EMBOSSED SNOWFLAKES?


Good Morning Blogland!

Hope you are all well. 
It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Blog. Each weekly challenge is "Anything Goes as long as it's CHRISTMAS" with an OPTIONAL theme, which this week is
"Make your own background "
Winners are chosen at random.
I have had a little play today, had this idea in my head and give it a go! I've used a snowflake embossing folder but not for embossing....instead I inked it up with Versamark , lay a piece of black card on it and give it a good press. I then used embossing powder and my heat gun and ended up with quite a nice background of shiny snowflakes. It's not perfect but I like it! I've layered it up on white and red card and added a die cut "Merry Christmas".
Looking forward to seeing your makes.

MUM'S BUTTON CHRISTMAS TREE

It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Blog. Each weekly challenge is "Anything Goes as long as it's CHRISTMAS" with an OPTIONAL theme, which this week is

Now this card is very simple but it's also very special to me. As some of you will know, I lost my Mum last year, and this little card is dedicated to her. One of the many things she always had to hand was a button tin, which I have inherited. So I had a little rummage and found some coordinating colours to make my button Christmas tree. Finished off with a twine bow.
Looking forward to seeing your makes.
