Glitzy Dry Embossed Background with Jenny Colacicco

Hi Everyone! It's Jenny here, and today I have a super glitzy background focused card to share with you!  I often like to combine geometric and modern backgrounds with soft florals.  I really love the juxtaposition between the two.  Today I focused on a soft blue pallette to set agains the glam background.

I first took an A2 panel of black cardstock and swiped it with the WOW! Embossing ink pad all over.  I then completely heat embossed the panel with gorgeous Silent Night embossing powder.  It's a beautiful mix of blacks and silver powders to give an almost industrial silver look.  Completely gorgeous in real life. 

I decided to dry emboss the panel with a geometric embossing folder.  As I only had done one layer of powder, this worked really well, with no cracking.  Those geometric patterns (from a WRMK folder) really catch the light!

I then heat embossed this floral image from My Favorite Things, in Opaque Bright White embossing powder onto Bristol Smooth cardstock. I colored it very lightly a pale blue and gray Zig Clean Color Real Brush marker, pulling out the color with a clear shimmer pen to give extra sparkle.  I then fussy cut it out and popped it up on foam squares onto the dry embossed panel.

The sentiments used were some spares left from my video earlier this month by Taylored Expressions,  heat embossed in WOW!  Metallic Silver onto black cardstock and die cut with the co-ordinating dies for the stamp set. I added them with foam tape.

As a finishing touch, and because I apparently didn't have enough sparkle, I added some crystal gems to reflect all the colors back, and few dots of Nuvo Glitter Drops in Dazzling Blue in the flower centres.  I then mounted it all onto a white cardbase.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays folks!

  1. Fantastic background, the dry embossing reveals so many colours!

  2. What a wonderful sparkly look and love the softly coloured flower and the black sentiment strips look great over the top with the silver embossed words which pop beautifully. Lots of contrast on this card. x
