This was one of my favorites from the swaps at OnStage. I love the copper embossing with Mint Macaron; so simple, yet so elegant!
And since this is one of the (*ahem* few) stamp sets I DON'T have, it's nice to have a sample to show my stamping ladies. I had to email Anna to ask how she did the tree. I kind of figured it was a negative from a die cut, but the coloring is so smooth and even, I needed to know how she did it. Did she spritz it? Use the sponge brayer? Turns out she sponged some of her swaps and used a sponge dauber on others. I think the Shimmery White cardstock probably helps make the color go on evenly. I'm definitely going to try it. Thanks for the help, Anna!
Here's the "How To"
Tree: Scrap of cardstock at least 3" x 4" to die-cut tree
Star: Scrap of Copper Foil Sheet 3/4" x 3/4"
Image: Shimmery White 3-3/4" x 5"
Card base: Mint Macaron 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored and folded at 4-1/4"
- Die-cut medium tree from Perfect Pines Framelits Dies in cardstock scrap and use negative to sponge tree shape in Mint Macaron ink onto Shimmery White cardstock.
- Rub Embossing buddy over and stamp greeting with VersaMark ink, then cover with copper embossing powder. Tap off excess and heat with heat tool until melted.
- Adhere to card base. Die cut star in Copper Foil and adhere with glue dot. Add strips of Washi Tape.
