Faux Silk Christmas Card


My monthly stampin' ladies were keen to try another technique for their technique book this month.  I have a bit of a look around and finally settled on the Faux Silk Technique.

I love the luxurious look it gives to the front of the card, despite it being a quick, easy and cheap technique to try.  Who doesn't have tissue paper floating around their house somewhere?  A quick tip though - with the new inkpads you need to wait a little bit before scrunching up the tissue paper as the ink takes a little longer to dry.

I used Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla on my card. The stamps used were Ornament Keepsakes, Sweet Essentials and Snow Swirled.

Bye for now,
