I was cleaning out a drawer in my crafting room today and I found all my embossing powders. I cannot tell you the last time I used that technique, so I felt it was time to dust it off and use it. For today's card, I used that technique in tandem with my beloved Cricut. LOVE IT!
The stamp set that I used today in tandem with the Art Philosophy cartridge is call Snowflakes. I coordinates with cartridge and the pretty snowflakes stamp later beautifully as you will see below.
|This is the stamp set I used. It is called Snowflakes.|
|I used Papertrey Ink paper and ribbon.|
|I cut the cream colored snowflake out at 3 1/4" using the Art Philosophy cartridge. Then stamped it using the olive green ink. I stamped the next layer using Versamark ink. Next I sprinkled embossing powder on top and heated it using my embossing heating tool. One of the best tips on successful embossing is use a quality embossing powder. It makes all the difference!|
