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:

 This is my card:
I love this Stampin' Up die set, I think it's from 2022. I decided to make a masculine Christmas card and this was perfect for that. The only stamping is the the greeting, and I used a great Tim Holtz embossing folder called Lumber for the kraft panel behind the focal.

 The Ingredients:
GKD White, Christmas Pine, Dark Chocolate and
Kraft Card Stock
SU Tidings of Christmas DSP
SU Snow Globe Scenes Die Set
Tim Holtz Lumber Embossing Folder
GKD Feeling Frosty Stamp for Greeting
GKD Chocolate Truffle Ink

 If you head on over to the Can You Handle the Pressure Blog and play along, you could win this fabulous embossing folder.  Don't forget to check out all the beautiful cards the other designers have created while you are there. And I can't wait to see all your wonderful designs!!
Until next time dear reader, ASPIRE to be INSPIRED!
Here's celebrating your CREATIVE MUSE.
