Christmas card with White Heat Embossing + Copic Coloring

Today I have for you another Christmas card with a different technique. I stumble this by accident. My goal today was to created a white background and a simple image stamp from Penny Black Joy to the World and coloring it with Copic markers.

I first prepare my card base: 4.25 x 5.5 and then stamp my Penny Black Christmas image with VersaMark. Next, I added my embossing powder and this was where the accident happened. I reached for the white embossing powder instead of the clear embossing powder! Yes, you got it right, I mixed up the two boxes of embossing powder because they look the same and I grabbed the wrong box by mistake. Once I sprinkled the embossing powder, I knew it was too late to turn back. I continue with the blunder and heat set with my heat gun. The image was white on white. I had a hard time seeing it under the light. Bad eye sight I supposed. Haha.

Next I color the image with my favorite Copic markers and the image started to show. I know it is not easy to identify the images, I was just trying to roll with the blunder I made and see what will happen in the end when the coloring was done.

I added some snow with my snow marker,  next added my sentiment “Merry Christmas” from Clearly Besotted Laugh Out Loud Christmas stamp set, head emboss it in gold. and Finally added some red & white twine as the finishing touch.

This card is now ready to be mail to it’s recipient. My first try with white head emboss and coloring with Copic. I think the image turn out alright, it gave me a very snowy, Christmas-ty look. Although I planned to heat emboss it with clear embossing powder instead to get a clear white image, I think sometimes mistakes happen and we just have to make the best out of it. I hope the recipient like the card.

Thank you for visiting today and let’s keep.intouched!
