Happy New Year! I should be getting better ready for Leadership and making Sell-A-Bration samples but I wanted to share these holiday WOW cards I made last month.
The focal image is actually hot glue (see my tutorial here). While it is still warm you dust it with Pearl Ex powders… it’s too cool! Unlike real sealing wax it is fast, doesn’t require a heat source and it isn’t brittle. You can reheat it with a heat tool to “correct” the image also!
The backgrounds are done with the direct-to-paper technique (see my tutorial here). I touched up the finished card with some rhinestones (gotta have glitter) and any remaining moisture from the crafter’s inks with Hologram Highlights embossing powder.
The sets are Snowflakes, Alphabet Stew (“Merry & Bright”) and Many Merry Messages (“Seasons Greetings”) which is a new holiday greeting set this year. The Zig silver/gold painty pen touched up around the snowflakes (taking a photo on a slant catches more of the glitz!) and you can see the Hologram Highlights embossing powder.
