Emboss Resist Technique

When was the last time you created a card using a technique? I don't do techniques very often but, sometimes I'll go on a technique spurt where I'll try several new ones, and revisit some older techniques. The last couple months I've been doing a bit of both.

Today's card features an emboss resist technique. It's simple to do and the effect is amazing. Here are the steps you do to create this look:
  1. Stamp desired image with VersaMark onto glossy or whisper white cardstock. This image is from an upcoming stamp set called Petal Palette (available Jan. 3). Note: for this card I only stamped the image around the edges, leaving the center blank.
  2. Sprinkle with white embossing powder, tap off excess and heat set.
  3. Using a sponge, add ink all over and around stamped images. I used a combination of emerald envy and lemon lime twist inks. I love this color combination.
  4. Take a tissue and wipe off the excess ink from the embossed areas. This step will make the images pop. It looks amazing in person.
  5. To decorate the rest of the card, I add a vellum heart to the center and then stacked a couple of the words congrats and added them over top. 
  6. The embellishment is from the Petal Passion embellishments pack (available Jan. 3).
Wouldn't this make a great wedding card?

Have a creative day!
