Christmas Kickstart Challenge

The Christmas Kickstart Challenge is use an Christmas embossing folder and stamps so here is my entry, this is an old embossing folder from Provo Craft, I have followed a technique I saw somewhere online, sorry I can't link as I am nor sure where I saw it. For this I inked up the embossing folder in green and then stamped onto the folder with some snowflake stamps from Hero Arts.

When you run this through your sizzix machine the ink and stamped snowflakes are transferred onto the card as you can see in this close up.  Its very subtle but looks effective.

 Next I got a foam dabber and lightly brushed Cracked Pistachio and Scattered Straw ink over the embossed surface, finally I added some Nuvo drops to highlight the features on the tree. A fun technique that I will definitely try again.

I shall also add this card to the Lets Squash It challenge.


Have a great weekend
