Shimmery pink ink adds frosty definition to a 3D-embossed winter garden design.  The new Vintage Lantern and Classic Pine Needle Sprigs in shiny gold mirror cardstock create a warm color contrast.  Hi, Jean here with a mix of pearlescent, shiny and sparkly design elements on a holiday card.

Have a spray bottle of water nearby.  Press Delicata Pink Shimmer ink - from a juicy, moist inkpad - onto the new Poinsettia Corner 3D Embossing Folder.  Spritz both sides of Open Studio Watercolor Paper with a light mist of water.  Quickly spritz more water into the air and pull the inked embossing folder thru the mist to prep it for inky embossing. Place the watercolor paper - smoother side facing the inked surface - into the folder and run it through your diecut machine using the plate(s) and/or mat(s) required for pressure embossing.  Pigment inks are recommended for this technique - dye inks would dry too quickly.

We're working on the product link for the Poinsettia Corner 3D Embossing Folder - here's a picture and a link to our website:

Heat-set the ink.  Diecut the cooled paper with the largest A2 Rectangle Frames die.  Attach it to a top-folded natural A2 card.

Cut natural cardstock with the 2.25" x 3.5" A2 Rectangle Frames die.

Cut Vintage Lantern (including the candle) from the gold Rainbow Reflections 6x6.  Assemble the lantern.  Press Pink Shimmer ink onto a scrap of natural cardstock and heat-set it.  Cut a candle, remove and wick and flame, then attach the inked candle over the gold candle.  Color the gold flame with a bright yellow Sharpie.  Heat-set it.  Attach the candle behind the lantern.

Cut Classic Pine Needle Sprigs from the gold Rainbow Reflections 6x6.  Trim the section on the right side of the larger sprig.

Attach the diecuts to the small rectangle.  Add pink Pastel Jewels.  

Experiment with different pigment inks for a different look.  Inking highlights the details of 3D embossing folders.

Thanks for visiting the blog - have a great weekend!
