Crafty Cardmakers Challenges #177- Embossing Dry or Heat.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi! back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over
at Crafty Cardmakers.

Jackie is hosting today and our challenge is Embossing which can be either dry or heat.

As usual you can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to just be cards, as long as it meets the challenge, and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule! 

Hope you will pop over and join in.
And here is my project for the challenge:

To complete this project I used the mop up card from these Masterboards.

To begin with I stamped the snowflakes and the tap using stamps by Stampendous (snowflakes) and Carabelle Studio (Tap).
Coloured in lots of crazy birds as I will need more of these later

and used some left over paper to punch out snowflakes.

Preparing sentiments ready for the big push on Christmas cards.

Next was to do the snowflake embossing and the rubbed over this with a blending tool and distress ink.
The punch is another that I used to make the snowflakes which were added after the embossing was complete.
I edged the design with distress ink, layered it with red and green card and then mounted it onto a black card blank.
To complete the card I added the 'ho ho ho' stamp by Tim Holtz, a little ribbon, glazed the tap and gave the bird a nice Christmas hat.

I realise this is not your typical Christmas card so let me know what you think.

I hope you will pop over to see what the rest of the DT have been up to and maybe join in the challenge.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
 Happy crafty card making.
