Emboss Resist with Jolly Friends
Now wait a minute, didn’t we just see an emboss resist card with Jolly Friends stamps on Monday? Yes, yes you did. But look how versatile this technique is! Today’s card, while it has a very similar method of creation to Monday’s card, looks completely different.
The emboss resist technique is like kettle chips; you can’t stop after just one.
This card was inspired by Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #79!
I’m excited for Christmas, but I have made a lot of Christmas cards. It’s totally time for something different. Jolly Friends stamps are technically a Christmas set, but they certainly aren’t limited to only Christmas.
The Jolly Friends stamp set is retiring, sadly. I really like this set and had about a zillion more ideas for cards to make with it.
- First, cut and score a Whisper White card base.
- Cut a Basic Black panel 1/8″ (0.3 cm) smaller than the card base.
- Next, make an emboss resist panel 1/4″ (0.6 cm) smaller than the card base. Stamp Jolly Friends foxes and scarves with VersaMark.
- Sprinkle the panel with white embossing powder.
- Heat with an embossing heat tool.
- Add sponged ink. My colors of choice were Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral, and Rich Razzleberry.
- Adhere those three panels together.
- Cut a strip of Basic Black and stamp the sentiment from Snow Place on it with Whisper White ink. Sprinkle it with white embossing powder. Heat.
- Trim the ends of the black strip into banner points. Cut a slit up the middle, then cut up to the top of the slit from the corners. No fancy tools are needed!
- Cut a strip of Basic Black striped Neutrals Designer Series Paper. Trim the ends into banner points. Adhere this to the card.
- Attach two dimensionals behind where the black banner will be. Coil a piece of Halloween Night Baker’s Twine around in a circle, adhering it to the dimensionals.
- Use a third dimensional, in between the other two, to adhere the black banner. The thickness of the baker’s twine gave by banner a natural curve. I embraced this. I mean… I totally did that on purpose.
- Add a couple of star Enamel Shapes. I didn’t have black ones, but they were easy to color with a Sharpie.
Using Whisper White Kraft ink works well with white embossing powder for a very crisp and bright white look.
This is a bright and happy color combination. It does have Calypso Coral in it, which is kind of pink on it’s own but it looks a lot more orange blended with these other two colors. So, I think that this color combination would be great for all genders and all ages. Just because a guy is a guy doesn’t mean he doesn’t like colors.
If you like this color combination, you can save this image OR click on the Pinterest logo over on the left side of the screen to see a special image with both the card and color inspiration all in one! Try it out!
