Kromekote Christmas Card with Gloria

Hi! Gloria here with you today. WorldWin Papers has come out with a new line of cardstock called Kromekote. This cardstock collection contains foil, glossy, and glossy textured cardstock papers. The cardstock is a heavy weight, perfect for embossing and die-cutting. I know it may be early for Christmas, but I need to get a head start on my cards. Plus, look at this shimmery foil cardstock! It is perfect for the holidays!

I used the Kromekote Silver Foil cardstock for my card. I embossed the silver foil with the Couture Creations Cardinal's Wreath Embossing Folder, and then I gently rubbed the surface with a Sanding Block.

I used Copic markers to highlight just a few elements of the embossed image. I die-cut a small scrap of the silver foil cardstock with a mini tag die template, and then I stamped the sentiment on it with Staz-On Ink, which dries quickly on the glossy surface.

You can see here the "scratching" of the surface that happened when I gently buffed the raised images with a Sanding Block! It gives the card even more dimension.

Thanks for looking!
