How to Hot Foil Over an Embossed Background

Hi there, everyone! Happy release day! Lydia here and I'll be using a few of the new products in this new release. And, I'll also show you how you can hot foil over and embossed panel. How to Hot Foil Over an Embossed Background I started by hot foiling the large image from Blossoming Bouquet Hot Foil Plate onto a piece of watercolor cardstock using Mirror Gold Hot Foil. I then watercolored the image using Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set.  Once the image was colored and dry I die cut it using the coordinating die. 20240624 114314 1 For the background, I dry letterpressed Foliage Fiesta Press Plate. To do this, all you need to do is not ink the press plate, simple as that, and you will get a beautifully dry embossed image, debossed into your cotton cardstock panel.

I then hot foiled a sentiment from Cascading Vines Press Plate into place on to the embossed panel. I truly love how classy this looks and you could just leave this as-is for a simple and elegant look. The die-cut image was then added into place using Instant Dimension Foam Tape. 20240624 114323 1 To see how this hot foil and embossed card came together please watch the video below or over on YouTube:  Placeholder Thanks so much for stopping by!
