Video: Gold Embossed Feathers using Happy Dreams Stamp Set

by May Sukyong Park

Altenew HandmadeCard MayPark 1Happy Friday! It's May here sharing a fun card featuring Happy Dreams stamp set and Bold Alphabet die set. As the Lunar New Year is just around the corner, I wanted to create a sort of Happy New Year card by not using the common greeting “happy new year.”

Altenew HandmadeCard MayPark 5Then I came up with my own sentiment, You make it happen! This also can be used for the encouragement card. By the way, my card inspiration came from the cover photo that I found on the fashion magazine.

Altenew HandmadeCard MayPark 2I made a video tutorial to show you how to make this card from start to finish. I’m also sharing some tips along the way you won’t want to miss. :) You can watch it here or on YouTube channel.

How to Make a Card with Gold Embossed Images 

  1. Trim red cardstock into 4.25″x5.5″ and treat it with anti-static powder.
  2. Stamp the feather image from the Happy Dreams stamp set with watermark ink.
  3. Heat emboss the images with Ranger super fine gold embossing powder.
  4. Mount my gold embossed panel on the A2 sized top folding white card base using double sided tape.
  5. Die cut YOU using the Bold Alphabet die set.
  6. White emboss the sentiment from the Happy Dreams stamp set on a piece of black cardstock.
  7. Add white dots between feathers using Signo white gel pen. 
  8. Mount the die cut letters and sentiment banner on the card front using foam tape.

Altenew HandmadeCard MayPark 4I hope my card inspired you to create your own card with gold embossed background.

Stunning card. I love the gold against the red. I was fine out the dots but once you added them WOW awesome thought. I guess I need to keep going /broaden my thoughts on what can I do to make it even more better. I love this card. the sentiment is perfect and doesn’t take away but just added to the stunning card.. I didn’t know there were black foam dots out there.. thanks.. I will be looking for them. Love your video.
