Embossed Resist Mini Slimline Card: More Holiday Cards

Hello friends. Want to make an impactful background with little effort. Try using an emboss resist technique. You can stamp or stencil the embossing. Either way the results are impressive!

For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 6 x 6″ and scored at 3″ to create a card base. I cut a piece of Neenah 80lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 2-1/8 x 5-1/8″ and die cut a scalloped border using Queen & Co Foundation 17 Dies.

I used Tim Holtz Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean and Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide Inks to color the background. I sprayed some water on it before adding the snowflakes. Next I used Simon Says Stamp’s Falling Snow Stencil with Versamark Ink and White Embossing Powder to create the snow in the background.

I stamped the images from Stampin’ Up!’s Warm & Toasty Stamp Set (retired) onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored them with Copic Markers. I used YG03, YG17 & YG67, C1, C3 & C5 for the sleigh; N1, N2 & N4, R20 & R46 for the bunnies; R46 & R32, C1 & C3, YG03 & YG17, R20 for the mice; and R17 & R46, Y06 & Y17 for the ornaments.

I stamped the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy Stampset onto the card with Versamark Ink and White Embossing Powder.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s Merry Messages Stamp Set with Stampin’ Up! Real Red Ink and the mice from Stampin’ Up!’s Warm & Toasty Stamp Set (retired) with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Combining Dies to Make a Background: Strawberry Jar Shaker Card (feat. Lawn Fawn)

Hi friends. I tried something new with my background dies which gave me a cool 3-dimensional background. I combined the Catherine Pooler Designs Narrow Stripe Cover Plate and the Catherine Pooler Designs Sprinkles Mini Cover Plate to create this fun background. It was super easy. Here’s how I did it…

For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base. I also cut a piece of Lawn Fawn Gotta Have Gignham Rainbow 12×12 Collection Pack to 4 x 5-1/4″ for the top panel. I die cut two pieces of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with the frame from the Catherine Pooler Designs Sprinkles Mini Cover Plate (3/4 x 4-1/2″) and then used the Catherine Pooler Designs Narrow Stripe Cover Plate to diecut that piece. Then added every other stripe to the rectangle panel I previously die cut to create a tone-on-tone 3-d effect for my background.

I stamped and colored all my images from the Lawn Fawn How You Bean? and Lawn Fawn How You Bean? Strawberries Add-on stampsets. I stamped them onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Ink. I colored the images with Copic Markers. I used BG000 + 0 for the mason jar and R22, R05 + R27 and YG05 + G07 for the strawberries. Then I die cut all the images using the coordinating dies.

For the mason jar shaker, instead of using foam tape (which would be a slight pain to add due to the small size) I diecut about 7 mason jars from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock using the Lawn Fawn How You Bean? Shaker Add-on and stacked them. I diecut the acetate piece with the same die set (using the background die included) as well as the backing piece for the shaker which I colored with the same copic markers (BG000 + 0).

For the shaker element, I used Queen & Co Toppings in Pink and Clear Diamonds and some older Martha Stewart Iridescent Hearts and Stars Glitter (no longer available).

For the sentiment, I stamped one from the Lawn Fawn How You Bean? Strawberries Add-on stampset onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Ink and cut it down to 3/4 x 1″ and popped it onto the card using some 3M Foam Tape.

Lastly, I finished it off by adding some highlights with a White Gel Pen. One note: I added the highlights to the strawberries on the inside before adhering it inside the shaker element. I also added some Ruby Slipper Nuvo Glitter Drops to the card.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn How You Bean? stampset with Stampin’ Up! Real Red Ink. I also added a strip of the same pattern paper from the front of the card measuring 1 x 4-1/4″ and adhered 1/2 a strawberry image I had left over.
