BSS MONDAY CHALLENGE - CHRISTMAS IN JULY




Welcome to the Monday Challenge for Buffalo Stamps and Stuff.  Just couldn't let July end without doing a "Christmas in July" card!

This is a simple, elegant card, mainly due to the beautiful embossing folder.  The Cuttlebug Embossing Plus folder, with the center cutout is the best invention since the embossing folder.  It's 5x7 in size and comes in a clear acrylic folder.  You simply put your paper between the two metal layers and run it through your die cut machine and it cuts and embosses in ONE PASS!  I LOVE THEM!   I stamped the image of the deer, by Inkadinkado onto shimmer blue card stock with clear embossing ink and embossed in white.  Adhered to the back of the embossed piece and adhered that to a 5x7 card.  The snowflake is a cuttlebug die and embossing folder combo.  I cut one out with the shimmer blue and one with glittered white and two with tulle material in shimmery white.  Glued them together in layers and added a blue rhinestone to the center and popped it up on the card.  Added ribbon from my stash and there you have it.

Hope you have a great Monday.  Thanks for stopping by.  Until later..............

Beautiful Christmas card Sue, I agreee I've got to go find that wonderful embossing folder. That really makes the card !!! Remember when we had to use the old stylus to emboss. A lot of work ...
Hugs, Janie
