Template Resist

Hello crafters, Kirsten here, I hope you’re all well.
I’ve got another resist technique card to show you today, using a template so that you get the effect in certain areas only.


I made a simple template by die cutting circles from a piece of kraft card.


Then I stamped the Joy Craft Vintage Flourish flower stamp with Victorian Velvet distress ink through a few of the circles, making sure I protected the remaining circles with scrap paper. Next, I used a clean piece of Cut & Dry foam to apply embossing ink through all of the circles. I removed the template & covered the circles with clear embossing powder & heat set.


The next step was to blend Weathered Wood DI over all of the card, then wipe it off the embossed circles with a clean cloth/paper towel. You could also use a baby wipe, but you need to ensure you don’t wipe off any ink from outside the circles.


I wanted to create the illusion of more depth, so I replaced the template, but I offset it just slightly. Then, using the edge of the blending foam, I applied more Weathered Wood DI. Again, be careful to keep the ink just where you want it, make sure it doesn’t mark other areas of the card. Remove the template & you’ve got shadows on one side of the circles.


To finish the card I die cut the Joy Craft Vintage Flourish coordinating die twice, on scraps of card I’d inked with Evergreen Bough & Victorian Velvet DIs. I cut the petals from the VV piece & glued them onto the EB die cut with Cosmic Shimmer glue.
 I cut a piece of silver diamond mesh & added the die cut heart & greeting from the
 Craftwork Cards Opulence collection. I covered the heart with Glossy Accents (it was still wet when I took the photo) & added a dew adhesive pearls. Finally, I framed the card with some scribbled lines & layered it onto a piece of CWC Opulence patterned paper.
