|Gold Snow Bird|
Last year I made these two snow bird cards (Second try above, first try below). The idea started after I did some stamping experiments on different kinds of paper.
I discovered that embossing on photo paper leads to very smooth results, and is great for sparkly projects like the white snow bird below.
|White Snow Bird|
The white snow bird was my first try, and the card came out prettier than I expected. I gave this card to my mom for Christmas; and decided to make a video, using my second set of experimental stamping (meaning I already had a gold and a white bird stamped on two different papers).
To the left is a close up to show the sparkle of the white snow bird card. That blue color you see isn't actually an ink color, but the color of the embossing glue; which to my surprise worked well with the clear sparkle embossing powder.
I also embossed the silver designs on the edges. Both stamps I do believe were made by the Inkadinkado company.
Materials used For gold bird card:
scrapbook sky paper, regular white paper, photo paper, bird stamp, gold ink and embossing powder, translucent jelly roll sparkle pen, snowflake stickers, razor pen, glue, brayer, cutting mat.
I love both the cards, gold and white; though I will say the white version looks better in person than on the computer.
And now, here's the video (below) for you to enjoy. Have fun giving this idea a try, and be creative with whatever you have on hand. ^.~
