Today I like to share with you a card from our Guest Designer Jessie Hurley. Jessie has many years experience in the craft industry having owned her own Papercrafting shop and the experience she gained teaching craft classes and make and takes all over British Columbia, Canada.
Jessie describes herself as the Technique Master, since she has rarely repeated a class.
The technique she is sharing with you today is one that I absolutely love and can not wait to try myself. For this card Jessie used our Daisies in Oval Peel-Off sticker and one of our new embossing folders. I hope you are just as excited as I am! First have a look at this beautiful card and read Jessie’s step by step instructions below.
Step 1: Carefully peel your Elizabeth Craft Designs Peel-Off sticker and place it on the back side (the silver side) of the Spellbinders Craft Foil.
Step 2: Using your paper stomp, on the coloured side of the craft foil, (the side that doesn’t have your peel-off sticker) gently rub the area where the Peel-Off sticker is underneath, being sure to get into each area and making the lines of the peel-off sticker show up sharply through the craft foil. If you do not make the image sharp, then the next steps will not be as spectacular!
Step 3: Place the Craft Foil onto the embossing folder, it doesn’t matter which side of the folder, though each side will give you a different look. Tape the foil down if you would like to ensure that it doesn’t move in the next step.
Step 4: Again with your paper stomp, rub around your Peel-Off image, creating an embossed pattern on the craft foil. You do not need to rub too hard for this step, but you do need to ensure that the pattern is complete. You can not do this step using your embossing machine, as the machine will emboss the pattern on the embossing folder right into your Peel-Off image.
Step 5: Using your sanding block, gently scratch off the top surface of colour on the craft foil. I like to rub in small circles as the scratches will show up on the metal, and circular scratches are nicer looking than straight scratches! You can rub off as much or as little of the colour as you like.
Step 6: Attach the image to your card. There is no need to remove the Peel-Off sticker from the craft foil. It will help keep your image from collapsing as people poke it to see how you did it!
