Holiday Blizzard Project – Shelly’s Christmas Card Challenge

Christmas Card Challenge: Card 10
By: Shelly Newkirk, Artistic Guide 

Finished Card Size: A2, 4.25" x 5.5"

Snowflake (Stampendous)
Merry Christmas (Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers)
VersaMark ink pad (Tsukineko)
Black pigment ink pad (Stampendous)
White cardstock card base (Georgia Pacific)
Other Supplies:
Ivory embossing powder (Think Ink)
Gold fine line embossing powder (Think Ink)
Baby Powder
Embossing Heat Gun (Uchida)


  1. Dust entire front of card base with Baby Powder to prevent embossing powder from sticking to anything BUT what is stamped.
  2. Using the VersaMark ink pad, stamp Snowflake on upper portion of card, apply Ivory embossing powder and melt with a heat gun.
  3. If your fingers touched the bottom portion of the card, dust with the Baby Powder again so the oils from your fingers will not trap any embossing powder.
  4. Stamp Merry Christmas with Black pigment ink, apply fine line Gold embossing powder, melt with the heat gun.

Basic Stamping Tip:
For subtle elegance, use Ivory embossing powder on White cardstock or White embossing powder on ivory cardstock.
