In the last few months, I’ve received several No Contact orders which means that the customer would prefer I not contact them. Please know that I always send a thank you via email for any orders placed through me and that I’m very appreciative. If you’ve placed an order and have NOT received a thank you and didn’t realize you chose No Contact, please contact me. On to today’s card!
I started with a base of Pool Party cardstock with a layer of Whisper White cardstock that was cut using the So Many Snowflakes Dies and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I love how the die, cuts an opening in the paper with pretty stitching and snowflakes!
I added a piece of Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper behind the opening before adhering the Whisper White cardstock to the card base. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink using the stamp set Wrapped in Christmas and then embossed with Silver Embossing Powder (see directions for heat embossing below). I cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Dies and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Using the So Many Snowflakes Dies, I cut two snowflakes out of Silver Foil (I rolled up several Mini Glue Dots into balls to attach them). It was a fun card to make and really quick and easy!
How to Heat Emboss
Prepare your cardstock by rubbing an anti-static pouch over the surface (this helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder). Stamp your sentiment or image using a Versamark pad. This is very sticky ink and your embossing powder will stick right to it. Sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped image. Shake off any excess. Before applying heat to your paper, heat the Heat Tool first so the paper won’t warp (about 10 seconds). Direct the heat over your image and watch as your sentiment is transformed!
