I had so much fun creating today’s card and I love the way it turned out! The background on this card was created with the snowflake stamp from the Colorful Seasons stamp set (2017-2018 Annual Catalogue) and an emboss resist technique on Glossy Cardstock that gives a gorgeous backdrop on any card.
How To Make This Christmas Card:
Start with a base of Thick Whisper White cardstock and a piece of Glossy Cardstock to fit on top.
To create the emboss resist background:
Stamp the snowflakes from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Versamark ink all over the glossy cardstock- it’s a little hard to see where you’ve stamped, just just be careful not to overlap the stamped images. Then sprink White Stampin’ Emboss Powder all over the stamped images and melt the powder with the Heat Tool.
Roll the Sponge Brayers over the ink pads you are using for the background colors- I used Bermuda Bay ink and Lemon Lime Twist. Run the brayers over the embossed images to cover the area with ink and ensure there are smooth transitions between the colors. Then take a tissue and rub the stamped areas to remove any ink sitting on the embossed areas.
Finish off your card with a Christmas greeting- I used the greeting from the Tags & Trimmings stamp set that I die cut with the Stitched Shape Framelits dies. I matted the greeting over a scallop die cut I made with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits and some Bermuda Bay Mini Chevron Ribbon that was attached with the Tear & Tape adhesive.
