Preparing for Christmas

No I'm not buying presents and decorating just yet! But I like to get an early start on making designs of Christmas cards. Although this year I may not make as many since I still have all the ones I made last year and did not send out any because we moved 3 weeks earlier than expected!

For this card I used the embossed resist technique. Start with a piece of Whisper White card stock, stamp your image using Versamark ink and add some white embossing powder. Once you heat set your image and it has cooled use a sponge dauber to get your image to pop!

Supplies
Stamps: Serene Snowflakes, Many Merry Messages
Ink: Night of Navy, Versamark, Bashful Blue
Paper: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Accessories: Silver cord (retired), pearl, stampin' dimensionals, sponge dauber, white embossing powder
