And this month's theme is
Use a Christmas Themed Embossing Folder AND Stamps
This month we want to see Christmas Themed embossing folders and stamps together. The embossing folder must clearly have a Christmas theme, so snowflakes, baubles, Santa in a sleigh, poinsettias, Christmas characters etc. We'll also accept patterns featuring reindeer, candy canes, holly etc or folders including Christmas words or phrases. Please do not use for example a circle folder or stripes and say you coloured it red and green so it's Christmas! Let's keep this fun, so please ensure that your card fits our themes and uses both parts of the challenge.
check the roolz before you link up your makes. We are a card
challenge. You must use a named embossing folder. Other types of
embossing are allowed to enhance your project but you must use a named
embossing folder. Both parts of the challenge must be included and also
be the focus of your project. Did we mention the embossing folder??? We have link and challenge limits. Please check the roolz before you link up.
Coincidentally, the same challenge theme is also running over at Jo's Christmas Kickstart Challenge
blog, so if you make your make between the 10th and 23rd November
you can link it up there
Please do check the roolz here and the rules there to make sure you will be in the running for da prizes.
