DT Card Lexi's Creations

Happy Monday.

The start of another journey for me.  This is my first DT card for Lexi's Creations.  This week the theme is Emboss It!, so you will see lots of different types of embossing on the teamies cards.  Please do pop over to the blog and have a look at all the wonderful projects.

Our Sponsor this week is the wonderful Fairy Dust Crafts Who will be giving the winner of this week's Challenge a choice of FIVE Images from their online Store.



For this card  - which is my first Christmas Card - I have used Sammie Snowman, which is available here, and who is wishing everybody a Merry Christmas.  This has been coloured with Copics and liberally glimmered with Stickles on his hat and scarf, and for good measure just a little bit of Glamour Dust as well.   The backing paper is Frosted Lace,  which  is a freebie download you can get here.  I have darkened the colours for printing,  The silver card across the middle been put through the Cuttlebug in a star embossing folder, and the snowflakes are also die cuts.  I have added Glamour Dust to the poinsetta to give it some sparkle as well.


I am entering this for the following challenges:
