A Christmas card catalog came in my mail the other day and I thumbed through it, looking for inspiration. I came across a pretty foil card very similar to this and thought "I can make that!" I used heat embossing instead of foil to create this shiny, snowy card.
To make this card, I first made a mask of 1/2" for the top of the card and 1" for the bottom out of scrap paper. Then, I heat embossed the first layer of trees with White Embossing Powder. After that, I sponged the background with Marina Mist ink. I then removed the masks, and heat embossed the second layer of trees with Silver Embossing Powder. This time, though, I used a Versamarker to ink the trees because I didn't want the grassy area in the stamp to show. Finally, the greeting was embossed in silver, as well.
The Christmas Greetings Stamp Set is a handy little set that you may have overlooked in the Stampin' Up! catalog. It consists of just two stamps, an inside and an outside greeting. Useful and affordable at $10.95. It is available in wood mount only.
