Through the Craft Room Door Anything Goes Challenge

It’s Tuesday and time for another Through the Craft Room Door challenge. As always the theme is my favorite, Anything Goes! There is a new challenge every Tuesday at TTCRD. I am on Team A and this week is our turn to post our cards. The sponsor this week is Oozak and the prize is a $10 gift certificate!

I created my card with a large Memory Box die called “Have a Jolly Christmas.” I chose to emboss with the die on a white piece. I used this sandwich on my Big Shot: glass plate on Tab 1, "Have a Jolly Christmas" die face up, white paper, "No More Shims" thick embossing pad, glass plate. “No More Shims” is a very thick rubber mat that works beautifully for embossing and is distributed by Scor-Pal.com.

I also cut out the die with red and green paper and attached the holly leaves and ornament to add some color. I rounded the corners with a Fiskars corner rounder and added some red and white gems to complete the card.

Beautiful card Karen,the embossing is so clear!!

Brenda said...

I am loving this card Karen! That is one big die cut, but I love the way you used it as an embossing element instead of a die cut element! This would be a great card to mass produce. Love it! Hugs, Brenda

I really like this card. It is so beautiful with the white and the holly sprigs.

Heather said...

Gorgeous!! I love the embossed sentiment with just the little pops of color from the added elements. Great idea! Thanks for playing with CSAYL.
