Holiday Card Workshop 2022
Day 7’s sessions were all about embossing folders. Koren Wiskman’s session was Spotlight Ink Blending + Embossing Folders. Using SSS A2 Masks, I ink blended Distress Oxide inks in Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness going from light in the center to dark outside. This panel was then run through my Big Shot (still working with protest — LOL) using SSS Holiday Greenery embossing folder. The die cut sentiment is Spellbinders and added a SSS Christmas Foilage die in red. The embossed panel is very subtle but it’s nice that the entire panel is embossed.
The “extra credit” session was presented by Laura Bassen in which to create an ink blended pattern + embossing folder. For this card, I went back to a Taylored Expressions Plaid stencil using DO Evergreen Bough, Festive Berries and Black Soot. My first thought was to use versamark and gold embossing powder on the black lines but I was too impatient to wait for the ink to dry so went with black soot.
The embossing folder is from Sizzix. I embossed a piece of white card stock and fussy cut the center section of this embossing folder and adhered it to my card front. The stamp set is AI Penguin Joy and how surprised was I when my upper and lower flourish nestled the sentiment very nicely. Using the same inks, I added color to the holly and berries.
A very traditional Christmas color day for me. I think I like the second plaid card the best and, wow, I actually think my lines look straight. It was a good day!
Thanks for stopping for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care and be safe.
