Looking for a fun technique? This one has been around for awhile, but sometimes oldies are goodies 🙂 Besides, anything in blues and browns is gorgeous right now–oldie or not!
I created this card for my November Stamp Club, using the Tapestry Technique (see below for directions). The colors are Chocolate Chip for the background cardstock, Brocade Blue and Close to Cocoa for the technique layer, and the snowflakes are all stamped in Whisper White Craft Ink.
The Serene Snowflakes stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog was perfect for the ‘mood’ of this card, and it stamped beautifully in Whisper White ink.
The greeting is from the fabulous Level 1 Hostess Stamp Set, Holiday Best (choose it for free when you have a party, book party or personal order of at least $150!). The Christmas greeting perfectly matches the Ornament Punch from the Holiday Mini Catalog.
- Using Craft Ink, sponge with 2-3 colors over a piece of neutral cardstock.
- Stamp over the top in Whisper White Craft Ink.
- Pour Clear Embossing Powder over the whole cardstock; heat emboss.
- If needed, add Versamark ink to the cardstock and layer more embossing powder.
Classic Pad version:
Sponge in Classic Ink, stamp with White Craft Ink, Heat Emboss, then add Versamark Ink to the card front and heat emboss with more Clear powder.
