Christmas is fast approaching…have you started your shopping yet?…What about your Christmas cards?
I’m starting to get mine ready now, can’t wait to the last minute. I love giving hand made cards, it makes the gift of giving so personal even something as small as a card.
Stampin’ Up!® have some amazing Christmas stamp sets and bundles in their Holiday Catalogue this year. Sometimes its hard to choose which one you want or maybe you just want them all! One that I really wanted was ‘God’s Peace” because of the Biblical message it shares.
With this card I wanted the message from Luke 2:10-11 to be the focal point, so I kept the card design very simple.
The technique used is called Resist Embossed, its not hard to do and I think looks very effective. The Message isn’t lost or over powered by the image and the image is still there.
How do you do Resist Embossed Technique?
With all the stamping I used the Stamparatus, so I could make sure I got good clean images.
- Stamped the Bible Verse Luke 2:10-11 or background stamp you are using.
- Rub Embossing Buddy over the area where image was to be stamped
- Stamp image in VersaMark, and heat emboss using Clear Stampin’ Embossing Powder. * If you embossed the image first and then stamped the verse you would have parts of the verse missing where it goes over the embossing . As the ink resists the embossing. So by stamping the verse first and then emboss you still have the verse intact.
- With a sponge or dauber very lightly blend colour over the top of the embossed image blending the edges out to white. The embossed image then comes to life like magic. Use a soft cloth to rub off any excess ink stilling on the surface of the embossed area.
* From here you can add all of these items to your order or remove the tick from the box of those items you don’t require.
