Believe, May Your Christmas Dreams Come True

20181110_161226

Hi there, I hope you’re having a lovely day!

Today I’m back with another card using the beautiful Outline Snowflakes cling stamp from Simon Says Stamp.

I used VersaMark ink and white Hero Arts embossing powder to heat emboss the Simon Says Stamp Outline Snowflakes cling stamp onto Canson XL watercolor paper.

I wet the entire background using a flat brush and clean clear water. Then I very gently tapped some Catherine Wheel Nuvo Shimmer Powder over the panel. Using a 2 round brush I gently moved the powder and color around so that the entire panel was covered.ย  I say gently because I wanted to maintain the varying colors in the Catherine Wheel powder and if you move the powder too much, it tends to blend into a single color.

While the panel was drying, I used the Believe die and the Tiny Words Christmas stamp set to create the sentiment.ย  I die cut “believe” out of white cardstock and its shadow layer out of vellum, and then I adhered them together.ย  I stamped the rest of the sentiment in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink onto white cardstock.

When the background was dry, I adhered the die cut with a bit of liquid glue and used foam tape to pop up the stamped sentiment.ย  To finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thanks so much for visiting!
