Let it Snow


This week's challenge at Less is More is a sketch

I thought after all the un-Christmassy cards I've made recently it was time I got back to the festive fun, so I used a Darice snowflake embossing folder and an X-cut snowflake die (a rather lovely recent magazine freebie) along with words from a Fourth Dimension stamp set I've had for years, embossed with Baby Blue Pearls embossing powder that was once sent to me in a RAK, to produce this card

Then I played around with the sketch a bit, and blinged up the embossed panel with some mirri card matting, glitter glue and liquid pearls to arrive at a completely different card using the same basic ingredients

This second card I am sharing with

Super embossing, great take on the sketch, seems to be a perfect idea for fast Christmas cards.

Warm hugs

Saw the second card, and had to pop by to tell you that I love it! I have that I'll have to try this layout too! :)
