More Inspiration for Challenge #12 - Sand It!

Hello Squashettes!  Gail here today with some more inspiration for the current 'use an embossing folder that includes numbers or letters and sand it challenge' here at Let's Squash It! 

We want you to use an embossing folder that includes some numbers or letters and sand it.  I used a scrap of a blue metal sheet for my inspiration post and Nellie Snellen Let It Snow, so I decided to make it into a card.

I love embossing metal sheets and Jane inspired me to try sanding the texture.  I think I need a finer sandpaper for this but it is certainly interesting and fun.  I cut the bottom edge with a snowy landscape stitch die from Stamplorations, and added a fun little elf from PaperArtsy who always makes me think of a stick of dynamite!!  His bell is usually on a thin line coming out of his hat but decided to fussy cut it off and give him a more scotch bonnet look.

Dig out your wordy/numeric folders and sand paper and get squashing.  Linky is open until the end of the month so you have another week to join in. 

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

Oh, this is fun! That elf definitely looks like he’s plotting mischief and the sanded metal looks great with him!
