Emboss Resist (Gone Bad).

Hola! Our project for Christmas Card Challenges this week is Emboss Resist.

If you're like me, you ask "Huh?"

I did not know what Emboss Resist was. Here's a tutorial that I found on SplitCoast Stampers.

But what I did was this:


Which, unfortunately, came out bad.

Reasons why:
1. The embossing powder was old. I tried three different stamps, and the powder just wouldn't stick. I couldn't work with my images! The only way I made it stick was by embossing the whole ink pad!! *shakes head in shame*

2. The embossing powder was not clear. Which really defeats the purpose. Emboss Resist is like creating sort of a negative space.

Please go to the CCC blog to see the other DTs' cards. Too bad I didn't have enough time to buy new powder or redo a card. But that's what's good about CCC. You only need a NEW Christmas or Winter-themed card! See you soon!

I love that you are so candid! LOL! It's still really cute - even if in embossing terms, it could have been better. :)
