I’m Dreaming of White Christmas
by Mark Melnick
I wanted to make a shimmery white on white holiday card. A key technique to keeping this interesting is to create layers. Plus, I couldn’t help but add a pop of color too!
Time: 30 minutes + dry time
Spray medium weight cardstock with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle. Let dry.
Run your spritzed cardstock through an embossing folder. Cut a separate piece of cardstock into a tag, and deboss or run through the same folder in opposite direction.
Apply Delicata White Shimmer to the raised areas of both pieces of cardstock with a Sponge
Using a two-piece ornament die, die cut ornament background out of colorful cardstock or vintage ephemera. Die cut ornament top piece out of white cardstock. There are many ornament die cuts available, use what you have or fine one that fits your style!
Punch a hole in the top of tag and lace ribbon through. Adhere ornament pieces together, and to the front of the tag. Adhere tag to main embossed piece. Mount to the card base.
