Embossed Shimmer Sheetz - Christmas Card


Hello everyone! It's Bibi here today to share one of the many two cards I sent out this year. Yes, two.... Not that I hadn't made a bunch of cards for my quick and easy Christmas cards post earlier this month - and I had all the time in the world to write inside the cards and make envelopes, or so I thought ... But you know how fast time flies - especially in December!

Here is one of the cards I managed to send out in time:




The embossed panel is Shimmer Sheetz, which is an iridescent metallic Mylar by Elizabeth Craft Design (I'm not affiliated, just love this product!). After embossing, I altered it with alcohol inks, sanded it lightly to reveal the white core, then I added some bronze paste to the edges. I wanted to add some gold mica powder to the paste, but it flew everywhere and stuck to the alohol ink on the Shimmer Sheetz. I liked it, though - a happy accident - so I added more and set it with a fixative spray. The stamped trees are from the Whimsical Winter stamp set by Rubber Dance. I white embossed them and coloured them in with ZIG markers to match the colours of the card. I adhered the trees with some really sticky clear tabs (Power Tabs by Tombow) to raise them up from the card and make sure they stayed there.


On behalf of the crew and team here at Rubber Dance,
I wish you all a very Merry and Happy Christmas!

With Love,
