Tuesday Night Card Class: November 30, 2010

For this first card, I wanted to create a design that can be completed in about 5 to 10 minutes (depending on your stamping speed).  The embossing makes it look like you spent forever creating it ... but that's the secret behind using the Big Shot!   I used Baja Breeze, Garden Green, and Real Red as my color combination.

This card features the popular Dasher reindeer stamp (116816, $8.95).  I used the Emboss Resist technique to make the image pop!  This card takes a little more time than the first design, but don't you just love how the pattern of the paper shows through Dasher's body?


  1. Use Embossing Buddy on Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper (DSP) to remove static.
  2. Stamp Dasher onto DSP using Versamark ink pad.
  3. Heat emboss using Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Tool.
  4. Sponge Early Espresso ink all over the DSP.  The clear embossing powder will resist the ink, allowing the printed pattern on the paper to show through.
  5. Use a tissue to wipe off any excess ink from your paper.
  6. Optional: Crumple up the DSP to give a "distressed" look.

The third card we will be making features the Simply Said stamp set.  This set can be purchased separately or as part of a discounted product bundle that is available through our Online Spectacular promotion.  Hurry - this promotion ends on November 30!
