See How to Heat Emboss on Rinea Foil Paper

by Martha Lucia Gomez

Hi there, Martha Lucia here! Today I am featuring one of my favorite techniques, heat embossing over Foiled Paper. During this month the teams of Imagine and Rinea are working together to promote the combination of these brands. The base of my card is Sahara sand card stock and the second layer is Mocha/Gold Glossy Rinea Foil Paper. Let me share with you the entire process.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 30 minutes


Step 1

Cut the base of your card. Mine is 4-1/4″x11″ with the score in 5-1/2″. Cut a second layer using your favorite color of Rinea Foiled Paper. Mine is Mocha/Gold Glossy. Select the embossing folder that you want to use. Mine is Tile Patterned from Darice. Ink a brayer with VersaMagic Cloud White or any pigment ink. The brayer will make the color uniform.

Step 2

Ink the de-bossing side of the folder with VersaMagic Cloud White or any other pigment ink. Rub the Rinea foiled paper with an anti-static bag or embossing buddy.

Step 3

Put the Rinea foiled paper inside of the inked embossing folder and pass it through your die cut machine.  Remove the embossed foiled paper and cover it with white embossing powder. Melt the powder with the heat tool, taking care of not burn your foiled paper.

Step 4

If you consider necessary to make a few retouches of the embossed layer, you can use the VersaMark pen and cover the area with the same color of embossing powder. In this case, white.

Step 5

Paste the embossed layer over the card base and finalize the decoration of your card. I decided to add a thick word die cut and for that, I cut several layers of the die-cut in card stock and one on Marigold Starstruck Rinea Foiled paper.  I am using the With Love Word Die from Lil’Inker Designs.

Step 6

Paste and stock all the word die cuts using On Point Glue.

Step 7

Paste the decorated word over your decorated card with glue dots.
