Embossed Snowflakes

Hello friends - I hope you had a wonderful weekend! It is Monday and that means it is challenge day at The Kraft Journal! This week we're challenging you to get started making Christmas cards!

I created this Christmas card using a panel of light craft cardstock that I embossed and brushed with white craft ink. One of the tricks I like when using these vintage-inspired stickers is to stick them on to a piece of cardstock and then cut them out with some scissors. I find that gives them a lot more versatility and dimension. For example, I cut this one out and attached it to the front of the card using foam squares. I finished the card with a seam binding bow and some lovely jingle bells attached with baker's twine.
Something I read out in "blog land" once was why make one card when you can make two? I don't always make multiples but with Christmas right around the corner, I went ahead and made a second one using similar ingredients but because the bow was smaller on this card, I finished it with a button instead of the bigger bells.

I can't wait to see what you create for our challenge this week! Link up by Sunday night for a chance to be named Top 3 and/or to win a $15 voucher for The Kraft Outlet!

Supplies: Cardstock - Light Kraft (The Kraft Outlet), Riding Hood Red (SU!), Salvage Stickers (Tim Holtz), Ink - Craft White (SU!), Seam Binding (7 Gypsies), Twine (The Kraft Outlet), Embossing Folder (Tim Holtz), vintage button, Bells (my stash)
