Vicky's challenge to the CCEE Stampers this week was to use just a portion of an embossing folder on our cards. I was lazy and didn't go down the double-embossing route which was my first thought. Instead I just embossed part of my card front with the Snowflakes ef and then sponged it with white. I'd been planning a simple one-layer card, but couldn't figure a way to emboss the angle I wanted on a card base, so I had to add a panel.
A2 kraft base.
Images are Penny Blacj, Merry Crittermas for the sentiment and Holly Day Critters for the mouse. The mouse is coloured with Couleur d’Art pencils, Glossy Accents on puddle, white gel pen for snow, and I sponged the edges with black before popping it up on the card base with foam tape.

Darling card! Like the little mouse jumping in the melted snow puddle. The embossed snowflakes look nice, too. TFS the link to the CCEE challenge. You are part of a great team of crafters! I think it would be fun to join the challenge. I need to use more of my emb folders that are collecting dust so this is a perfect challenge for me to start with. :)

There you go being all clever, again, Sabrina. I love the angled embossing of the falling snowflakes and how you sponged the edges in black for your faux matting. Beautiful coloring on your sweet image, too. What a fun, happy holiday card!
