A Touch of Copper

Hi!  Today I have a card for you featuring the Evergreen Embossing Folder from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.  (By the way, the catalog ends on January 4 – so make sure you pick up those must haves before they are gone for good!).

I love this Embossing Folder and felt it really didn’t need much more to make a Christmas card.  The details of the trees are just beautiful.  To make it really pop, I added a piece of Copper Foil to the Very Vanilla layer before running it through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine.

To match the Copper Foil, I embossed the sentiment – which is from the Snow Wonder stamp set also found in the August-December mini catalog.  As we don’t have Copper Embossing powder, I used Cinnamon Cider ink.  To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Ink the stamp in Versamark Ink
  2. Ink the stamp in Cinnamon Cider Ink
  3. Stamp on Very Vanilla scrap
  4. Sprinkle on Clear Embossing Powder
  5. Heat set with heat tool
  6. If doing multiple, make sure you clean your stamp before reinking in Versamark to keep your Versamark pad clean.

The sentiment is die cut with a Stitched Rectangle die.  A few Elegant Faceted Gems finishes the card.

I could easily see using this folder for masculine birthday cards, sympathy cards or even thinking of you.

Don’t forget to check out the Year End Blow-Out Sale for retiring August-December Mini products.  It ends on January 4th!

Thanks for stopping by!
