Pearly Flakes (CAS87)

The Clean & Simple Challenge for this week is a technique challenge. Jen directed us here to see a tutorial on inking a Cuttlebug embossing folder (EF). I chose the new "Northern Flurry" folder from Stampin' Up! I doesn't cover the entire card front; it leaves room for a sentiment or other stamping. I messed up when I was inking mine, so I sponged it a bit to look like sky. This is actually debossed. The ink ends up in the holes. I used Marina Mist card stock and ink and Naturals White for the embossed piece. I also used SU!'s new Jewels - Basic Pearls on the snowflakes. The sentiment is from "Four the Holidays". Everything used to create this card is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!
