For today's Merry Monday challenge over on lionsmane's blog. This week is a Tic Tac Toe challenge. I chose the top row - blue, dry embossing, and snow.
I used two small Cuttlebug embossing folders (both with snowflakes on them) to do the top and bottom of the cardbase (and added some score lines to hide the marks they left). My centre panel is bordered with blue glitter cs. And the panel itself was created by making a stencil with the large SU snowflake punch, then sponging over the stencil, giving a pale blue snowflake background on which I stamped the large Merry Christmas (which also has snowflakes worked into its design) and embossed it with blue ep mixed with glitter.

These are beautiful embossing folders, Susan! I love the large snowflake font of the Christmas and the subtle snowflakes in the background! An awesome card, my friend! I'm so glad you shared it with us at Merry Monday!

Susan, love the idea of using a punch to make a stencil! Ingenious idea! Love the stamp you used and the wonderful background elements!
