We hope you heard the news we shared yesterday about our first collaboration with our friends at Sunny Studio! It’s been something we’ve been looking forward to for some time. We hope you’ll find some new tips and tricks to use after seeing all the projects this week!

Sunny Studio Spring Collaboration

Today Rebecca Keppel shows how you can create your own “metallic embossed” paper with a little help from one of our NEW products…read on!


Deco Foil Metallix Spring Cards

Did you know that you can make your own metallic embossed paper? It’s super easy with Therm O Web’s Deco Foil Metallix Gel, plain white cardstock and embossing folders.

I love embossing folders because they are pretty affordable and with the many colors of Metallix (SIX amazing colors!) you can make a huge variety of Metallic Embossed Paper using them.

Whether you like heavy coverage like above or a more distressed Metallix effect like this one, you will love the shine and texture you can achieve by combining embossing folders and Deco Foil Metallix Gel!

These DIY metallix, embossed papers are great backgrounds for thank you cards, birthday cards and more!

If you don’t have many embossing folders, but you are a fan of panel dies, you can achieve a similar result with the same technique.

The White Pearl Metallix die cut layered over white cardstock creates a subtle, but elegant pearl, embossed look, perfect for a wedding card!

I filmed a video where I show how easy it is to create these DIY metallic, embossed papers and use them for cards! Check it out here:

I hope you will give this technique a try! Thanks for stopping by!
