blue card I shared on Saturday. When I’m asked to make a card I’ve already shared, I have to remake the project immediately before I make the video. This is to remind myself of anything special I need to say about the project or the process. There are occasions, as with this project, when I find an easier way of doing a part of it. This certainly applies to the die/fussy cutting of the bauble!
On the original card, I used a circle die to cut out the bauble, which meant the cap was cut off. I remedied this by heat embossing another cap and adhering it on the top. In the end I decided the circle was a bit too big, so I fussy cut a slim part off all round. When I was doing the second card yesterday morning, I fussy cut the complete heat-embossed bauble, so there was no need for the circle die, and therefore the cap didn’t get cut off! There were another couple of small changes from the original Balmy Blue Bauble.
The first was that I adhered the heat-embossed bauble on Dimensionals, which I feel added a lot to the overall look of the card. The second change was that I added some small white dots in the scallops of the oval die cut sentiment. When I showed the original card on Saturday, I’d photographed it before I had added the Rhinestones. This was another of those order tramadol online next day last minute changes I’d decided to make, because I kept looking at my card as I was writing my blog, and decided that’s what the card needed!
The card I made before the video was in So Saffron……………….not a colour I use often because I’m not an orange/yellow person. Something made me use this yellow and I’m so pleased I did! I think it has worked really well; certainly a lot better than the Soft Sea Foam! This is my new favourite colour since the colour revamp but it was definitely too light for white embossing!
If you watch the video, you’ll see I noticed at the end that I had heat-embossed the So Saffron bauble properly. I’m pleased to say, I was able to finish off the heat embossing after I’d finished videoing!! That’s about it from me today. I look forward to being back with you tomorrow, and in the meantime, happy crafting.
