Hello, it's Stephanie here and I am thrilled to be here on the Winnie and Walter blog every Saturday for the month of January!
For today's card, I wanted to share a fun way to create a textured window scene by creating a small background area and then heat embossing it.
To create the texture in the window opening, I stamped the Mini Scenery: Marbelize onto a white cardstock panel with Black Onyx Versafine ink and then I heat embossed over it with clear embossing powder. Once it was embossed, I added some colour with Peacock Feathers Distress ink.
I cut a small rectangle window out of a second white cardstock panel measuring 4" x 5 1/4" and then adhered it over the trimmed down embossed piece with foam adhesive to create a dimensional window area.
I adhered the finished panel to a black top-folding card base and then I diecut the word Wishes from silver sparkle cardstock and adhered it directly over the window, making sure to add foam adhesive to the center of the word to help support it.
I stamped and coloured in the owl from the Happy Owlidays stamp set and then I stamped the word 'warm' on his belly. I diecut him and then adhered him onto the diecut word to make it look like he was sitting on top.
I added some clear sequins to complete the card and also added some clear glitter to his scarf for a little added shine. ;)
You can see how I created this card in the video below:
