Cuttlebug Christmas in July challenge #41


Good Monday morning everyone! I'm doing my first Cuttlebug challenge this morning found here. This week the challenge is Christmas in July and we have to do some embossing. I think my Cuttlebug embossing folders are one of my favorite tools, so I put the snowflake folder to use on this card. I used the SU set "Holiday Lineup" for this one, and colored the snowmen with Tombows. I added liquid applique to the pompoms and fur sections of their hats, let it dry and then hit it with the heat gun. It's layered on the Labels4 from Spellbinders, and then layered with the top note from SU and adhered to a real red cardstock base. The little bow was made with the Bow-easy that I bought from Sharon Johnson's blog, and to be honest, I don't know how I lived without that handy little tool until now!
I hope you enjoy your Monday and make it a good one. Thanks for spending a few moments with me today :)
