WCMD sparkly embossed resist background video tutorial


One last post on this wonderful World Card Making Day! One final technique, with a twist, like always. 


This is a basic emboss resist. Always beautiful. Always classy. Always flat. I add a couple of twists, so be sure and watch the video to see how to create the sparkle! There is also a couple of ink tips that will be very helpful.

Click the image below for the video.



Mail-able Card Idea #9:
Create an embossed resist background with ink, watercolor, or mists. The technique is flat, but adds beautiful dimension to your cards.


I hope you had an amazing day today! I hope that you were inspired by what you saw here and all over the web! Here is to beautiful holiday cards!

thanks for stopping by!

Love this card SO much Kimberly! It's perfect for mailing and mass producing--it packs the "wow" factor punch with none of the bulk!!! Gorgeous and I have a feeling it's even more so in person! Love the soft watercolor bg and sentiment too---simply fabulous :) Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you had a great WCMD too! Hugs my friend! :)
