It has been ages since my last post - it is amazing how quickly the last few weeks have just flown by and I've really gotten very little crafty time in.
This is a card that I made on the weekend for the latest (and almost closed!) TIME OUT Challenge. The challenge is embossing with an optional twist of sparkle - so I wanted to make a card that featured three different types of embossing - and lots of sparkle!
I started out by using some embossing paste through a Memory Box stencil on the card panel. When the paste was still wet, I added some Distress Rock Candy glitter to it for some sparkle. I then die cut the Simon Says Stamp snowflakes and coated them in silver embossing powder which I heat embossed. For the greeting, I used part of an embossing folder but before I embossed the paper, I applied some Distress Ink to the folder and I sprayed it with some shimmer spray (more sparkle!). The result is that the raised part of the greeting remained white while the depressed part was watercoloured. To assemble the card, I glued the snowflakes to the card panel and then I wrapped a piece of ribbon around it (I love ribbon on Christmas cards) and glued the greeting on top. I then used foam tape to put the panel on the card base.
I will link this card to TIME OUT Challenge and also to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where the challenge is anything goes.
Thanks for stopping by!
