We had a team night last week – my upline Eimear gets us all together for a chat, tea, cake or cheese & biscuits, a few make and takes and a challenge. I volunteered to do one of the make and takes this time and after thinking I’d make a Christmas card came up with something completely different. Strange how that happens! This is the card:
The technique is called “emboss-resist” and it’s easy and effective. My card base is half A4 Blackberry Bliss,scored and folded on the short side, the mat is Delightful Dijon and the top mat is Very Vanilla. I used the embossing buddy all over the Very Vanilla and then stamped the World of Thanks stamp in Versamark. I heat embossed it in clear and then sponged over it using Tip Top Taupe (a small amount – it added real warmth to the other colours), Delightful Dijon and Blackberry Bliss. Although I went from one corner to the other is would look great in a more symmetrical pattern as well.
The team liked it, Eimear was pleased and I have to admit, I loved it. Hope you do too!
