Using my Detailed Floral Thinlits as a Stencil for a Heat Embossed Background

I saw the lovely Gina K from Stamp TV doing a tutorial promoting her stencils in which she demonstrated using them to create heat embossed backgrounds which made me think about using my Detailed Floral Thinlits in much the same way.

So I die cut the pattern onto a piece of scrap card.   Then I used that as a stencil, placing it at an angle over a piece of Whisper White card stock and holding it in place with some washi tape.  I then took my Versamark Pad and pressed it all over the top of my die cut, pressing down nice and firmly, so the glue from the Pad carried through onto the card base below.

I  removed and discarded the die cut card, applied Gold Stampin' Emboss powder to the Versamarked image and heat embossed it.   It was very simple, but I do love the pattern which transferred through my makeshift stencil.

I chose a sentiment from my Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and die cut a butterfly from a Gold Foil Sheet.

I layered my heat embossed card onto a Gold Foil layer and then applied this to a Note Card base.

I have to say I am pretty chuffed with how it turned out.

Hope you like it.

Thanks for looking.  I hope you will pop back again.
