Hello everyone! Happy Friday! Lydia here, and I'm so excited to be sharing my project with the new Seasonal Texture embossing folder release.
Check out the entire Seasonal Texture collection of stand-alone embossing folders here!
Check out this quick unboxing of our newest release, and imagine all its creative possibilities. You can watch the video in HD on YouTube here:
Today, I'll be creating a card that has faux letterpress, selective stenciling, and ink swiping.
I started with Classic Pinecones Slim 3D Embossing Folder. I added Antique Gold Pigment Ink to the inside front of the embossing folder before adding a 3″ x 6″ piece of Hunter Green Cardstock. Once embossed, this left me with green 3D images with a gold background. I then selectively ink blended the pinecone images using Classic Pine Stencil B and Espresso Crisp Dye Ink. To add the frosted effect, I swiped over some white pigment ink.
To add a little more shimmer to the piece, I added Iridescent Ink Spray and a few splatters using Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set.
I then matted the panel using Velvet Cardstock before adhering it to a 3 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ white card panel.
For the sentiment I using Joy To The World Typography Die Set. I cut the ‘joy' 5 times from Velvet Cardstock and once from gold glitter cardstock. Then I adhered these together before adding them into place on the card base.
To see how this card came together, please watch the video below. Or over on YouTube:

I have to say, I was not impressed with the beginning of the video. I thought the image looked really dark. But, WOW, once you added the white “frost” to the pine cones, what a difference it made. I absolutely love it Lydia! The trick you showed making the card stock fit was so helpful. It will stay in my mind forever!! Thank you.
Wow! I love the marvelous embossing folders.
I am so new to all of this and I really don’t know where to start. I’m feeling that Christmas might be a good place to start. Thank you for all of your creativity, it is much appreciated.
