Bloggers Challenge Week 13-Dry Embossing

Sorry I'm a little late. This week just had it's way of catching up with me and Flying by!!!! I did have a fabulous time at the Stampin' Up! Regional Training in Hamilton this weekend. It is always So exciting to see so many enthusiastic faces and the positive energy is ABSOLUTELY contagious!!!!! It is a chance to renew and establish relationships with others who love to do what you do!!!!

Did you know that the Cropadile makes a great embossing tool???? If you use the eyelet setting portion of the tool, you can dry emboss two different sizes of Polka Dots!! And we all know that dots are hot right now!!!! You can use the Stampin' up! Matpack template to ensure that you get perfect placement of your dots and straight lines. This card was created with stamps that can be found in the Holiday Mini Catalogue from which you can purchase products only until November 30th.

To make This card, I stamped the outline of the Supersized Snowflake onto Naturals White Cardstock and cut out the image. I then stamped the smaller snowflakes directly onto the large snowflake and sponged the edges with Not quite Navy Ink. I stamped the sentiment with NQN as well to the bottom of the card. I stamped the small snowflake with an image from the Naughty or Nice set, punched with a circle punch and added an additional layer as well as an Ice Brad and double stiched ribbon to complete the embellishment. Mount this on dimensionals to make your card pop!

Using my Cropadile , I added dotty texture to the cardstock.....................this is Fun AND easy....A little Glitter to the line of dots in the bottom third of the card just gives it that little bit of pizzaz that it needs!!!!!

Hope to see you in my Studio again sometime soon!!!!!
