Happy Wednesday, my friends!! I have to say that I had A LOT of fun playing with these Wow Embossing Powders this week. They were absolutely magical to watch melt. I tried to capture a little of it in my video. I’ve used plenty of E.P.’s before and none that were this mesmerizing.
I kept the cards pretty simple so the EP and dies could be the focal point. For this one I used the One Hundred and One embossing powder which is a classic black and white. I thought it paired nicely with this Congratulations die by Crafters Companion.
I love the dies I used this week as well. I can see myself using this Congratulations die for years to come. It’s a great script font and I’m a sucker for any word die with a corresponding shadow or outline die.
The other die I used is called Wave Ribbon Collage from Memory Box. I have Sharon from Uniquelykdesigns to thank for the die and the Black Magic embossing powder (used on 2nd card). I saw a card that she had made on her Instagram account and I knew I had to have both the die and the EP. You should check out her IG account and see what I mean. She’s a very talented card maker.
This gorgeous black card stock is called Onyx Black Pearlescent by Tonic and it was just what this card needed. The second part of the sentiment is from the printed sentiment labels called Sentiment Labels 2 by SSS. Love that you can just cut these and attach to your card.
I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to do a shaker card or just a window card because these word dies with outlines are perfect for shakers. But I wanted to keep it simple so I decided to just do a window card.
I added a 2nd layer of card stock on the inside so that that acetate wasn’t exposed showing where I glued it. The second part of the sentiment is from the Tiny Words stamp set by SSS. As always, I used the Sentiment Labels die to cut my sentiment in perfect strips and covered the bottom banner with Gold embossing powder.
So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!
