It’s Christmas in July

Hello folks.  This was a very hard card to photograph because of the pigmented Mica watercolors I used.  Ever since I saw Draped Ornaments, I’ve been wanting to try this technique which is very pretty in real life.  You can get Draped Ornaments, or any other stamp, such as Merry Christmas 2, which was used on my card, at 10% off simply by using TJ10Beth.

Steps to Making My Card:

  1.  Using an embossing buddy, wipe the entire surface of your black paper
  2. Stamp VersaMark on your stamp and stamp it out.  Heat emboss in gold or silver (I did both and both looked great)
  3. Using a small brush and water, paint the ornaments with Mica powders
  4. Using your enbossing buddy, once again, rub the area that you want your sentiment to be and stamp out your sentiment with VersaMark
  5. Heat emboss in gold or silver
  6. Mat with shiny paper if you have it

Thank you for stopping by!
