**Hi everyone! If you're looking for my Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Special Thanks blog hop post, please click HERE.
Wow, it's December--I can't believe it! It's been cold in South Dakota, which inspired today's card. :)
I'm guesting for the Little Tangles Team today for their new challenge--embossing! You can check out the details of the challenge on the Little Tangles blog.
Here's my card:
I started this card by heat embossing two trees from the Neat & Tangled Winter Wishes set. I then repeated the stamping/embossing about 20 times to create a background. I was inspired by one of Laura Bassen's cards, and I did some gradual blending with Distress Inks. I added some splatter with a Pearl mist to give the background some shimmer.
Here's a picture of the background:
On top, I die-cut a Simon Says Stamp Eliza snowflake and layered a sentiment from the Winter Wishes set. The card still didn't feel finished, so I threaded some Crystal Clear and Christmas Mix sequins.
Here's a close-up:
I hope you'll play along over at Little Tangles with the embossing challenge! You can link up your projects HERE.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great day!
