This week's Ways to Use It Challenge asked us to use the Glittery Embossing technique. This was so much fun!
I decided to use a square card to accommodate my large scalloped circles, so I cut a 5 x 5 card base from Real Red card stock. I cut a 4.75 x 4.75 piece of Whisper White card stock to layer on top of the base (in this photo it looks more like silver than white, but it's actually a white square). I die cut a piece of silver card stock and a piece of Real Red card stock with scalloped circle dies. For the glittery embossing, I dry embossed the red circle with the Snowburst embossing folder and set it aside. I squirted some some Stickles on a piece of scrap card stock and spread it out a bit, then ran my brayer through the Stickles until it was completely covered. (I used Star Dust Stickles to create an icy look, but it's hard to see in this picture.) I ran my brayer several times over my embossed red scalloped circle to deposit the glitter glue all over the embossed piece, then set it aside to dry.
Next I stamped my stocking in Real Red on another piece of white card stock and die cut it. I added silver glitter glue to the top and tiny rhinestones to the center of each snowflake. I set the stocking aside to allow the glitter glue to dry overnight.
The next day, I adhered the layers to each other and attached the stocking with dimensionals (I added a bit of Tombow Mono Multi glue on top of the dimensionals to attach the stocking more firmly to the embossed background). I curled the edges of the red embossed piece to add even more dimension. I added a rhinestone to each corner of the card and a white liner to the inside panel.
