Hi to everyone. May I start off by saying Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends in The States, and hope you have a great time. It's just as well we don't celebrate it here because I don't think I could find the time to make all those extra cards.
Today's card is, guess what, another Christmas card. I decided that, as I had never made one before, I would go for all white. To make the card I used: Square White Card Blank, Heat Resistant Acetate, WOW Embossing Powder Sparkling Snow, Versamark Ink, Chocolate Baroque Bold Snowflake Shadow Stamp, Nellie's Scallop Border Die, Chocolate Baroque Poinsettia Stamp, White Parchment, Sakura Silver Gel Pen and a Silver Sentiment.
I started by stamping with the Snowflake Shadow onto heat resistant acetate with Versamark Ink and heat embossing with the WOW EP Sparkling Snow. I haven't used the embossable acetate before, and although it will take heat I think I got a little too close with the heat gun and it did wrinkle a bit, but apart from that I thought the results were fine. I stuck this to the base card, but because of the wrinkling it was a bit troublesome to glue flat, but I decided to go with it. I then made the border with the Scallop Border Die, running it through twice to make a decorative strip, and glued that in place. I stamped and heat embossed the Poinsettia twice onto the parchment using the same WOW EP as before, cut them out and layered them up. I used a Sakura Silver Gel Pen to highlight the centre of the flower and finished with a silver sentiment.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
