Lovely as a Tree Textured Waxed Paper Technique

Today I have a fun technique to share with you.  It's called the "Textured Waxed Paper" technique.

It's a very simple technique to do too.  It's often done using glossy card stock but Stampin' Up! has retired the glossy card stock so this one is done using the shimmery white card stock.  

First you take a piece of waxed paper and place it inside an embossing folder and run it through your Big Shot like you normally would.  Then you take two pieces of your cards stock and sandwich the waxed paper between it.  Then you will iron the card stock and the wax from the waxed paper will transfer over.  You will also have 2 pieces of waxed card stock to work with!  

Next you sponge on the color.  It will transfer to the card stock and resist the waxed part.  Wipe off piece with a paper towel to get any excess ink off the waxed part.  And you are done!  Isn't that fun?  And easy?  And pretty?

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
