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!

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 30 minutes + dry time

Step 2

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.

Step 4

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!
