Copper Foil Merry

 

I began by using the Big Shot to cut the word “Merry” (Merry Christmas die set) from Copper Foil. I wanted to raise “Merry” on my Whisper White cardstock, but the letters are too narrow for dimensionals. There is nothing like the Corrugated embossing folder to add extra dimension without using dimensionals!

 

Now that I had my focal point, I needed to add some Christmas cheer, without going overboard. I decided on copper splatter, and I found the perfect, non-messy, stamp in the Waterfront stamp set.

First, I stamped the Waterfront stamp on the Versamark pad, then on the Whisper White cardstock (above and below my focal point). Second, I sprinkled this with Copper powder, shaking off the excess. Third, I shot it with the Heat Tool until it was set. 

You can see how it shines, and matches “Merry” in the photo above. 

 

After adhering my art piece layer to a Thick Whisper White card base, I needed a few more sprigs to complete my clean & simple card. The Whisper White branch and Cherry Cobbler berries are from the Frosted Bouquet die set, and the Garden Green pine boughs are from the Night Owl die set.

 

My inspiration for today’s project was from this week’s challenge at Less Is More.

 

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!
