Hmmm…what is UTEP you might be asking yourself as you scratch your head. Well, let me tell you! It stands for Ultra Thick Embossing Powder and it gives the same effect that Crystal Effects used to! I discovered this awesome product while watching a card making video. The powder has large crystals, so it can be a little messy…just remember to heat from the underside so the crystals don’t fly away! It’s a Ranger product and I was able to find it at Michael’s craft store.
It’s a beautiful effect on the Happy Birthday Thinlits die. I made this card for a certain daughter who loves photography and aquamarine shades. I felt like going with a little vintage feel. I think she liked it.
