I've been working on my Christmas cards lately and used this week's sketch at Try Stampin' or Not on Tuesday to create today's card. It was a fun and easy sketch for sure, although taking pictures of the embossed gold was not nearly as easy! I did some light and dark backgrounds trying to get decent pics!
Along with this week's sketch is an optional technique: paper tearing. I tore the edge of the card stock, then dragged it through my Versa Mark pad so I could emboss the edge of it gold. It never really melted like it normally does, but didn't flake off either. I was afraid if I heated it much more I was going to start my card stock on fire! lol Make sure you head over to the Try Stampin's blog HERE to check out all the great cards made using this sketch. We'd love to see what you create if you get a chance to play along. :)
I guess I can't add my color squares like I usually do since it will just show Whisper White and that would be pretty boring! lol
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
