Waxed Paper Technique Card



We St. Bernard lovers are a die-hard breed! (Pun intended) One of my Bernard loving buddies loves to exchange photos and letters about how her dear "Mabel" is doing. So I decided to send her a little note to let her know that I am thinking about her... and maybe include a photo bragging about my babies... :-)

Materials List

For background paper -

Waxed Paper
Glossy Cardstock
Iron
Memento Ink - Rich Cocoa
Towel

Remainder of card -

White, Black and Brown Bazzill Cardstock
Petite Scallop Circle Nestibilites
St. Bernard Stamp - Eat Cake Graphics
Prismacolor Premier Markers - color image
Sentiment - Unknown
Black Ribbon - Unknown

For background -

Crumple a piece of plain wax paper. Smooth out flat and place between two sheets of glossy cardstock, glossy side facing wax paper. Cover with towel. Heat with a hot (dry - no steam) iron. Let cool and remove. Rub Memento Rich Cocoa pad over glossy cardstock in large swathes. Cover to intensity desired and then wipe with paper towel. Cut background accordingly for project. (Here I used it as a background for my Saints card.) Enjoy!

This is a precious card...I love the technique, I love the colors that appeared and oh my that sweet darling St B is colored just perfectly.
I am a Springer Spaniel kinda gal but I so love the St. Bernards. Gentle giants.

Your card is so nice. Where do you buy your glossy cardstock? Is it photo paper, or what? Thanks for sharing.
