Emboss Resist Christmas Card

 I am finishing my Christmas Card series this year with an easy one, as long as you have some inks and any Christmas stamps you can do this card. I am using the Sunny Studio Classy Christmas stamp set to do my first card, but you can use anything you have.  I stamped random stamps off this stamp set all over a card panel with versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder. I left an area in the middle where I will put my sentiment. 

I then used some distress oxide inks, candied apple and pine needles inks and blended the ink heavier at the top and bottom, and fading into the middle where they meet.  I think I should have faded it out a little sooner, so the colours didn’t meet, as the colour it produced was a bit muddied, but you live and learn. 

I then rubbed the ink off the stamping with a paper towel, and see the white of the embossing pop!  I went back and stamped my sentiment with versafine onyx black ink and clear embossing powder. 

I trimmed down the card panel to be slightly smaller than the card base, so that I have a white edge around it, and stuck it to my card base, you could stamp straight onto the card base if you choose. I dotted a few clear sequins around it just to give it a bit of sparkle and that’s the card done.  Easy.


I show another example where I stamped snowflakes onto a card panel, did some blue ink blending, and then made a scalloped edge with a die, and then attached it to a card base.  You can do anything really to decorate your card panel.


I have a video of making the card.
