Hello again… I couldn’t help it – I played with the Joyful Flurry bundle again. I had an idea about making the Wonderful Snowflakes gold and simply HAD to give it a try. And guess what… it worked. First use the embossing buddy to remove any static. Use the VersaMark ink pad to tap onto the snowflake, sprinkle on gold embossing powder and heat set. I heated from the under side of the snowflake. I did have to do this a couple of times for good coverage.
Next I took a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Basic White and the Frosted Flurry Dies to make a card front. Some of the snowflakes in this die set cut all the way through, some do not, but create wonderful designs with some cut-outs. I chose one of those, well two of those :O) I figured out the placement of the now gold Wonderful Snowflake, removed it and ran the Basic White panel through the cut & emboss machine. I punched up from the back all the little designs, then cut a piece of Brushed Metallic Gold to put behind the cut-out snowflake, adhering it to the back of the Basic White with Tear n Tape. I adhered the gold Wonderful Snowflake with a dimensional in the center. To create the banner from the Joyful Flurry stamp set, I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set – again from behind. It seems to create a nicer finish when heating the gold from the back side. I then used a banner die from the Frosted Flurry Dies to make the banner. I had die cut the remaining snowflake but it needed to be trimmed around the middle to be free to add. At this point I sprayed the card front with a Stampin’ Spritzer filled with drops of Frost White Shimmer Paint & rubbing alcohol. I added three Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front. All this was attached to a Thick Basic White A2 card.
For the inside I again used a sentiment from the Joyful Flurry stamp set with VersaMark ink and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder, heat set from the back. I spritzed the panel with the same Frost White Shimmer Paint and rubbing alcohol in the Stampin’ Spritzer. It barely shows in the photo but in person, it does!
On the envelope, I used the Splatters embossing folder (from Stripes & Splatters) to emboss the flap. For the envelope front, I stamped a snowflake from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Memento ink, then filled in all the openings with Wink of Stella. The camera does not capture this well :O( And the card was done. Elegant.
What do you think? do you like the Wonderful Snowflake in Gold embossing powder? I definitely do and may try it in silver embossing powder as well :O).
