DAY 17 - Christmas Inspiration

Good Morning,
Welcome to day 17 of my Christmas Inspiration.
Today is a card design using Tattered Lace embossing folders and dies.
I have used the snowflake 8" x 8" embossing folder to emboss the background centura pearl cardblank and I have also used it to emboss another piece of card which I have then coloured with Broken China distress ink.  I then covered this piece with double sided adhesive sheet and covered it in the smallest of clear micro beads.  The phtograph doesn't pick this up really well but it really does give a fabulous effect.  I have also embossed a circle with the Winter Wishes embossing folder and popped it into another Tattered Lace die (really sorry I don't have the name of this - but if you are interested please let me know on your comment and I will find out)
An organza bow really finishes it off.
I hope you like my offering for today.
I have some quite exciting news for you all tomorrow so please pop in again and I will be able to share this with you.
Today is a very busy day so must dash,
Please leave a comment and be in with a chance to win the bog candy at the end of my 30 days!
Thankyou for spending the time to look in on my blog,
enjoy your day whatever you are doing and hope to see you tomorrow.
Bye for now

  1. This one is so elegant Jo and the soft colours really shine.

    I bought some micro beads thinking I needed to give them a try, but when I finished the card it weighed a ton - maybe I used too may or over loo large and area ?
