[Technique] Contact Paper Masks & Heat Embossing by Channin

Hello everyone! It’s Channin here with another technique video! This week I create an elegant Christmas card design with simple masking and heat embossing. Check out the video below to see how I created inexpensive masks with contact paper.

[Technique] Contact Paper Mask & Heat Embossing by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I created a mask with a scrap of contact paper and the Poinsettia Matching Die. I then removed the backing and placed the contact paper mask onto a square panel of 110lb white cardstock cut using a die from the Lacy Squares Die Set. Next, I covered the entire panel with Versamark ink and then poured gold embossing powder over the surface and then removed the mask. I then heat set the embossing powder and then mounted the panel onto craft foam. Next, I stamped the poinsettias into the negative space using the Poinsettia Stamp Set.

I then die cut the front of an A2 top-folding card base made from red cardstock with a die from the Stitched Layers Die. Then I adhered the red card base on top of a white A2 card base which I trimmed down 1/8” on both the long and short sides (4 1/8” x 5 3/8”). Next, I die cut the string and tag from the Poinsettia Matching Die set and then stamped the corresponding string image and sentiment onto the dies cuts. Lastly, I adhered the poinsettia panel, tag, and string onto the card front with liquid adhesive.

I hope you enjoyed! Thanks so much for stopping by!
