Embossing over at Winter Wonderland

Get me making a start on my Christmas cards in May! The challenge this week over at Winter Wonderland is embossing - either heat or dry. I've used both!

The reindeer and snowflakes are Kanban stamps and I have embossed the reindeer in black sparkle embossing powder. The embossed pieces of card are a bit of a hotch potch! The piece at the back was embossed using the Sizzix Birthday Vines folder, the middle piece was from my stash box and the dotty one is the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. I've used the X-Cut Flower Doily punch for the pretty border.

The snowflakes are Spellbinders dies - they took about 8 rolls through the Calibur to cut and then wouldn't come out of the die. The air was blue! The ribbon is black silk ribbon from WOC. Never again - it's as soft as butter and I couldn't tie the wretched stuff!!!!

I think with a couple of tweaks it might end up as my batch Christmas card design. I need something that will go in the standard post so I'll have to lose the bow. Will have to think what to replace it with. You can tell there are no Crafter's in the senior posts at Royal Mail!!!!

I missed the Distress Marker sets at Joanna Sheen. I am beyond steaming mad.

I'm going to enter this into:

Winter Wonderland - Embossing
