Spooky Double Embossed Halloween Card with Die-Versions Dies



Happy Monday everyone! It's my turn to post a card on Die-Version's blog and mine, and I am sharing this spooky Halloween card featuring Die-Versions Spooky Fence Die. I created the background using a favorite new technique with embossing powders and embossing folders that I discovered here. I applied black and brown Staz-On ink directly on the aluminum foil I had wrapped around a thicker piece of cardstock. I applied Versamark ink to a spooky eyes embossing folder from Darice and ran it through my die cut/embossing machine. Then I dumped on black, gold and brown embossing powders in a random pattern and melted them with my heat gun. The last step in this technique is to sponge black archival or Staz-on ink around the edges and to highlight some of the embossed eyes. I cut the Spooky Fence die out of black glossy paper and attached it to complete this Halloween card. Here is a close-up of the spooky double embossed background:
