Nuvo Shimmer Powder Snowflake Cards

 Hey card making friends, welcome back.  Sandi here and I have a new video for you today sharing how I like to mass produce holiday cards with one of my favorite techniques and products - Nuvo Shimmer Powder.

It's a take on the Embossed Resist Technique with a fun and messy artistic result.

For today's video I'll be working with this fabulous "Wishes Snowflake" stamp from Colorado Craft Company and using my standard sized Misti to do all the heat embossing.

As I explain in the video, I like to cut up my watercolor paper to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2.  Then I white heat emboss the image onto all the pieces, I think I used 11 for this round.  

As this is a little messy, it's a great idea to get as many pieces ready as you can before you start and don't forget to set up some paper towel in a convenient and close location to set aside each one to dry.

I used painters tape to tape down each piece of embossed watercolor paper to a hard board too.  This helps to keep the pieces flat, it also gives you something to hold onto while you work and move them around.

As you can see, the Nuvo Shimmer Powders come in beautiful colors.  There is also a sheen in the pigment, so when dry, they are beautiful and shimmery too.

Here is my quick video walking you through the process I like to use for this technique, and then I quickly do 3 more color combos for you, before explaining quickly how to put the cards together:
