Gifts Juggling Elf
I love the way this card turned out - very happy and festive, even if I say so myself :-) It's a bit of a pain that most embossing folders are made for the 4.25" x 5.5" cards. My cards are normally in the 5" x 7" or 5" x 5" range. I did get a stash at Michaels not too long ago ~ 50 cards, sized 5" x 6.5", plus envelopes for $3.33. Can't beat that price! Anyway, in order to emboss the larger mats, you have to run it through the embossing machine twice but this often leaves a very noticeable line in the embossed image. So in order to cover this up, I make sure that when I run it through the second time, it is at a place where I would want to place a ribbon and voila, you can't see it. The elf and sentiment are from a SU! stamp set. The embossing folder is Snowflakes by Cuttlebug. The cardstocks are all from Paper Studio and the gingham ribbon is from Walmart. I used Bic markers to colour the image.
