General Techniques



1. Apply a strip of 2 1/2” Tear-ific Tape to a piece of white cardstock.



2. Remove the protective backing and apply Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter, burnishing in with finger.



3. Stamp your image (a bold one works best) on top of the glittered piece with Staz-On color of choice.


4. Stamp words with Staz-On Black.


5. Cut and emboss with appropriate die.  (Spellbinders 2010 Heirloom Ornaments was used here).


6. Put a piece of wax paper between the stamped image and the B plate (my plates are pretty cut up and the wax paper keeps the image clean).


7. Ink up the inside of your embossing folder.


8(a). If you were to run a piece of white cardstock through the folder. This is the result:


(I decided to discard this idea, and tried to clean off the folder, by spraying with Staz-On Cleaner.  I noted that the folder became wet, and decided to run another piece of paper through (wrapped in paper towel so as to not get ink everywhere), and achieved the look I was hoping for. See 8b.

8(b). Spritz the embossing folder on the inked surface with Staz-On cleaner, insert a piece of white cardstock and run through embosser wrapped in paper towel, in case any of the ink leaks out.


Now see the difference - that’s a background worth keeping!

9. Ink up the edges of the card front with the same colors of ink and edge with ½” Tear-ific Tape.


10. Remove the protective backing and center the December panel.

 11. Apply Cloud Nine velvet glitter to the exposed edges.

12. Attach the ornaments with dimensionals.


13. Enjoy your finished card!
