DT post for OSAAT ' Embossing'

Good morning everyone.  Welcome to another challenge at OSAAT and this weeks theme is embossing.  We have some fab sponsors this week.

Are offering 5 pro markers

and don't forget if you spen £10 or more in the Stitchy bear store you recieve the fathers day/sports Collab for free

So on to today's card.

I have used a gorgeous xmas embossing folder from Sizzix for the main white background and matted and layered on black card

The digi stamp I have used for this card is called 'winter trees' from gingerloft in the store, I have layered it on black and used glitter for a snowy effect.

Here you can see the embossing folder a bit clearer, I have put a ribbon around the panel.

The snowflakes are from Marianne creatable dies and have been heat embossed with a Kaliedescope powder, then I have added pearl gems to the centre and a snowflake charm to hang from them.

The sentiment is from a do crafts xmas sentiment stamp set.  I have cut out a piece of card using the smallest nesties scalloped oval.  I have then used Ultra thick embossing powder and heated it  3 times then put a layer of silver embossing powder on top, I then quikly stamped the sentiment into the melted powder with some stazon on the stamp.  I think this is what they call triple embossing!!

Hope you like it

I will be entering this card into the following challenges
