Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
I am excited that the weekend is here, and today I kick off a new season of my Stampin’ Technique Clubs. Our September technique will focus on different ways you can use your embossing folders… and I chose the new “Woodland” folder.
Today I will show you something fun to do with your folders (they’ll make 2 more!) I can’t show them to you yet because it will spoil their fun. I began my card by embossing the trees using Soft Sky cardstock
Using the “White Stampin’ Chalk Marker” – I colored the trees and branches to highlight them even more. Wow … it looks so cool and it’s so easy to do!!
I colored in the indented areas of the tree with my Soft Suede marker to coordinate with the base of my card. Don’t you think it makes the tree more realistic looking? I love White Birch … I think it’s my favorite tree!
I added a simple greeting (I think this one got past my purging of discontinued sets) and then added one of the new “Snowflake Elements” to add texture and continue the “woodland” feel of the card.
I didn’t want a lot of glimmer on this card, so I added just a touch with a rhinestone in the center of the wooden snowflake. You could easily add glitter to the branches to create a shimmery snow effect!
What a simple way to make an impact (the WOW effect) on your card… just by coloring the embossed area. Hope you enjoyed today’s technique tip!
Thank you for taking time to visit with me today.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend ~
Remembering the anniversary of 9-11-01. We will never forget.
