Have I got a treat for you today! This is my Black Ice Technique Greeting card!!  And…at the bottom of this email a Sale Announcement from Stampin’ Up!!!

The unique black ice paper crafting technique has been around for awhile but I had not tried it until now…I’m addicted!  Super fun and easy.  On my video below I share some tips to help you.

Using Copper Foil, Gold Foil or Silver Foil sheets from Stampin’ Up! you can create the same greeting card with three totally different looks due to the foil used.

Silver Foil – really does look like Black Ice on the roads in Texas when I lived there.

While I am not a huge fan of Gold I thought the Black Ice Technique looked stunning on Gold Foil!

How to create Black Ice

Stamp tree on left side of chosen foil paper with StazOn ink.  Make sure it is completely dry (use a heat tool to dry)

Flip foil layer over and add a small bit of Snail, rub the snail on your clothes to removes some stickiness

Place the foil layer on a large piece of paper and drag the StazOn down the foil layer until you have completely finished the foil layer

Make sure the StazOn is completely dry, use heat tool

Next drag the Versamark ink pad across the layer as I did on the video

Pour clear emboss powder over Versmarked foil and heat set

Once cooled adhere foil layer to the card base with Snail on all sides, since there is so much embossing on the card you don’t want it to lift off

Stamp sentiment using Versarmark ink on either Whisper White or Very Vanilla scrap, cut out with Framelits

Pour emboss powder over sentiment and heat set

Adhere the sentiment layer to the Basic Black layer with Snail, add both layers to the right side of the card with Dimensionals
