Let It Snow! (but not really till next winter :)))

Good Morning Everyone,

Today is Friday and that means there is another challenge from the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog where this week's challenge is to have fun with embossing (heat embossing, light embossing, embossing folders, faux embossing, etc.) As much as I love getting the glittery embossing powder all in my hair and forehead for the whole day, I went with the embossing folder for today's card creation.

I made this using the Christmas Joy Borders & Centers Oval 1-3/4" x 2-5/16" stamp set from JustRite Stampers. I LOVE this little penguin and as much as I love the sentiment "let it snow" - I really hope that we have seen our last snowfall and that it doesn't snow till winter :) I used the one of the cute oval borders in this cute stamp set and then adorened it with punched out snowflakes and bling. The cutie penguin was stamped six times and then colored, cut out and then popped up on dimensionals :) Here is another picture from the side:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Choice Snow White from Taylored Expressions, Bazzill basics (blue shades)
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Bahama Blue
Accessories: corner rounder, divine swirl Embossing folder, glaze pens, scalloped border from corner rounders, bling from Kaiser, ribbon from TE

I seriously love being part of this awesome group - its been fun to create a little bit of the holidays all year long (and that way, I get to use up my papers so that I can buy more papers without feeling any guilt :))))) Check out all of the embossed beauties over at the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog and we hope that you will play along with us!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)

I was looking at the card designs on JustRite Stampers and saw this card, and I love it! It made me laugh because the penguins are so cute. I know this is a very late comment on this post (or early for this year) but the card is wonderful!
