Embossing for Merry Monday

Happy Thursday to you,

I've been playing along with some blog challenges again today .... well trying to that is!

It's been one of those days.  All I'm going to say is ....  I should tidy up my desk and put finished cards SOMEWHERE SAFE ..... before starting to play with paint!!!!!!  It was only a little bit on my craft sheet .... but it doesn't half spread when you don't want it too!!!

Anyway ....... second time of trying (again!!) with a few choice words muttered here and there ...... I finally got something finished.

It's time to go all festive again ..... just for today anyway.
Merry Monday's challenge this week is all about ......

Embossing


I've gone for a simple, but elegant, white on white, with just a hint of red ....... (you can imagine a splodge of blue paint across the bottom was not the look I was after  ....... not even I could cover that up!!!) Anyway ... second time around ..... minus the paint ...... ta dahhhh!! ........


Very CAS, using a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder for my design, with a touch of added sparkle .....


And a little something on the inside of course .....


Well that's another one done for the festive box.  Now I just need to re-stock everything else.  I hadn't realised just how few cards I had in my stash!

It's cards of a different kind at Walmsley Towers this evening.  Yes ... there's a friendly poker game going on. 
Maybe I should stick to what I know best .... I need my cash for the craft show at the weekend!!!

Thanks for popping by ...enjoy the rest of your day

Cheerio until next time

  3. I love your W-O-W card, Linda, which packs a WOW outside and in! This would make a wonderful design for production-line cards! Hmmm.... Hugs, Darnell

  4. Absolutely stunning, Linda. The red just pops off that elegant white embossed background. Good luck with the DT call at Happy Little Stampers xx

  5. This is gorgeous Linda. Love the gorgeous embossing with the glitter and then just a pop of red from the sentiment. Elegant and classy. I can just imagine it with the sploge of blue at the bottom :) I can't tell you how many times I have forgotten to put a finished card away, only to have my new paint colours make it's way onto it ... never in a good way! :) Thanks for playing along at Happy Little Stampers and good luck with the Christmas DT. :) xx
