The white background was dry embossed BY HAND!!!! What a pain that is. I hope Quickutz comes out with a Revolution die that has snowflakes on it!!! Anyway, I made the beaded circle around jingle shells using a wire earring that I have had for years and used my 1 1/4" punch to punch the saying. It fit perfectly. I should have used red beads but too late now! Anyway, I used CE to adhere the saying to the back of the earring and then tied it on with silver cord to the red gingham. I did put some CE on the back of the earring to hold the wires in. I would have for all those beads to fall off!
The clams hat was done by coloring with a real red marker and I used white liquid pearls for the border and the top and then sprinkled some DD glitter and let it dry.
I hope my clam is small enough to work for this challenge....

My hat is off to you for hand embossing that entire panel! It looks great. I love the little Santa hat on your clam and the cute sentiment. I love the beaded wire earring, too; how clever and creative of you!
