For yesterday’s Product Review, I created a tutorial for the Faux Dry Embossing Technique. I thought that technique was perfect for the Xyron Create-a-Sticker.

A 4″ square of Neenah Solar White cardstock was stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Early Espresso cardstock. More Neenah Solar White cardstock was cut with the smaller snowflake dies from Create-a-Flake 1 and Create-a-Flake 2. The snowflakes were run through the Xyron machine and adhered to the white cardstock square.  The layers were adhered to a 4 5/8″ x 9 1/4″ piece of Berrylicious cardstock folded in half.

The image is from My Favorite Things Flurries of Love. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored with Copic Markers (Hat, boots and coat trimR24, R27, R29, R39, Scarf: BG11, BG13 Scarf: BG93, BG96, Skin: E51, E53, R20). It was cut with Classic Circle Nestabilities, airbrushedwith Copic Marker BG000 and layered on a piece of Berrylicious cardstock cut and embossed with Lacey Circle Nestabilities. Fine glitter was added over the falling snowflakes, Chunky Crystal Crafty Sparkles over the snow on the ground.

The sentiment is from the same set. It was stamped on Neenah Solar White Cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, cut and embossed with Petite Oval Nestabilities and airbrushed with Copic Marker BG93. To finish off the card front a bow out of Polka Dotted grosgrain ribbon (retired Stampin’ Up! ribbon) was added to the lower right corner of the image and Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones in the center of the big snowflakes.

Here is a video for the visual learner:
