Hi everyone! Its Gwendolyn here today, instead of Lee Ann who is on a well-earned vacation, to inspire you to join our latest challenge ” Christmas in July“! Its also a good occasion to start on those Christmas cards as time flies by so quickly that before you know it, Christmas will already be upon us!
I made a sparkly Christmas card using Hero Arts Ornate Floral stencil by first going over the stencil with Hero Arts clear embossing and watermark ink, placing it carefully on my card base, and then running it through my Big Shot Plus to get a nice raised impression! I then sprinkled Wow embossing powder premium glitter called Santorini, which I mixed with Hero Arts sparkle embossing powder, as the glitters don’t melt on their own.I heated it with my heat gun to melt the powders and the base of my card was done! To create the sentiment, I first stamped Merry Christmas with a stamp from Hero Arts Polar Greetings stamp set on a strip of paper and heat embossed it with Hero Arts Detail Black embossing powder. The blue background of the sentiment was created with Spectrum Noir sparkly blue markers!Well, I hope you liked my card and that you’ll be inspired to join in our challenge here. I look forward to seeing your amazing creations.
Have a wonderful day doing what you love!
