With that in mind, today I have made an Autumn themed card and a Christmas card. Well, I had a lovely new set of Spellbinders leaf cutting and embossing dies, bought with a gift card my daughter Mellow Mummy gave me for Christmas, so I had to try them out didn't I?
I love the way the embossing on the shapes turns them from simple diecut shapes into much more dimensional ones, especially on the fir cones. The slightly pearlised card I used for them helps to highlight the embossing.
This week's challenge at Make My Monday is Dry Embossing, while at Addicted to Clean and Simple the challenge is Embossing so I am entering my cards into both challenges.
Does anyone else think back to the TV series of a few years ago "The Restaurant" with Raymond Blanc saying "I am putting you into zee challange" every time they type the word "challenge"? No? Oh dear, it's just me then.....
