We had our Stampin' Up Christmas card class last night. A nice group of ladies came out in the 25 degree weather and we heated things up with embossing! When I think of a classy looking card, it has raised metallic embossing on it. There isn't anything that screams Christmas better than silver and gold, is there?
The fancy technique we did was cracked glass and you can see my example here
After several layers of embossing, you chill the paper and then bend it to get it to crack, just like a broken mirror. How fun! Controlled disasters for Christmas!!
