Can You Handle the Pressure - Christmas


Dear Ones~
  There's a new challenge over at Can You Handle the Pressure.   For this challenge blog you MUST use an EMBOSSING FOLDER on your project.  Heat embossing (with embossing powder) is permitted but only IN ADDITION to your embossing folder design.  Each new challenge will have a 'TWIST' which is optional ... your choice to use or not.

The OPTIONAL TWIST for today's challenge is:


Here's my card:

There's so many possibilities with this challenge, and I decided to do a Christmas rose. This is a stunning foil plate and stencil set by Altenew. I hope you can see that beautiful gold foiling. It's so much fun to create because the stencil does all the coloring for you. That embossed background is a gorgeous folder by Spellbinders called Tufted. I love it.

The Ingredients:
GKD White Card Stock
SU Evening Evergreen & Soft Succulent Card Stock
Tim Holtz Metallic Card Stock
Spellbinder's Tufted Embossing Folder
