Can You Handle the Pressure - WINTER

 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:
Oh my GEEEE - aren't these little snowpeople just the cutest you have ever seen? This is a die set by Tim Holtz called Chilly and Freezy. So stinkin' FUN!!! Now I have to admit that this is quite labor intensive, but it's so worth it. I just took my time and it all came together. The background embossing folder is a new one from Simon called Filament Snowflakes. It's so delicate and I love it.

The Ingredients:
GKD White, Lipstick and Red Hot Card Stock
Recollections Blue Card Stock
SSS Filament Snowflake Embossing Folder
Tim Holtz Chilly and Freezy Die Set
HOTP Janie's Snow Friends Stamp for Greeting
GKD Frozen Rhinestones

 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.
