Triple Embossed Glitter Christmas Card

Make a two in one card for Christmas with Glitter Embossing

 Hi, Christine Saunders here again with a new technique for you all to try - Iv'e been playing again with powders and glitter and have come up with this technique for glitter embossing. 

This Christmas Card has Glittered Triple Embossed Christmas Trees which can double up as Christmas Decorations too.  All 3 trees have wire loops attached to them so you could hang them up on your tree or use them for decorations next year.

To make the card ink up the WoW Embossed swirly cardstock with green and brown ink leaving the centre white. Stick onto brown folded cardstock leaving a section on the left for a ribbon embellishment.

Cut out 3 triangles, ink up with clear embossing ink and add Red Sparkle Embossing Powder - heat to set . Repeat this 3 times more but this time use Clear Gloss Ultra High to add thick layers. 

Using the "Is it a Bird" stamp set, ink up a tree with gold paint, dip this into gold glitter. Heat up your embossed tree and stamp into the hot powder with your prepared, glittered stamp.  The glitter will stick to the image creating a lovely gold sparkly effect.

Be sure to wash your stamp off thoroughly - I use a hard stencil brush to get all the glitter and paint off.  Repeat this twice more with other stamps from the set on the other two trees. Add a wire loop to the back of each tree. (Each tree could then used as a Christmas Decoration if you want).

Stick these to your card with 3D Foam squares.

For the sentiment - use the Merry Christmas from the "Merry and Bright Christmas" Set of stamps and emboss with Evergreen powder on white cardstock.  Cut a piece of card larger than your wording and emboss the middle with Red Sparkle and the outside with Evergreen. Add this to your card to finish.
I'm off now to make more Christmassy things using the paint and glitter technique.  Have a go yourselves. It's easy and looks fab.
