Hey crafty friends and sister Squashettes - I'm Guest Designing this month at Let's Squash It!! following a win at their inaugural challenge back in October with my robot card. Thanks to Gail and Jo for offering this fun challenge! For December - challenge # 3 - they chose the theme of Embossing Folders with Die cutting or fussy cutting. Both must be on your card - here's my creation:
Welcome to my blog!
Thanks for visiting my blog. As the title suggests, I love to scrapbook, stamp, and sing! I will share cards and scrapbook pages I create, as well as information about my music - Barbershop harmony.

First Guest Designer at Let's Squash It!!
Supplies: Paper - Paper Studio A2 card and solid papers;
Basic Grey Aspen Frost patterned papers;
CZ Designs Sentiment Strips Reverse Christmas
Dies - My Favorite Things Square Grid Cover Up (retired)
Embossing Folders - Stampin' Up Subtle 3D;
Taylored Expressions Nordic Holiday
I started out with a grid die thinking it would be fun to emboss the different squares. While I used two embossing folders, I decided not to emboss every square. I embossed the grid outline piece with Stampin' Up's Subtle 3D folder; just love the soft texture it adds! Both the soft mint and aqua squares are embossed with Taylored Expression's Nordic Holiday - such a fun one! I did pretty well aligning the reindeer squares; the poinsettia ones didn't fit on the squares neatly and I was fine with that bit of randomness. I die cut an entire cover-up using two patterned pieces of Basic Grey's Aspen Frost paper and then mixed them with the embossed pieces to fill the grid windows. A pre-made sentiment strip finished the card.
