Well, that's the festivities over, time to get back into crafting, though the cards I have to share today were made way back in November last year.
The first is a Christmas card with a difference ...
Here's are the steps to making the background:
- First step, gather together the materials - white card, VersaMark Ink Pad, Sheena WOW! Easter Sparkle & Magenta Twinkle embossing powders and a heat gun.
- Second step, cover the card with the VersaMark by smearing it all over - this doesn't have to be too precise - then sprinkle with the yellow powder. Knock off excess and then use a heat gun to melt and set the powder.
- Third and final step, repeat the second step but this time using the pink embossing powder.
That's all there is to it. I did find that the effect looked better if I used shiny cardstock, as in the second card ... I used smooth card for the Christmas card and, as you can see, the effect is quite different - much more of the pink powder stuck!
Challenges I'm submitting the cards to:
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 210 - I used several snippets of white, yellow and pink card to make the cards.
That's me for today - I'm off to do a bit of blog-hopping and then later work on my Christmas scrapbook, in the hope of finishing it before Christmas 2016 :)
I hope you are all keeping dry and cosy wherever you are.
