I was trying to find a technique that would look good on a Christmas card. The technique that I found is from Technique Junkies and is called Copic Smooshed Alcohol. The cardstock used is from Paper Temptress. For this technique you use a piece of glossy cardstock. I decided I wanted to use Silver Metallic Glossy. You take a piece of craft sheet and mark on it with several copic markers. I then put several drops of hand sanitizer to the craft sheet. I took the glossy cardstock and moved it around in the mixture on the craft sheet. I just kept moving the cardstock around until I got the look I wanted.
I thought I was ready for Christmas. I started Christmas cards in November. To say the least other things came up and now it is nearly December 1 and have very few cards made. So I decided my post for Paper Temptress needed to be a Christmas card.
I used Neenah Super Smooth Ivory for the base card , sentiment and panel that the tree is stamped on. This cardstock is so easy to stamp on and gave me a great image. The stamped background is from a stamp set called You've Got This from Stampin Up. The tree is also from Stampin Up. I embossed the tree and then added the snow. I had never used snow, but like the look.
