SOS 198 - Texture Me

Happy Happy Tuesday crafty friends!! 

Time for a new SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge!!

This week the SOS crew would like you to "Texture Me" - use your oldest embossing supply (folder, powder, or even a stylus and brass template).

My oldest embossing supply is my trusty old cuttlebug and I think this snowflake folder may have come with it?? I am not sure, but I have certainly had it for a LONG time!!

Here's what I made for the challenge:

Shite I used to make this card:

  • Snowflake embossing folder (Provo Craft)
  • Early Espresso & Crumb Cake cardstock (SU)
  • Frayed Burlap distress ink (Tim Holtz)
  • Cozy Christmas collection (Simple Stories)
  • Mini ink blending tool (Tim Holtz)
Visit the SHOPPING OUR STASH BLOG for all the details on the challenge and while you are there, please show my teammies some crafty love!

Hope you'll play along with us this week!!

Hey, Donna! I think we ALL have that folder, it was one of my first folder purchases (I think it came in a bundle.) I don't like it much either, but I think it is perfect for a holiday themed card and love the way you used it here! Nice job!

Yes I have that folder too, was one of my first purchases after I bought a cuttlebug. Awesome job with the challenge Donna.

Yup, that one looks familiar! I love what you've created though. Embossing folders really don't go bad do they? lol
I adore your focal point and the words you've added. Fun card!
Happy Earth Day!
