Emboss It - with Delicious Doodles

Embossing is the name of the game over at Delicious Doodles Challenges this week. Can't get much simpler than that. Just make something - anything - that incorporates either or both dry or heat embossing.

I took the opportunity of playing with some of the new Christmas images and getting a card done for my stock that I will need in just a few weeks time.
So armed with some pearlised card, embossing tools and some images - this is what came out of my craft room. Using pearlised card meant the printer ink stayed wet enough for me to use embossing powder on the image. No need to go over it with any other medium.
Here using the Snowflake Corner. Manipulated so that it printed in two corners. This was doused with an opaque blue/gold powder straight out of the printer, then heated as normal.
The snowflakes on the front and inside are from the Snowflake Collection. Printed onto pearlised silver card. I heat set these without embossing. Then with my trusty blade, proceeded to cut them out.. One for the inside as you see and one for the front.
Slightly off set, I think gives a better "feel". The folder used here is from Sizzix.
Both the pale blue panels are mounted onto a dark blue card base. The closure tab was made from the piece  cut away to make this "Big Buckle card" and stamped using blue archival ink.

Looking forward to seeing those embossed makes of yours. The rest of the team have worked their magic as well. Go check them out!

See you soon and thanks for looking
