This was such a fun card to put together - because there was GLITTER and more Glitter and LOTS of GLITTERY embossing powder. I'm more than partial to sparkly EP.
My Tip Today:
Making a straight line for embossing powder: In my card above, there is a green glittery base created with Moss Star embossing powder. On top of that is a Brown Umber matte layer with the MS Punch Around the Page edger.
That "coppery-glittery-mica-powdery texture next to the decorative edging is the same brown paper - not a separate layer.
When using frame die cuts or Martha's punch-around-the-page punches, it is possible to achieve two textures on one layer by carefully applying VersaMark ink around the edge of the punched out panel.
Lay your stamp pad carefully on the line where the EP is desired. Kind of press hard, with just a tad of "smooshing", but don't move the pad or you'll lose the straight line (got that?) haha
Once that is done (you may need to do two or more separate applications between embossings so the VM does not dry), simply sprinkle on your EP and heat.
Beautiful creamy Bronze Rose Cosmic EP for the sentiment provides more bling,
atop the Peruvian Lily Velvet glitter ring,
the Dandy Dandelion Glittery EP!
(but I don't want any help - I like my addiction)
Tip Number Two:
The very glittery yellow scallop circle was made by smooshing VersaMark Ink on Ivory colored cardstock, and heat embossing Dandy Dandelion EP on it. Punch as needed.
One last wonky photo to show off the various textures LOL:
