Emboss Like A Boss!!!!!

Challenge #320 at Shopping Our Stash is "emboss like a boss" we want to see both wet and dry embossing on your project. Not sure about you but other than doing some emboss resist I haven't done wet embossing in a long time and it was so much fun to pair it with a cool embossing folder.

First I made the background with distress oxide ink and then ran it through the music embossing folder from Darice. 

Using tips from Jennifer Maguire I  cut 3 Hero Arts large snowflakes in white and glued them together, then using versamark watermark I embossed it in clear embossing powder 3 times, just look at that shine. I added a Eyelet Outlet clear bumpy bling dot to the center. You can just see the music background in the picture.

The let it snow die cut is from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I also cut three of these in a teal cardstock and embossed it in clear then I heated it up and sprinkled some Art Glitter Agean blue glitter (if was a freebie I got at last 7 years ago) 

Finished the inside with a 2005 Stampabilities Christmas sentiment.

Not only was this card inspired by the challenge it was inspired by the current challenge at the 
Jingle Belles Rock 

I am entering this in"

Jingle Belles Rock ~~ Your favourite Christmas music option use sheet music.
I used a music embossing folder

That was a lot of fun and mess to make this card,  when you wet emboss three times it sure makes the image smooth and shiny.

Thanks for hanging  here today and head over to the main blog and check out the rules and see what the rest of the awesome design team have made.

Love the shine you got on this snowflake, it looks so beautiful. And what a lovely embossing folder, I think I have one somewhere in this room, must look for it, I think it's the perfect background for this Christmas card, it made me start singing this song.
