Peace on Earth by Patti Hamil

Hi, it's Patti. Today I want to share a technique that is easy, but beautiful. Especially for any Holiday cardmaking or scrapbooking that you want to do. I started out with one of the gorgeous Wrapped In Joy embossing folders. I chose because I wanted to color in the little holly leaves with different colors.

Here are a couple of close-ups of the finished project.

First I gathered some of the supplies, the embossing folder, my trusty tweezers, markers in colors that I wanted and some gems.

I colored in the embossed parts with several colors of  markers. I chose very light colors for this. I used pink, blue, green and burgundy.

After coloring them all in, the magic starts! I just used iridescent ink and rubbed over the entire embossed image! It lightens and adds just the right amount of shimmer!!!

 I used the Glitzin Glamour just for the little berries on this.

When  I finished, I added an embossed strip across the two sections where they joined (this is a larger card).

I thought the little bird would look perfect on this card too, so I cut it and colored with the same blue marker and used the Shimmers ink on it as well!

This is how it looked!


I used the fancy die for a frame for my sentiment. I embossed a small piece of Gold paper with the same folder to use behind the little frame as a backing.

I added a few matching blooms and some gems and that was it!!! A very striking look but a really simple technique to do. It's fun to play around to see what the ink looks like on the different folders with different colors!!! I hope you enjoyed seeing this and hope you play with this technique too!!!
