Finished up my card for Let's Squash It Challenge #13 today. This challenge is asking for double embossing. My card uses an embossing folder and embossing powder technique to make the warm winter sweater card. I would love wearing this sweater! An extra bonus is my background, where another folder shows off the textured sweater.
To start I took a large piece of Stampin' Up! Just Jade cardstock and following a Jennifer McGuire's video, applied VersaMark onto the embossing folder then running it through my Big Shot. Next I sprinkled on Ranger Fine Detail Clear embossing powder and melted the powder. I like how the shine makes the embossed area darker. I tried really hard to get a picture showing shiny parts. Can you see the shine?
The embossing folder that helped make the sweater is an discontinued SU/Sizzix folder called Cable Knit Dynamic Textured. Several stores have this folder.
The cute sweater die and hanger are by Elizabeth Craft Designs from the Winter Sweater set. The set is around a few places on-line, but I had had mine since 2019. I could have made the color, hem and cuffs out of plain c.s. but chose not to do that.
The brrrrr sentiment die is also from Elizabeth Craft on the Words 5 die set which is available several places. It's a nice set with lots of holiday and winter words. Guess I hang on to my supplies! LOL
For even more texture I placed the sweater onto a piece of SU Very Vanilla cardstock embossed with an even older Sizzix folder called Snowflake. The base is also VV, an A2 card size.
Bye now from a colder morning and day here in Minnesota. It was 32 degrees this a.m. when Willie wanted to go out. He wore his sweater!
