ABC Christmas Challenge for the month of December is Y for Yikes and Z for zooming. YIKES is right. Yikes because here it is almost Christmas and I never even used all the new stuff i bought for my cards this year. Yikes because here it is almost Christmas and I never even used all the new stuff i bought for my cards LAST year. Yikes because i wanted to do this very simple card and two hours later it is finally completed. I couldn’t figure out how to get the glitter onto those snowflakes and then onto the cards. I think my brain is worn out. I thought i was working with double stick paper but i was only using one stick side, i tried spraying the backs with adhesive and then the front would hold the glitter. I made a mistake and tried to use embossing glitter and that didn’t work at all. YIKES i am sick of working on this so called simple card. But to my credit, i prevailed, and here it is!!
What i ended up doing was using some one sided sticky paper. I cut out the stars using my new MFT snowflake dies. Peeled the backs off and poured the glitter onto the sticky side, burnished with a paper over them and a pop sickle stick. Sprayed the backs with spray adhesive, stuck them on and added a sticker border. The sentiment from MFT embossed nicely with Tsukineko #02 Silver. This is the best shiny silver embossing powder i have used. I love the shiny embossing it gives. I had some other stuff that embossed kind of gray metallic instead of silver and I love this one. Thanks for stopping by.
