I'm behind with my June Christmas card quota so I just worked with some stamped images on the desk for Holly's challenge today. We were away for the weekend, so I'm playing catch-up with things round the house.
Base fits a business-size envelope.
Base layer is blue card stamped with Sparkling in Encore Silver and embossed with silver EP.
Sentiment is See-D's, stamped with black, cut with Fancy Tags, with silver Stickles all round the edge and popped up on foam.
Following Holly's [url=http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/18462368-post1.html[instructions[/url] I coloured my base layer and frames slightly differently. Base layer has the snowmen dressed in red and blue, with white Liquid Pearls for the snow, and AppliGlue in the the foreground. Frame layer is popped up on foam and has the snowmen coloured in red and green, with silver Stickles for the snow. The only embossing frame I had that was easy to emboss the whole front was Swiss Dots, otherwise I'd have gone for the snow one. With a scrap of card trimmed off one of the images I added a scalloped border to the frame layer, and then popped it up on foam.
I cut my apertures with Nestabilities.
Too wiped-out from the weekend to contribute any meaningful name to the technique.
