At first, I thought about Heat Embossing or using an Embossing Folder with my Big Shot…but when I went to my stamp table what I needed to work on was a gift for Alana's teacher! It's that time again, y'all! My kids track out of school tomorrow and will be home allll month with me! yip!
Soooo, the teacher presents need to go to school tomorrow!
Alana's teacher loves dark chocolate with a hint of sea salt, so that's what's underneath all this gorgeousness. And that's where the embossing comes in. That snowflake was made with Embossing Paste and Stencils!
Here's how you do it:
I cut a sheet of Ocean Blue Metal Sheets from the Add a Little Dazzle store (2-3/4 x 9-1/2) and laid my stencil on top of it.
I used my Wilton frosting knife (because I don't have the fancy schmancy palette knife yet!) to spread the Embossing Paste into the stencils.
Then, I lifted the stencil off and revealed the gorgeous snowflake.
What happened next tripped me up for a while. I added more snowflakes to my Ocean Blue Metal Sheet. It didn't look so hot, so I started again. I should have left well enough alone…
See, I tried this four more times and couldn't ever get as good and crisp snowflake as I did the first time. I'm not sure why….but if I figure it out I will surely let you know!
In any case, a sprinking of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, a scalloped border, a hanging tag and pretty ribbon and I think Alana's teacher might like the packaging almost as much as she likes what's inside!
