CAS Be Merry EB Resist Watercolour Card

I CASE'd my CAS Watercolour Resist December Reminder Card


Here is my New Watercolour Resist Inlay Christmas Card!



I started by stamping my Penny Black "Adornment" wreath image with SU Whisper White pigment ink onto a square 4 1/8" piece of  Arches Mixed Media paper and heat embossing with SU White EB powder.  That was my Resist.

Next I sprinkled Color Burst powders: Alizarin Crimson and Pthalo Green and then spritzed with water...blotting with a paper towel until I got a lighter shade of background for my watercolouring.

After my background was dry I used Memory Box Stitched Circle dies to cut around the wreath and made a 2nd die cut, that was one size larger for the frame.

I cut a piece of SU W. White thick CS 4 1/8" x 4 1/8" for the card front and die cut with the smaller circle die.  Then cut another piece 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" for my tent fold card base.

The fun part was putting it all together..like a puzzle.  I popped up the card front with foam tape and attached to card base.  Attached die cut frame with my SU Fine Tip Glue Pen and added glue to my wreath image and inlaid inside the frame.

I added my stamped and popped up STAMPlorations "Oh, Christmas Tree" Be Merry sentiment and was done!  Enjoy and Merry Christmas my friends.  Hugs..
