~ 411 Challenge 173 ~

What a fun week of card making ~ Christmas music playing in my studio ~ and on Thursday I had two girlfriends come over for the Christmas Stack and then continued today with more girlfriends sharing, creating and just having a wonderful time together. I love what I do and sharing it is the absolute bonus for me.  
I saw this 411 Challenge and I knew I needed to play along ~ I'm still in the Christmas theme and enjoying Christmas in October! So here is my creation ~ it is a little challenging to see in the photo, but I'm pleased with the outcome ~

I embossed Whisper White CS with the Northern Flurry Impression Folder, found in the Holiday Mini (love this folder, it's is a definite 'have to have' in my studio) ~ I then used a sponge dauber and Frost White Shimmer Paint on the embossed flurries.

The tree from 'Wondrous Gift' and the decor from 'Delightful Decorations' were heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder ~ I liked how this was coming together. 

I really had a hard time getting the angle correct when taking this photo ~ the sentiment is also from the Wondrous Gift stamp set and heat embossed ~ the border punch used is non SU and it goes so well with the decors of Delightful Decorations ~ love it!

  • Stamps:  Delightful Decorations, Wondrous Gift

  • Ink:   Versa Mark
  • Acc:  Silver Embossing Powder, Silver Rhinestone Brad, Northern Flurry Embossing Folder, Silver Ribbon & Border Punch (non-SU)
