Gold-Accented Chipboard Letters Card

Hey, everyone! Roree here with another Make It! Monday project. Today I am sharing a card I created using heat-embossed chipboard letters for my sentiment.

I have been seeing lots of gold-accented chipboard letters on projects lately, and I absolutely love the look! I didn’t have any in my stash, but I did have all of the ingredients to create my own. I started with a pack of chipboard alphas (an old set by BasicGrey), clear embossing ink (Tim Holtz® Distress Clear Embossing Ink), gold embossing powder, some washi tape, and a heat tool.

I chose a letter from my chipboard alphas pack and covered the area that I did not want embossed with washi tape.

I stamped the letter with the embossing ink pad, saturating the exposed area with ink.

I sprinkled gold embossing powder over the inked area covering the entire surface. (I did this step over a coffee filter to collect the excess embossing powder so that I could put it back in the container.)

I carefully removed the washi tape so that I did not disturb the embossing powder.

I used my heat tool to melt the powder and let it dry to set.


I repeated these steps for the other letters in my title and added them to a card I created using the new High Five collection from We R Memory Keepers.

This is a fun and easy way to achieve the look of gold-accented chipboard letters on your projects without having to run out and buy them. And if you don’t like the look of gold, then you can work with a color of embossing powder that you do like to get a similar effect.

I hope you enjoyed today’s Make It! Monday project. Thanks so much for stopping by!
