A Christmas Quilt

I'm here today to share a card I've made using an embossing folder together with a digital image from The Stamping Boutique.  They are our fabulous sponsors this month.


I punched out a series of 1.25" squares from three different Christmas paper and adhered them to a scarp of white paper.  I trimmed and then run through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder.  I printed out The Stamp Boutique sentiment (available HERE)  and die cut with a Cottage Cutz stitched oval.   Edged it with some soft green in.  

Do come and join us with your wet or dry embossing (or both!)

Candy Cane Corner

My sample for Die Cut Divas. is a wonderful Stamping Boutique image that is perfect for the holidays.  Color the image in and add a sentiment and you've got it.  This was fun to color and took only a little time.  I hope you like it.

I think you can see the embossed framing around the outside of the blue panel.
