Shimmer Paint Emboss Resist Technique

Thanks to Dawn Griffith for sharing this Shimmer Paint Emboss Resist Technique!  Doesn’t it look amazing?  I LOVE it and was surprised at how easy it was to get these results!!  You can make one, too, just follow the steps listed below.

  1. Cut Early Espresso Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Cut 2 Very Vanilla Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Attach 1 piece to the card base with Snail Adhesive.
  3. Stamp a greeting on the 2nd piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock.  Attach to the inside of the card base with Snail Adhesive.
  4. Cut Copper Foil at 5-1/4″ x 2-1/8″.
  5. Cut Glossy White Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 2″.
    1. Use a sponge dauber with Copper Shimmer Paint to stamp random leaves on the Glossy White Cardstock.  Let it dry thoroughly.
  6. Use the sponge roller to apply Early Espresso Classic Ink over the copper leaves.
    1. When the colour is the correct intensity, wipe over the leaves with a paper towel.
    2. Attach over the Copper Foil layer with Snail Adhesive.
    3. Use Snail Adhesive to attach this completed layer to the card front.
  7. Cut out a Copper Foil scallop oval from Layering Oval Framelits with the Big Shot.
  8. Use Early Espresso Classic Ink to stamp a greeting on Very Vanilla Cardstock.
    1. Cut out with Layering Oval Framelits and Big Shot.
    2. Attach to the Copper Foil scallop oval with Snail Adhesive.
    3. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the completed greeting layer to the card front.
