Here is my Brayered Rubber Band Gold Tinsel heat embossed card!

I did a major reorganizing in my craft room recently and found this leftover piece of Brayered Rubber Band Gold Tinsel from 6 years ago.  I knew we were going to be doing this technique soon.   So this card was such a CAS quick and easy card to design.  I loved the results too! 

 Thanks Julia for hosting this really cool technique.  I am looking forward to making more cards with this technique.  I just wrapped narrow Rubber Bands around my brayer.  Brayered
my Versamark pad and heat embossed with Ranger Gold Tinsel EB powder.
It is such a pretty shiny and glittery Gold background for my die cut Thank You.

I die cut my window with my Dianamics Square Peek-a-Boo Window Die.
Die cut the main image layer with my PB Antique Die.
Next placed my layer in my MISTI and stamped my sentiment with Archival Black ink.

Then attached my Rubber Band layer behind my window and attached my black die cut PoppyStamps Thank you.  I die cut 2 black cardstock Thank you's for more thickness.
I used Tomboy glue to attach Thank You,  
weighting down with my acrylic block until dry.

I then popped up my main image with fun foam and attached to SU Thick WW Cardstock.
I hope you join us for this really fun and easy technique.

  1. Such an elegant and classy card Nancy. The rubber band technique looks fabulous in the gold glitter and the black sentiment on top looks gorgeous. This is a new to me technique and I had so much fun with it and just think you had kept a piece of this technique from six years ago! Stunning card x

  2. Gotta love it with unexpected finds! The black sentiment is a super contrast against your gorgeous gold rubber band background. Really great gender-neutral card, Nancy. xx

  3. Perfectly elegant Nancy, don't you just love your UFO stash. I'm so impressed you kept this beauty for 6 years, I would have used it long before now :)

  4. What a fabulous leftover piece (from 6 years ago!!) you found, Nancy! I love the pretty Gold Tinsel lines! Tilting the word, thank, creates a fun feeling. The Peek-a-Boo Window and the PB Antique die add interest to the white front panel. Very classy CAS card! Hugs.. Hideko

  5. Love love love this card Nancy. Totally gorgeous with that gold tinsel powder. Nice find btw. Great idea with the peek a boo die and popped with that super wiggly die. Stunning!

  6. The rubberband technique looks lovely on your panel embossed with the wonderful gold Nancy! The black sentiment pops right off it - your die cut framing is so pretty raised off the panel! Julia xx

  7. So pretty Nancy! I LOVE that gold tinsel embossing powder and it looks so shimmery over the white background. Great design, my friend! xx

  8. Love the sparkly tinsel embossing powder - so elegant with the black and white. Now that the challenge is up, I must get out some rubber bands!

  9. This is so pretty with the tinsel embossing, Nancy! It sparkles so pretty and the black die cuts play off it beautifully!

  10. Nancy, I LOVE this! How cool this turned out! Love the gold background with your black, die cut sentiment. That frame is just beautiful too! Fantastic design.

  11. Oh, gosh, I remember this technique from ages ago! Your gold tinsel embossing is a fabulous spin on it. So pretty, and with die cuts these days it's nice to be able to put the sentiment right on top of it. Love the black, white, and gold combo. Your major craft room reorganizing sounds like fun, too. I enjoy things like that and it's so nice when it's done!

  12. Delicious glitter! I normally don't do videos (no time...), but perhaps I'll make an exception...Perhaps there is something new to this ancient technique....

  13. This gold embossing with the rubber band technique is so bright and beautiful Nancy, and the pretty Peek-a-Boo Window shows it off superbly, and love the black die cut and stamped sentiments which work well together. x

  14. Simply lovely Nancy! Love the sparkle

  15. This is fabulous Nancy, love the gold embossing of the stamped rubber band background. All beautifully framed in white using two different dies, brilliant. The black word die and sentiment are perfect too. Very elegant, love it! Hugs xx

  16. The golden rubber bands made me think of a very fine embroidery thread on linen fabric. This is so pretty & shimmery as a background for the bold sentiment, and love that fab die as a frame. It looks great with the frame popped over the 'embroidered' golden strings. (ps...thought I had commented, but guess I just looked on my 1st looky!) TFS & Hugs
