I got an itch to make xmas cards last night. I spent hours down in my dungeon playing. I saw on splitcoast a lady who did emboss resist with the choc. chip over the versamarked snowflakes on soft sky paper. I had to try it for myself. I had a great time doing this technique. The paper looks velvety in real. I used a gem brad in the middle of the biggest snowflake, some ribbons, punched out a greeting and done. I have a few variations I made last night I will add on to my blog shortly. I love the new blues and anything with brown.. not traditional, but neither am I. The set is The Snowflake Spot from S.U. Now for Stampin Up to get on board with our nearly on par Cdn dollar. The price different is too huge!
