or not, I'm off to Telford today!
Over the next three days, I'll share the Convention with you and will be able to share some super swaps with
you once I get back!
Today's card is all white except for some minimal gold embossing.
started my card with a base of Whisper White Cardstock (CS), with two
layers of Whisper White CS.
When we use our really thick Cable Knit
Embossing Folder, we're advised to give it a light spray with water.
wondered what would happen if I did that for a regular embossing folder.
As there's only one way to find out the answer to questions like this, I
picked up the bottle and sprayed.
The CS started to bubble!
it with my stamp cleaner spray!
It was interesting to see but I really
didn't need to know that's what would happen! LOL!
I took another piece of Whisper White CS
and sprayed twice, lightly with water!
Then I ran it through my Big Shot
using the Holly Ebossing Folder.
It came out beautifully but I'm not
sure it's any better than it would have been had it not been sprayed.
then took a smaller piece of Whisper White CS and
wiped over it with my
I used the Nativity stamp from the Joyful Nativity
Stamp Set and stamped it with Versamark.
Then I stamped the PEACE BE
WITH YOU stamp from the Reason for the Season Stamp set in Versamark,
I covered both images with Gold Embossing Powder and heat set using
my Heat Tool.
don't know why but I was left with a small straight line near the bottom
of the ground where Mary is kneeling.
I used my Gold Wink of Stella
Glitter Pen and very carefully painted over the white area.
sits on top of heat embossed surfaces, so I removed it very carefully
using a piece of kitchen towel.
It hasn't totally concealed the blemish
but it is a lot less obvious!
attached the first layer to the card base using Dimensionals and then I
used Glue Dots to attach the dry embossed layer.
I also used Glue Dots
to attach the image to the Whisper White layer and then attached it to
the card front using Dimensionals.
very striking, quick and easy card to make.
That's about it for today.
I'm off to do my packing now.
Until, tomorrow, happy crafting!
