I was heat embossing Christmas sentiments yesterday afternoon and out of the corner of my eye I spotted the Foil Snowflakes I had on my worktop and I had one of those ‘light bulb moments’.
There are 12 gold and 12 silver snowflakes but I wanted to see if I could emboss them with copper embossing powder.
I placed one of the gold snowflakes upside down on my silicone craft sheet and added Versamark all over it. I then covered it in Copper Embossing Powder and heat set it. I made a cuppa whilst I was waiting for it to cool down and then added some more Versamark and another coat of copper embossing powder. I loved the effect it gave, it looked metallic.
I also tried it with the Silver Embossing Powder, even though the other side of it was already silver.
I also tried it with White embossing powder with some Dazzling Diamonds added to it, I can’t capture how sparkly it is with my camera.
The Foil Snowflakes are in the new Autumn/Winter catalogue and will be available to purchase from 1st September. There are 12 gold snowflakes and 12 silver snowflakes. The picture below shows the silver embossed snowflake at the top compared to the ones you in the packet.
I hope you like today’s project. I would love to hear your thoughts on these. If you have any questions please leave them in a comment below.
