New Embossing Folder

It followed me home, Mum - can I keep it?? I couldn't resist this Dreamweaver embossing folder yesterday - and I think it works for the latest CAS(E) this Sketch #146
The sketch is

To make the following card I inked into the recessed areas of the folder with Festive Berries and Crushed Olive Distress Markers before embossing. I did need to touch up the embossed card after with the same markers. I then went over the holly leaves with a Tim Holtz fine-tip water brush.
I highlighted the wording with a red Atyou Spica pen, and the berries with Christmas Red Stickles.

(I know what you're thinking - "Simple - yeah, right - NOT!"  The simple bit refers to the finished look of the card, not to the process!!!) Here is the finished result - and I wish my son's camera would show glitter better - the berries and words are sparkly!


  1. Oh, this is so pretty! Wonderful take on the sketch!

  2. Pretty Christmas card! Yes, I'm sure my non-crafty friends have NO idea how much time a "simple" card takes to put together! Such a pretty ef.
