Embossed impressions with pretty pines thinlits…

Hello and welcome to my blog.

The new technique challenge at the Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge blog is to use embossing. 

I embossed whisper white cardstock using the softly falling embossing folder, and then mounted onto crumb cake cardstock embossed with the beautifully baroque embossing folder, this time showing the debossed side, giving it a different look.

I die cut the foliage, pine cones and bow using the pretty pines thinlits from old olive, whisper white, real red and crumb cake cardstock.  I added colour and shading with stampin’ write marker pens. 

The Christmas pines stamp set has some lovely sentiments.  I stamped one onto whisper white cardstock in early espresso ink and mounted it onto wood textures dsp, both die cut using the lots of labels framelits.

I hope you like my card for this week. The Design Team has created beautiful cards to inspire you, and we would love you to join our challenge…

  1. This is very pretty in the muted colours. I like those dies in this orientation, I’d never thought of using mine this way round, which is daft of me.

  2. Stunning Gill! One of my all-time favourite die sets! xx

  3. Beautiful card Gill, very subtle x
