Christmas Kickstart's Guest Elf this time is our dear friend, Darnell, the
Queen of Twofer! So the challenge is to do Two different Christmas cards
using the same stamp, die or stencil.
And to make it even more fun, it needs to be done with Christmas trees.
I gently dabbed some Versamark on the raised edges of the Corbel Tree Die
and used it to dry emboss this card. Then I poured some white embossing powder
on top and heat embossed it.
You can see my friend Trina's Double Embossing tutorial here.
After dry and heat embossing the tree, I die cut the half circle and
stamped some snowflakes and heat embossed them.
I added a bit of "snow" under the tree and a sponge dauber with the white
ink to add some snowy haze.
I went over the high points of the tree with Wink of Stella so
it has a nice shimmer when the light hits it just so.
and my twofer....
Here's a closeup in case you'd like to see more sparkle.
This time I die cut from some glimmer paper and adhered it to
a Dark Green card base.
I used a snippet of the green for the sentiment to ground the tree.
I've used some stickers to trim both trees.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
