Todays quickie tip is taking an embossed cardstock and customizing the color to suit your needs.

Hearts Come Home, Christmas Card, BJ Peters

I have been creating some amazing projects for my upcoming retreat along with some Christmas Projects.  And when I thought about this technique to share, I wanted to do something with some non-traditional cards.  I am sure that you can relate to sometimes needing to not always go with the flow.

Hearts Come Home, Christmas Card, BJ Peters

I had the Hearts Come Home stamp set on my crafting table and I loved the font of the “Joy to the World”.  I embossed that in gold and added it at an angle accented by the Gold Foil cardstock.  The finishing touch is the bow.

Now – how did I get the Very Vanilla and the Gold cardstock with the Powder Pink background?  Check out this video to see how easy it is.


Here’s a close up of how gorgeous the Bermuda Bay color is that I shared in the video.
