Can You Handle the Pressure - Twist - Christmas

 Hello Friends, thanks for stopping by today!

We have a new challenge starting today over on our new Can You Handle The Pressure Challenge Blog and the TWIST theme is ...


Remember, the twist is optional but you MUST use an embossing folder on our projects to qualify for the prize.  Heat embossing is also permitted but only in conjunction with an embossing folder.

 Here's what I've created to inspire you today.  

Today I have used an embossing folder & stamp set that I've had for a few years and totally forgot I had.  This set is by Couture Creations and is called 'To Be Jolly'.

This is a 5x7 embossing folder so instead of using a portion of it, I decided to make a 5x7 card to really showcase the beauty of this folder.  Any combination of the included sentiment stamps work beautifully in the opening.   I used red card stock as my base card and a little Stickles on the sentiment snowflake for a touch of sparkle.

I do hope you'll come check out our new blog and play along.
AND yep ... we will be offering prizes at our challenges ... that's always a fun surprise!

Here's today's prize offering . . .
