Hello Blogland Friends!
I am finally getting motivated to get going on my Christmas cards.
I wanted a background to showcase this gorgeous snowflake die cut. I was sitting on my deck a couple of nights ago looking at the sky, wondering how I could recreate it. This is how I did the background.......
1~ Sponge Rangers Faded Jeans Distress inks on white card stock and spritzing it with water. Heat set it with my embossing gun.
2~ Then I rubbed the ink pad directly on my craft sheet and misted water onto the ink. I layed the card stock onto the misted ink on the craft sheet and heat set it.
The nice thing about this way of doing your background is if you don't like the way it looks you can repeat steps one and two until you are happy with it.
I die cut Impression Obsession's Snowflake Die-DIE024 with Silver Mirror Paper. When I use intricate die cuts I always put a piece of wax paper in between the die and the card stock. This makes it easier to remove the card stock.
I adhered the snowflake with a mini glue pen and added some bling. I see I missed one.
I embossed Impression Obsession's Merry Christmas-B4609 with Silver Embossing powder and added some bling to the holly. I popped it up with pop dots over a Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing folder. I don't know what the name of it is, my sweet friend Judy aka jadekay ran a bunch off for me on one of our visits. The metal and bling ribbon I bought at Joanne's in Seattle.
I am entering this in the following challenges.......
