Hi Blogland.. Well, here we are in November already!! I probably don't have to tell you how fast this year has whizzed by!! and how fast Christmas is approaching!!With that in mind, here is another idea for you if you are struggling to get those Christmas cards made.. And if you haven't started yet.. "GET A MOVE ON!!".. Hands up who said back in January that you were going to make a few Christmas cards a week throughout the year, so that they were all made, written, enveloped, and sent out by the 1st of December? Yeah, me too!! Will that happen? What do you think?!
Today's project is part of my submission to the Cuttlebug Blogspot Design Team... Yes, that's right; the site is now back up and running.. So, hop on over to see what the other Design Team (DT) members have been up to. The theme this week is anything goes, so why not take part in the challenge.. Cos "BLOMMING ECK" the prizes for the winners are a-ma-zing!! If I could, I'd take part myself just to be in with a chance of winning one of the prizes on offer!!Anyway, back to today's project. I started off by opening my new Sizzix Stamp and Embossing Folder Holly Background Set (657769). This NEW range feature background stamps with co ordination embossing folders.Generally, you stamp your image firstand then line it up with the embossing folder and pass it through your embossing machine.The pattern around the shapes will be embossed which really adds definition and dimension to the project..I then matt and layered the image with Silver Mirror card and White Card stock adding some Clear Gems as the Berries of the Holly.I also made a smaller version to fill up space on my base card.I also punched a border in the Silver Mirror card using the Martha Stewart Snowflake Trim Punch (M42-70016)adding it and the embossed images to my base card along with a simple sentiment. Nice and Christmassy....
Thanks for checking us out, see you soon.
