Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge #5

Hi folks, well, I sat down today and made NINE cards - getting in as much crafty time before we head out on Friday for our cruise!

These first two are for Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge #5 - {Embossing}. I am trying hard to use up all the images I already have coloured (from this year AND last year) so I pulled out these two along with my hoarded Cosmo Cricket papers. Honestly, if I NEVER buy more Christmas paper I will still not run out, even making 100 plus Christmas cards every year! Oh, and I AM going to be late with challenge #6 as I will be gone all next week so won't get to play along until I get back.

If you are looking for the embossing part of the card, it's on the white horizontal strip. I used the Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder to dry emboss the strip and then inked it with CTMH Baby Pink ink using a dauber.

additional details:
  • cards measure 6x6 inches
  • stamped images: The Christmas Freckle Collection from PaperWorksCo (if you like these but don't have them in your collection, Peggy has them on sale AND if you combine that with the other sale that's on right now, you could get these for a real steal of price - details below on the sale)
  • papers: Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly
  • layout: Sketch and Stash #52
  • Spellbinders: Petite Circles (Small and Large)
  • I used my sewing machine again! Wow!
Additional challenges for these cards:
