Get Stampin' Up embossing folders for less!

If you're a fan of embossing folders (and who isn't?!) you'll be over the moon at Stampin' Up's Weekly Deal bargains in my shop this week. There are no fewer than six different folders all down 25% to £5.63! I've used one of them on my card today - come and see:

The circle that forms the basis of this card has been embossed with the Tiny Triangles folder - I love how the triangles echo the shape of the tree. I kept most of the card white on white and added splashes of colour with the tree and the greeting.

I love how quick and easy it is to create the tree using the Tree punch. I cut one in Chocolate Chip card stock and another from a snippet of paper from the All is Calm designer paper pack, trimmed the trunk off the paper one and glued it to the card one. It wouldn't be Christmas without baubles of course, so I trimmed my tree with Real Red candy dots!

Embossing folders are great for adding texture to a card. For even more texture, I added a bit of scoring to the bottom of the panel and embellished with the fab snowflakes from the Frosted Sequins.

I've still got heaps of Christmas cards to make! During a puppy snooze time this weekend, my youngest son and I made some together. "Could you pass me some red ink please," he said at one stage. "Real Red or Cherry Cobbler?" I asked. "Oh Real Red!" he said. " I'm not having any of that pretend red!"

Thank you for coming to visit me here today. I'll be back tomorrow with more crafting fun - see you then!
