CSAYL #45 So many Embossibilities and a Fun announcement!





I have been bursting at the seams to share this card ALL week!!! I got a HUGE order ofMagnolia Stamps a couple of weeks ago and just had to ink some of them up! Sledding Edwin and the Christmas Tree Stamp are two of my favourites out of the Bunch! Now that being said, I am sure that each and every Magnolia I ink up, will be my favourite....lol......you KNOW how that goes!!!!





Anyway, the challenge this week is to use Embossing.......you can add heat embossing or dry embossing, or a little of both if you like! I used my Star Cuttlebug to add some dry embossed dimension to the Karen Foster DP on this card.



I added Some Stitching, Christmas Twill, A heavily stickled Heidi Swapp acetate snowflake and a hemp threaded button attune to the masculine feel for this card! Hope you like it!





I used Flower Soft Polar White under the sled and on the snowy parts of the image. Oh my goodness I love the look of this. It's light and fluffy and resembles snow more accurately than flock or liquid applique!

And what's my news???? I'm excited to be the newest member of the Flower Soft Design Team!

  1. This card is fabulous! First off I wanna know how many times you had to tie that dang bow to get Merry on one side of the bow and Christmas on the other - I would be bald from pulling my hair out by now!!!! Congratulations on the Flower Soft Design Team!! That's exciting.....make sure you keep a dust buster on your table!!! I love that stuff but it gets everywhere!!! or it does at my house.....that might have something to do with my cat though.....
    Luv ya
