Hi everyone and welcome to the ESAD BlogHop, I am so happy to participate with all these amazing crafters. I had not been feeling the Christmas Feeling up until I was issued a challenge by my team leader to design cards showcasing Mistletoe Designer Series Papers, she posted 12 of the team the below papers and ribbon to play with.
As an added bonus, ESAD were doing a blog hop of the beautiful papers on special this month, buy 3 get an extra one free, what a great deal. It is a great chance to stock up on papers or share with a friend, you buy your favourite, she could buy her top picks and then you share them, bargain.
As soon the papers arrived, the ideas just started flowing, I only needed to make one to share within our Facebook group, however, I was on a creative roll and made four cards.
I choose to use the Snowflake Sentiments as my greetings, gold embossing them, then cutting the shapes with the stitched framelits.
Another love of mine is the new embossing folders on my first card I had used the Striped Scallops folder and on this one I used the Climbing Vine, touching the leaves up with Old Olive blends on the raised leaves.
You will notice on this one I used the gorgeous Subtle Embossing Folder, so lovely and soft.
