I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

Embossing Challenge

This week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges it is a embossing challenge.  The challenge is to use some kind of embossing on your Christmas project.  Fitztown is the sponsor of this challenge and has a prize for one lucky winner.

The products I used for my card are:
  • Fitztown digi image - Winter 2
  • Cut and embossed the frame with Gold Majesty Circles by Spellbinders
  • Red Stickles
  • Candle coloured with Copic Markers 
  • Diamond Glaze - for the dripping candle wax
  • 2 different coloured gold glitter pens
  • Paper from my stash
 I think the Spellbinder frame really sets off this pretty candle. Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.


I am entering this card in the following challenges:

CAS on Sundays - Sparkle and Shimmer
Christmas Card Challenge - Anything Goes
My Perfect Life Challenge - Christmas Cards
