Today I got out some old embossing powder which looked more like a glitter. And, the thought occurred to me that it might work into a beautiful Christmas card design. But when I looked at the embossing powder I realized it was really old. Get this! It says on the container to stamp with ink, then add the embossing powder and place it over a lit light bulb or warm iron to emboss the image. Amazingly enough it still worked and I am very happy about that.
To make my background I took some red liner tape in two different sizes and laid them onto the white card stock. I then took off the red liner and added the glittery embossing powder and proceeded to make my background. Thank goodness I have a heat gun! I also happened to have some mini gem lines from Glittrazzi which I added in between the red liner tape strips
On white card stock using Versamark I stamped the swirly tree image from the Gina K. Designs Joyful Holiday set illustrated by Theresa Momber. I also embossed the tree with the glittery blue embossing powder. I then fussy cut around it and popped it over the top of my background using pop dots.
I placed the completed panel onto a base card of Blue Raspberry card stock. I finished the design by adding rhinestones to the tree. A sheet of white paper was added to the inside so I can have a stamped sentiment and write a short note.
Well, guess what? I think I have a blue sparkly looking kitchen floor now too. Maybe it is time to sweep but it does look rather attractive. LOL
