Emboss Resist Technique

Hi Everyone!

I made this card to give for a birthday, but I think it would look really lovely changed up for Christmas.  The new Serene Snowflakes stamp set is really beautiful, I bet that would look great!

So the colours for this card are Real Red, Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery.  The stamp sets are Short and Sweet and One of a Kind.  To do the emboss resist technique: stamp your image with VersaMark ink onto Glossy Cardstock.  Sprinkle with Clear Embossing Powder and heat with your Heat Tool.  Use your Brayer, inked with Bashful Blue, and colour over the entire image.  Use a tissue to wipe off any excess ink.  This technique is another unique way to use your stamps to create a whole new look!

I hope you have fun re-creating this card, and if anyone makes one with snowflakes, be sure to email me a picture!

Happy Stampin'
