Cream and Kraft Cardstock
Dye ink (brown for tree trunk)
Peg Stamps: Embellished Holiday Wreath, Fruit Wreath
Other Stamps: Large backgrounds, trees
Punches (optional) photo corner and postage stamp
1. To create the card base fold a 8.5:x5.5″ panel of cream cardstock in half. Stamp 3 backgrounds in 3 colors of ink. Experiment with different patterns to create fun backgrounds!
2. Stamp or draw a tree on a 3.25″x4.5″ kraft panel. Dust this panel with cornstarch or baby powder (or make a sachet like I showed in the video!)
3. Stamp ornaments with pigment ink, sprinkle with embossing powder and heat with a heat tool.
4. Stamp postage element if desired and punch photo corners.
5. Assemble card.
I hope you try this technique, there is nothing quite like seeing embossing powder charge from a sugary coating to a raised glossy image. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
