Cuttlebug Spot - Christmas with your favourite embossing technique

The Cuttlebug Spot is back today after an extended Thanksgiving break...and the theme of our challenge this week is:

'Christmas with your favourite embossing technique'

A nice easy one to help you get your Christmas cards finished? NO! It took me ages to decide what my favourite embossing technique is...as I just love embossing with my 'Bug! I eventually settled for embossing on plain white card...I just love how such a simple technique can give such effective results. The image I've used is 'Wishes for Kisses' by Penny Black...another of my favourite things. For the background I've used my 'Snowflakes', 'Ice Crystals' and 'Swiss DOts' Cuttlebug folders on plain white card, distressing the edges slightly to add some definition to the layers. The snowflakes were cut using Cuttlebug dies, then coated with 'Crystal' Stickles.


For more inspiration, please check out the samples by my lovely Cuttlebug Spot DT buddies.
