Pile It On! Challenge - 4 or More Embossing Folders

This week's Pile It On! Challenge is to use:

'4 or More Embossing Folders'

We are sponsored for this challenge by CropStop.com, and the prize is a $10 Gift Certificate

Well, I'm sure that any regular visitors to my blog will know that I love using my 'Bug for embossing...so I loved this challenge! I used one of my favourite techinques, especially for Christmas cards, which is to emboss on plain white card. The folders I used were (working up from the bottom layer): 'Swiss Dots', 'Ice Crystals', 'Snowflakes' & 'Snow Dots' (all made by Cuttlebug). I distressed all of the edges, and then matted them on to red card. The image is 'Night Before Christmas' by Penny Black, which I coloured using watercolour pencils, the added some sparkle using Stickles to the furry trim on the hat. The snowflakes were cut using a Cuttlebug die, which I sprinkled with Glamour Dust.


Here are the challenges that I've Piled On:
