It’s Erica back on the WOW! Blog and YouTube channel today with a Christmas card. This is the theme of the month of September in the WOW! Embossing Facebook group, and with Christmas coming up fast, it’s time to start working on those cards!
I decided to go CAS for my card, and let Santa take centre stage. In order to satisfy my need and love for texture and layers, I have used Puff Powder to create a snowy background. It’s white, but still adds a ton of texture and interest to the card!
To start with, I coloured my Santa with Copic markers and cut him out using the coordinating diecut. These are from Picket Fence Studios, as is the Copic friendly ink I stamped it up with.
For my background I used a snowfall stencil, with the Embossing pad as well as the Embossing Pen, directly onto the card base. This is sprinkled heavily with Puff Powder, before tapping off the excess gently. I wanted to keep as much of the powder on the card as possible for maximum texture!
With the heat tool on speed no2, I melted the powder and watched the magic happen. This is insanely cool!! Once that was cool to the touch, I stamped up a sentiment in the bottom right corner. Which I kept free of the heat embossing just for this purpose. I finished off the card with a Merry Christmas stamped on a strip of white card stock, which was then adhered to the card and the excess trimmed off.
That’s my card for today, I hope you enjoyed it and if you want to see the Puff Powder melting in action, hop on over to the WOW! YouTube channel and watch the video I made for this post.
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting from Erica
