I love finding inspiration on Pinterest. As I browsed through the artwork, a beautiful card caught my eye. I immediately had to try and recreate it with my Trees (2014) stamp, copper embossing powder, and Color Bursts.

Double Mat Card Tutorial

Stamp the tree onto a white mixed media panel with Versamark embossing ink.

Sprinkle with copper embossing powder and heat set to melt.

Cut a rectangle shape from the middle of the embossed tree with a die (I used a Sizzix steel rule die) or craft knife, ruler, and cutting mat.

Set the outer panel aside. Spritz the inner panel with water.

Dust lightly with three primary shades of Color Burst Pigment Powders.

Dry the panel with a heat tool, being careful not to remelt the embossing powder.

Nest the inner panel onto a Birds of a Feather (2009) Lt. Blue mat.
