Iron gates with heat embossing

I love the metallic looks you can achieve using embossing powders.

This card was made using the WOW! brand embossing powders and all items were cut files, or print and cuts from the Silhouette Online Store and made on my Silhouette Cameo digital cutter.


The iron gate, cut on my Silhouette Cameo from a design by Jennifer Wambach, was heat embossed three times using WOW! Primary Ebony Regular embossing powder. The finished gate had a great tactile quality.

The snowdrop embellishment, also designed by Jennifer, was miniaturised  (top right on the card) and 'enamelled' with WOW! Clear Gloss embossing powder to make a badge.

I'm just wandering what else I can 'iron-ize'!

Update: I was very happy to win our Silhouette Cameo FB page's Charity Card Challenge with this card. All the cards in the challenge were donated to Maggie's Cancer Centre in Aberdeen.  The goodies from Graphtec GB (UK distributors for Silhouette digital cutting machines) and That Craft Place (UK FB shop) were great!
