In the flurry of stamping that has been going on in the studio this week, I broke away from autumn projects and put together this winter card. The embossed tree uses a custom blend of powder — both white Stampin’ Emboss Powder and Dazzling Diamonds. I love the effect (but I know you can’t see all the sparkle in the photo here). On the mat I used the available-again Metallic Encore Pad (this is my original pad from years ago!). I heat set the image to make sure I didn’t smudge it. Finally I test drove the Stylish Stripes embossing folder, another example of a product I didn’t fall in love with in the Holiday Catalog. But it is so pretty!
