It's Digi Choosday - Week 26 - Use Some Embossing

Hello everybody             

Welcome to another Tuesday and another great challenge over at Digi Choosday.

This week’s challenge is ‘Use Some Embossing’.

There are a few ways of embossing, but I’ve decided to use one of my embossing folders called ‘Swiss Dots’ and my Grand Calibur to make the card matt and layering and make another Christmas card.  Well it’s never too early to get started and I’ve got a few Christmas things made already.  It’s good to get ahead of yourself even if it does feel a little bit strange creating Christmas projects when the sun is shining.

Not only does Nikky – Polka Doodles produces some absolutely fab downloads and SVG cutting files but she also produces the most amazing CDs and for the Christmas tree elements on the cards I’ve used a great collection I’ve not used for a long while called Magical Winter 1 & 2 CD Collection from the Silly Snowman Collection.  There are tonnes and tonnes of stuff on these two CDs from papers and sentiments to lots of character images which are in colour and black and white too.

You can get the CD here 

I printed the sheet of trees out from one of the CD discs and then layered them on top of one another to create a little scene on my Swiss Dot embossing.  The Merry Christmas bunting is also from the collection, which I've cut in half to drape across the left hand corner of my card.

Here is my crafty make this week:

These are the ingredients I have used:

8 x8 white card
White card
Red card
Blue card
Green card
Black card
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder called Swiss Dots
Silver Encore Ultimate Metallic Silver Ink pad for the edgings
White Opal Liquid Pearls – for dots and spots on some of the trees
Pinflair Glue Gel
Magical Winter 1 & 2 CD Collection for the trees and the Merry Christmas bunting.

I can’t wait to see your creations this week.  And remember, it’s not just for cards, you can create ANYTHING you want from home d├ęcor to cards, just remember to follow the rules listed in the blog.  And not only can you win a fabulous prize if you are in the top 3/random prize winner but you can also grab your discount code.  How fab is that?  The discount code only lasts for a short amount of time so you’d better head off over there right now to grab it.
