I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas

You know how we've heard of things doing double duty? Well, this card is doing triple-duty for me! LOL. I am using this card for this week's challenges on The Cuttlebug Spot and Cuttlebug Challenges. Also, we have just opened up a new swap at Just Scrappin' for Christmas cards, so I'm using it for that as well. Hey, we all gotta do it sometimes. Anyways, the challenge on the blogs were the same this week: to emboss a die cut. So on my card, I used the Snow Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder for the background. I am in love with this one! It reminds me of the "Double Wedding Ring" pattern and it is just beautiful. I took my brown ink pad and ran over it to distress some. I then cut my tea cup using the Cricut Joys Of The Season Cartridge. I ran this piece through the Cuttlebug using Distressed Stripes. I then added a strip of light brown cardstock and border punched it with one of my new border punches: Martha Stewart Embossed Scallop. I also incorporated some ribbon. The snowflake was also cut with the JOTS cartridge and I ran it through the Cuttlebug using D'Vine Swirl. Then a simple stamped image heat embossed with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distressing Powder and I was done with the front. I then decorated the inside. I used Distressed Stripes again on the rectangle and cut out another tea cup with JOTS. Then on the back...yet another tea cup and I embossed it with the "Created For You With Love" folder. I also decorated my envelope with some of the same techniques. So yay! I love when I can use something more than once. I've got the big Fiskateer event this weekend and I am glad I was able to get 2 to do's done this way. Thanks for looking! Have a great day!
