My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

6 November 2011

Feeling Blue?

Yes, I am back again - trying to catch up.  This is my second post for today.

I was messing around with inks, embossing powder, stamps and my heat tool last weekend and here's what I ended up with:

Unfortunately in the pictures you can't really see which parts are embossed and which are not!

They are not my better makes, but not bad for just messing around LOL.

Card Ingredients:

PM Gems
