A quick post of a card I made last minute for the Lawnfawnatics Emboss Resist challenge.
I saw many beautiful cards from Laura Bassen and she loves to colour with distress inks. I wanted to try this technique, so I white heat embossed a lot of little houses from the Winter village stamp set (Lawn Fawn) on Bristol Smooth cardstock. I cut them apart and sponged different Distress Inks on them, then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
For the background I added water splatters to a Bristol Smooth cardstock and white heat embossed it. Then I sponged Distress inks on the whole panel and misted with Shimmer mist for a subtle sparkle. I also dabbed some of it with a paper towel for more texture.
I die cut 3 stitched hillside borders and stamped the greetings with colourful inks on the smallest one. I re-stamped the upper one with Versamark ink and added clear embossing powder to it. After heat setting it gives a lovely shiny look to the sentiment.
After assembling the card, I added some Spectrum Noir Shimmer pen to the roofs and went over the snow caps with a white acrylic marker. I also added some extra dots to the background with the same marker for more snow falling.
I will upload this card project to the following challenges:
- Lawnfawnatics Emboss Resist
- Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Winter holidays
- Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Stitch it
I hope you like this very cheerful holiday card and will return soon for more inspiration.
See you soon,
