I love to make my Christmas cards if I have the time. I try to pick a different idea every year, not every card is identical but they are all on the same theme. This year I have chosen embossed snowflakes - gold and silver on different coloured card. Embossing is brilliant - you can use it with stamps but also on biro so you can draw or write a design of your own. If you don't know what it is, click here. You don't need to buy the expensive heating tool to melt the powder - just hold the paper over the toaster and watch the magic happen.
Hopefully you can see the embossing a little better here. It gives a lovely raised and shiny finish. I just love these snowflake stamps!
