From our Gnome to Yours ...

As long as we know in our hearts what Christmas ought to be, then Christmas is. ~Eric Sevareid (1912–1992)

Our cue this month is Embossing powder

I have quite a bit of this stuff and frankly, While I love the way it looks, I don’t use it a lot because it’s a pain to dig everything out, carefully heat the image then have to clean up all the straggling bits of powders that got blown everywhere.

It is great for these subtle hints of something on a card … like snowflakes.

This card was done using clear EP, then using a soft brush to add the background color, which will cause the snowflakes to pop once you wipe down with a soft tissue.


Supplies:
  1. Image, Christmas Gnomes Digi Slimline Card Panel Stamp
  2. Cardstock from Pen+Gear (Base) and Stampin Up!
  3. Embossing Powder from Stampin Up!
  4. Ink from Stampin Up!
  5. ProMarkers
  6. Snowflake Image unknown
  7. Twine from American Crafts
Now come on over to The Outlawz Challenges to play along with us or one of the other challenges that are always in process!
