Emboss Resist Technique

Family is a large part of my life as you know, and so are Christmas cards. Each year, my household sends out about 200 cards for the Christmas season. Sounds a bit unnerving, right? It can be! Here is a technique to help the process move along in a flash.

 

This card fits the CAS Watercolor Challenge! Head over to the blog and check out all of the gorgeous cards with Holiday theme.

Emboss Resist Technique & a Family Fun Theme

Tis nearly the season to send out a gazillion Christmas cards, right? My boys love receiving cards, especially during Christmas. We plan many family activities here at home, such as decorating cookies, creating gifts to send to out of town family members and making homemade snow cream. Our version of the snow cream is a little different than traditional… just snow and no cream, lol!

What better way to share my family’s fun times than to create a snowflake card? We also have a tradition of watching the Nutcracker Ballet each year on Christmas Eve, as a family. I whisper to the boys to have sugarplum dreams and receive big smiles in return. I have used Sweet Sugarplum as a foundation color for this project to represent this special family connection.

I enjoyed this design so much, I created four different versions of this project!

Emboss Resist Technique

There are many different ways to create Emboss Resist technique. Once the paper is clear embossed, ink can be applied by sponge, watercolor, smooshing… the sky is the limit! I’m working with the watercolor version for this project.

Here are the steps I follow for Emboss Resist technique:

I used a trio of ink pads for the background colors. Sweet Sugarplum and Berry Burst work great in an ombre’ look and compliment the tones of Rich Razzleberry. For a visual demonstration of this project, please see the YouTube video links below.
