And yet another senior moment I was sure I ordered a blue embossing powder but no I brought WOW Velvet Glitter Embossing Powder. So the idea I had went out of the window and I could easily use Bright White Opaque Embossing Powder but I'm always singing its praises and I use it regularly so I wanted to use something else to showcase what fab powders WOW are.
Now there is nothing wrong with the Velvet Glitter and as it happens I love my glittery Simon Says Stamp Snowflakes. Basically I used a Versamark pad and smothered a bit of cardstock then sprinkled the powder on it. You think you are using loads but in fact when you tip it back in its pot you've hardly used any at all.
The fun bit is using a heat gun to turn the powder into a sparkly bit of card. I used Simon Says Stamp Alexis and Maryann Snowflake dies, the little tiny one is Lawn Fawn Mini Snowflakes on the embossed card. Yes it did stick a bit to the die but I have a Versamark pen so I just topped them up with a bit more powder and heated it again.
I've the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle and their Stitched Banners to make the actual card and the sentiment is probably my favourite Christmas one from Simon Says Stamp Christmas Toys stamp set.
