Oh my, I haven't played with any challenges in such a long time. It sure feels good to get back at it. And what could be better than a blue Christmas card. I just love blue Christmas cards. They're my favourite! Colour Q #113 has an awesome combo of blues to try this week and the technique I wanted to try worked out great with Stampin' 411's sketch #231. Here is my card.
I don't know what the technique is called but it involves embedding Glass Glitter in Clear Embossing. Love the effect! The embossing powder is so thick that if you drop the glitter on the embossing the moment after you heat it and heat it quickly again, it literally melts into the embossing. Pretty neat to watch actually. Now the other cool thing is that the embossing is so thick that once it cools, if you bend it a little it starts to crack. I only did two layers but it was cracking with me barely touching it. It is such a neat looking card in person.
I sure hope I get the chance to play along with other challenges soon. I really had a good time and love the way I was inspired. Thanks for stopping by.
