Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Early Espresso!!!
I have made a Christmas card, which I guess is a strange option using Early Espresso, but I think it actually works quite well, as I have used lots of metallic embossing that screams Christmas to me!
The Star of Light stamp set and coordinating framelits can be found in the Annual Catalogue and are still a wonderful option along with the Holiday catalogue.
Don’t you just love all the shine of the metallics on this card?
I used the Tin Tile Embossing folder with some Copper Foil before I sponged some Early Espresso ink onto it. I then sprinkled on some Gold Embossing Powder in small sections and heat set it. I repeated this process with the Silver and then the Copper Embossing Powders and finished with some Clear Embossing Powder over the Early Espresso ink that may not have been covered, otherwise it would rub off.
The star was die cut in Early Espresso card and the smaller fancy die in Copper foil.
Look at just how shiny this background is!!! So pretty. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark ink and copper embossing powder. I used my paper snips to create the banner, but you could also use the Triple Banner Punch. I send Christmas cards to some of my friends who are male and live alone, so this is the perfect card choice for one of them this Christmas!
