OK, some times these blog post titles gets a bit strange. BUT, well, what else do I call it?? 🙂
This card is using the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set which you will find in the Annual Catalogue. I looked over this set so many times in the catalogue but on our weekend I got to play with it and now I love it. I might have even bought my own set now!
The Base card is Dapper Denim. Hence the Dapper in the title 🙂
First off I Heat embossed in White Embossing Powder on to Whisper White card. Then sponged Dapper Denim ink over the card. I sponged it a bit heavier over the snowflakes. (maybe a bit too heavy, but anyway!). Ink it until you are happy with the colour. Then you can go over it with a tissue to wipe off the ink from the embossed areas. I really like the magic of this as you wipe over the images. It makes the images shine. I added some stars stamped in Dapper Denim over the card.
I wanted to add some copper to this. I matted the card onto some Copper Foil Sheet. Just a tip: I cut a rectangle from the centre of the copper mat so I don’t waste it as it is just hidden under the cardstock. I am sure you can have a use for that.
I cut a “merry” from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits from Copper foil too. The Christmas is from the Holly Jolly Greetings set. I thought it needed something else so added a Copper Mini Pinecone embellishment in the corner tied with some Baker’s Twine. I think I have been converted to copper too.
Hope you like it. Have a super wonderful day wherever you are.
