A Snowflake Resist

I saw this Beautiful card by Lesley at Always Playing with Paper and just had to recreate it.

It uses an Emboss Resist Technique. Sound hard? It truly isn't. It's just a few short steps. First, you stamp and heat emboss your snowflakes. I used Versamark & White Embossing Powder. Secondly, you stamp over your embossed snowflakes. I used the large French Script stamp. Thirdly, once that dries, you sponge around the snowflakes. This gives the card such great dimension.

If you've never tried an Emboss Resist, live on the edge and give it a try...you won't regret it!

Thanks for stopping by.

Stamps: Serene Snowflakes, Tiny Tags and French Script
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake and Whisper White Cardstock
Ink: Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake Classic Pads; Versamark Pad
Accessories: Heating Tool, White Embossing Powder, Snowflake Punch, 1/16" Circle Punch, Jewelry Tag Med Punch, Scalloped Edge Punch, Sponges, Tan Brad and Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon
