Stencil Embossing with Hero Arts


Thank You Card
I’ve been wanting to try using a stencil as an embossing folder for a while now
and this month challenge was the perfect push! I decided to take it a step further
and ink with the stencil as intended before running it through my embossing machine.

I first affixed my stencil to some white paper (4×5 1/4) using Micropore tape.
Next, I used assorted Hero Arts inks and a mini blending tool to ink up my background.
I then ran it through my Grand Calibur using their standard embossing sandwich recommendation.
You do need to be careful removing micropore tape after its been run thru a die-cutting machine.

Moving onto my sentiment, I die cut a little tag and used MISTI to stamp my sentiment
in some matching ink. I poked a few holes with the crop-a-dile to add ribbon and adhere it around the back.

To finish, I mounted this piece onto some fun foam for dimension and then onto a coordinating
color cardstock cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 and finally mounted onto a a2 card base.

I hope this provides some fun inspiration for you to join our April Stencil challenge.
