Workshop Make & Take
I designed this card for the make and take at last weekend’s workshop because the Hostess had previously ordered Heat and Stick powder and Dazzling Diamonds and had not been able to get it to work.
I started with a base of Old Olive and added a layer of Whisper White which I embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. The image from the Lovely As a Tree stampset is stamped using Old Olive ink onto Whisper White card. The entire piece is then covered with Versamark ink and then covered with my Heat & Stick/Dazzling Diamonds mix and heat set. (I mix my Dazzling Diamonds and Heat and Stick powder in equal parts which makes it only one step to get the shimmery look to the card front.) I have to apologise because I didn’t take a close up of the image panel to show you the gorgeous shimmer this technique gives. The image panel is added to a mat of Old Olive card stock and then added to the card front. A 1″ wide piece of Whisper White card stock is wheeled using the Soft Holly standard wheel and Old Olive ink. The edges were also sponged using the same ink. Both long edges of a 1-1/2″ wide piece of Old Olive card stock were punched using the Scallop Trim Border Punch and then attached behind the wheeled Whisper White card. The piece is then attached to the card front covering the bottom section of the image panel. “Merry Christmas” from the Petite Pairs stampset is stamped onto Whisper White card using Old Olive ink and punched out using the Large Oval Punch. The greeting is attached to an Old Olive Scallop Oval and then the card front.
This card gave the guests at the workshop an opportunity to try a few different products from the Stampin’ Up! range. Although, I must admit that it is always easy to get a gorgeous card using the Lovely as a Tree stampset.
Bye for now, Kris.
