Thanks for stopping by! Today I’m sharing holiday card that is loaded with lots sparkle and shine because it’s almost entirely coated with GLITTER! But not the messy kind! This card was made with WOW! Embossing powder with glitter!
I feel fairly accomplished at ink blending so I thought I’d give some glitter blending a try! I selected glittery embossing powders from WOW! Just their names sound delicous! Mai Tai, Strawbery Daiquiri and Punch!
I used an ink blending brush to apply embossing ink to a white panel of cardstock to help avoid straight harsh lines. I applied one color at a time. This gave me the ability to keep it clean by holding opposite ends as the heat melted the powder, and to do some overlapping if necessary.
My paper was quite curly after heating the powder. No worries because when I cut the Flicker Frames they came out nice and flat. I reserved the space in the center to cut a background for the ornament I placed inside the window.
I alternated glitter and white cardstock to help define the ornament. It’s gorgeous! I hadn’t realized that the ornament I used was no longer available.. but there are several others in stock that will fit in the frame perfectly like the Flicker, Meridian, Twinkle, Belle, and Marisol – and they’re all on SALE! The Flicker Frame set is more than 50% off at $30! (regular price $79) .
I love the non traditionally colors and swoon! All that sparkle! A simple “merry christmas” sentiment is the finishing touch!
I hope you feel inspired to try this embossing powder blending. It’s magic when the powder comes to life and melts!
