A unique color combination for a Christmas card Stamping style

I must confess, this isn't actually a sale.  đŸ™‚  But… it is on the web, so it definitely meets the "cyber" requirement.  This is a Christmas card that I made with my club gals last Christmas.  All of the supplies used are still available, so you can still replicate this card if you want to.  The color combination that I used for this card is definitely not your standard Christmas colors, but I was pretty pleased with the way that it turned out.  The technique that was highlighted with this card is called emboss resist.  It is a pretty easy technique, but you can make some real "wow" projects with it.  The swirly tree panel was created with the technique.

Here's how you do emboss resist:

  1. Stamp your image in Versamark ink on glossy white cardstock
  2. Heat emboss with clear embossing powder
  3. Brayer or sponge ink over the whole panel making sure to get in the nooks and crannies around your embossed image
  4. Wipe the ink off the embossed image with a paper towel, and the image will really pop out.
