Hello Squashettes.  How's the jolly month of November progressing for you???  I hope you are all keeping happy and well and enjoying squashing stuff.   Gail here today with a little more inspiration for our current challenge Use a Christmas Embossing Folder AND Stamps.  


Please note we are asking specifically for a Christmas Themed embossing folder to be used on your project along with stamps.  If anyone want to make a non-christmas card then that's fine, as long as the folder you use is Christmas themed LOL.  I did seriously consider converting my igloo to a sandstone hut, or a grassy knoll, but in the end the white on white of virgin snow kept me honest.  

I used two embossing folders and a stamp for this card.  All three were magazine freebies!  I embossed a white card panel with Practical Publishing's Igloo embossing folder and, because I wasn't convinced that igloos are only for Christmas, I then embossed Immeadiate Media's Merry Christmas border embossing folder at the top of the panel.  A few snow flakes got partially squished, so I used a little tool to puff em back up again.  If you look real close you will see the line when the folders overlapped.  I will be more careful with positioning my top plate next time!!!   Then I stamped the Practical Publishing Bear on white card, fussy cut and added him to the scene. 

Here are the two embossing folders I used.  Love that igloo!!!

Grab you embossing folders and get squashing!! 

If you do stick with a Christmas card you can also link up at Jo's Christmas Kickstart challenge where the theme is Use a Christmas Themed embossing folder and stamps!  Sounds kinda familiar.........

Thanks for dropping by. Hugz
